Public Safety

Public Safety Projects

Our primary project in public safety is building a Machine Learning based Early Intervention System for Police Department to help identify officers at risk of adverse interactions with the public in order to match them with appropriate early interventions. This work was initiated through the Obama White House Police Data Initiative.

Our system is currently being deployed at Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department. It is also being used by Metro Nashville Police Department and we are actively extending it in collaboration with CMPD, MNPD, Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police.
