OPD crime data – background

13 Jan 13

In preparation for discussions with OPD and Oakland IT, I tried to do my homework, and prepared some slides for our conversation.  Others have expressed interest in these slides, and so I’m posting them here. It has some information about data flowing into and out of OPD, ‘best practices’ in other cities, and some obvious constraints (as I understood them then!).

One revision i’d make now:  Chicago’s ClearMap facility is a great example of what is possible.
