Public Safety

Our primary project in public safety is building a data-driven early intervention system (EIS) for police departments. The EIS helps identify officers at risk of adverse incidents — such as sustained complaints, unjustified uses of force, and preventable accidents — in order to match them with appropriate early interventions. This work was initiated through the Obama White House Police Data Initiative.

Our system has been deployed at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department. We are also collaborating with the San Francisco Police Department, Knoxville Police Department, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police. We recently formed a partnership and licensed our EIS work to Benchmark Analytics. We are currently working with them to scale and productize our system.
