RTM is risk assessment for places and diagnoses crime patterns. It identifies environmental conditions that contribute to crime problems. RTM drives decision-making and action for public safety. The Data-driven RTM model fits seamlessly with local data practices which have significantly ramped up over the last several years and will markedly improve the way we strategically deploy precious resources.
OPDA Screening Chief Andre Gaudin Jr. said, “We’re very excited to share this force multiplier with our partners at NOPD which will help better understand the relationship between our communities and the crime that impacts these areas. This data-informed community engagement is necessary for understanding crime trends. RTM is a potential game-changer in the approach of law enforcement officials in increasing safety and properly engaging with crime hot spots in our city. ”
