Bill Garcia @BillGDocumenter 5/34
We are starting with a presentation from the U of C Crime Lab on predicting police conduct.
Bill Garcia @BillGDocumenter 6/34
U of C studied the psychological effects of violence on community members and police officers. Trauma exposure may increase risk of suicide and policy misconduct.
Bill Garcia @BillGDocumenter 7/34
The U of C Crime Lab built a statistical tool to predict police misconduct based on past patterns.
Bill Garcia @BillGDocumenter 8/34
U of C studied 5 years of past information on officers (e.g., complaints and arrest records). Their model attempts to predict risk of policy conduct over next two years. The model predicts a small number of high-risk officers, which appears to be confirmed by actual outcomes.
Bill Garcia @BillGDocumenter 9/34
On- and off-duty officer risk are correlated. Some departments like the LAPD implemented initiatives concerned with improving officer mental health. The results suggest reduced misconduct and increased community ties.
