Project Overview

The Detroit Police Department (DPD) will develop an alerts system that tracks criminal re-offending, with use of community policing and SARA model principles in mind. They hope to implement new data-driven community policing strategies that are specifically designed to prioritize the improvement of the interpersonal relationships between returning citizens, the police, and the surrounding community.
