RTM forecasts are better than hot spot mapping. RTM outperforms methods used by ‘predictive policing’ apps. Policing with RTM lowers crime; Many cities saw reductions over 30%. 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.
