Ironside’s IronShield predictive policing platform gives police departments the tools and knowledge they need to anticipate criminal behavior and proactively prevent crime, which is one of the largest factors in crime reduction. It utilizes powerful predictive models tailored for each community’s unique geography, weather, and history right from the start through its core module for hot spot policing, producing intuitive visual map displays of where crime is most likely to occur.
