Czech police creating “crime rate map” to highlight high-risk areas

11-06-2015

The Czech police are putting together a “crime rate map” highlighting high-risk areas, the director of the country’s riot police, Martin Hrinko, said at a conference in Prague on Wednesday. Mr. Hrinko said the project would be based on data received from patrols on the ground, local authorities and citizens. Pilot versions of the system are already running; one, in the Central Bohemian town of Kolín, has reportedly led to a 25-percent fall in crime.
