SF Usual Suspects

Number crunchers

Borrowing a page from their friends in New York, the San Francisco Police Department is making better use of crime data to help them, well, fight crime.  The department’s new Bay Area Regional Information Crime Center takes a look a where the most criminal behavior is occurring and then beefs up foot patrols in response.  Sounds like a good (if somewhat obvious) plan to me: Better Data + More Cops = Less Crime.
