Evidence in Books
RTM forecasts are better than hot spot mapping. RTM outperforms methods used by ‘predictive policing’ apps. Only RTMDx has independent research to prove its accuracy and reliability.
Policing with RTM lowers crime. Many cities saw reductions over 30%
Actionable and Civilly Just.
Risk maps are simple to understand and easy to share. RTM shows WHERE to go and helps to answer WHY to be there, so actions are objective, transparent and evidence-based.
RTM is place-based, not person focused. It’s less susceptible to bias and it promotes positive engagements with communities.
Identifying real-time risks for ambush or injury also improves officer safety.
