SF Weekly has a very thorough report on PredPol, another entry in the "predictive policing" field. According to its website, PredPol's software ("developed by a team of PhD mathematicians and social scientists" from a variety of California universities) algorithmically determines where crime is likely to occur and cranks out a map highlighting 500' x 500' "boxes" that are possible criminal hotspots -- places officers should patrol more heavily.
