PROVE (Prediction of Repeat Offending and Victimization in the Environment) (Software)

Please read the full abstract regarding this research and free software tool on the NCJRS website here: (https://nij.gov/topics/law-enforcement/strategies/Pages/research-on-repeat-crime-risk-leads-to-software-tool-development.aspx).

Annotation: This web page profiles and provides free downloading access to the beta version of a software tool that enables law enforcement agencies to forecast the risk for particular types of crime by geographic location.

Abstract: The acronym for the software is PROVE (Prediction of Repeat Offending and Victimization in the Environment), The research team that developed PROVE partnered with Azavea, a Philadelphia-based company that creates civic geospatial software and data analytics for the web. The research team examined Philadelphia statistics for crimes that included homicide, rape, aggravated assault, robbery, burglary, and motor vehicle theft. Researchers also considered long-term and short-term risk and near-repeat crimes on a 2-week timeframe.

BCS - MARVLIS Forecast LE (Software)

MARVLIS Forecast LE is the latest evolution in the MARVLIS family of products.  Leveraging the power of ArcGIS Server, key information is distributed throughout the department using a series of portals, or dashboards, designed for any level user. Currently, MARVLIS Forecast LE consists of three finished modules; COMPSTAT, Admin Stats Dashboard, & Operations Monitor. Three more modules are in development; Patrol Client, Tactical, & Investigative.
The COMPSTAT module is designed to make departmental meetings easy.  Agency data is compiled and categorized for the previous 4 weeks into a simple interface, enabling anyone in the department to conduct scheduled or impromptu meetings.  Whether used for routine COMPSTAT-style meetings, Neighborhood Watch programs, or pre-shift assemblies, the COMPSTAT module of MARVLIS Forecast LE presents agency data in a clean, professional display for all audiences

It’s often a challenge to present large amounts of data in a format that can be easily understood.  The Admin Stats module of Forecast LE does just that.  Using a series of graphs linked with an intelligent map, this module gives departmental access to major agency data types and analysis in an intuitive display.  Part 1 and 2 crimes, field contacts, traffic, and calls for service information and statistics can be viewed by code, date range, jurisdictional boundary, shift, and more making it easy for officers and staff to get the intel they need without adding to your analyst workload.

The Operations Monitor module provides a real-time, tactical display of active 911 calls and AVL positions and statuses.  The intuitive interface presents a variety of metrics showing fleet load and distribution of activity by zone combined with real-time data such as traffic, weather warnings/radar, DOT information, and traffic camera access.  Leveraging your organizational GIS data in conjunction with Esri basemaps and a variety of real-time data feeds, Operations Monitor helps decision makers by integrating all these data into one holistic display. ​
