Crime incident management system "Comstat" that analyzes criminal information that occurred in the past and predicts the occurrence of the next incident. Overseas, it is introduced by New York City Police Department etc, and the Kanagawa Prefectural Police also introduced "Kanagawa version Comstat" to all departments from April.

Under Kanagawa Prefecture, there were many indecent cases aimed at primary school students, so we predicted the location of the next incident by using this Comstat. Then, the case actually occurred within this prediction range, and a man similar to past sighting information was reflected in the crime prevention video, it seems that it led to the arrest of the suspect.

Details are as below.
Prospects for the next occurrence, forced obscene suspect arrest: society: YOMIURI ONLINE (Yomiuri Shimbun)

According to the report of the Yomiuri Shimbun, Kanagawa Prefectural Police Tama Station arrested an unemployed man (25) on June 2 on suspicion of showing an obscene image to two girls in elementary school girls or to touch the lower body .

The criminal case management system "Comstat" introduced by Kanagawa Prefectural Police, who led to the arrest of the suspects, This is to analyze past criminal cases etc and to predict where the next incident occurred, "Kanagawa version Comstat" isIntroduced ahead of Kamakura Department and Oboe Department from November 2009And from this AprilOperation started at all 54 departments in prefecturewas doing.

At the Tama station, many cases of obscene incidents aiming at children around the scene occurred, so we analyzed the incident with "Comstat". Then, we could narrow down the next occurrence prediction place to within 250 m radius. For this reason, investigators were intensively introduced, monitoring videos were also set up based on the escape route of the criminal so far, and vigilance was done at the 24-hour posture. The suspects caused an incident within this forecasting range in May and it seems that the suspect was arrested because of the appearance in the surveillance video.

This "Comstat", already in Saitama prefectureDeveloped and operated the Saitama version Comstat in 2002 (2002)It seems to be doing. Looking at the case in Kanagawa, I feel that it seems to be quite effective, but is there no plan to be introduced all over Japan?
