Detroit - Fighting Crime with Datameer Big Data Analytics




Fighting Crime with Big Data: Learn how the the Detroit Crime Commission is using big data analytics and Datameer to fight crime.
Topping Forbes' list of the most dangerous cities in 2013 for the fifth year in a row, Detroit is taking a proactive approach to combating these issues & fighting crime.

The DCC needs to aggregate terabytes of proprietary and public crime-related data to assist in investigations as well as supplement public notifications and coordinate related activities.

The DCC selected Datameer's big data analytics application to integrate, analyze and visualize the terabytes of data.

Datameer is the only end-to-end solution that was able to tackle all key tasks of the analytics process and support DCC in Fighting Crime in Detroit.

The time saved on pulling data together, analyzing and visualizing the findings allowed the commission to laser focus their effort on discovering what and who is driving violent crime. "Datameer allows law enforcement to basically understand what is driving crime and kind of step back and be a little more proactive and not totally reactive," said Andrew Arena, Executive Director, DCC.

This is just the beginning for data-driven law enforcement initiatives in general and Detroit specifically, but the implications are stunning.

Detroit blight removal: Behind the scenes with Motor City Mapping


Since mid-2013, the Skillman Foundation has partnered with several organizations to address blight removal in Detroit. With the Blight Authority and Brightmoor Alliance, the Foundation piloted a blight elimination plan in Brighmoor, one of Detroit's most blighted neighborhoods. With Data Driven Detroit and Loveland Technologies, we introduced Blexting, or "blight texting," an app that has made it possible to compile the largest, most accurate data set ever collected concerning Detroit's blight. Backed by a number of other partners through the Blight Task Force, that technology is now at work as teams travel Detroit surveying every property in the city.
