Fresno Police Department
Crime Statistics and Reports
The newly created Predictive Policing Unit consists of three professional crime analysts and a sergeant. It is intended to ensure deployment of police resources in the most efficient manner possible, by making predictions where and when certain crimes are likely to occur. The analysts also work with investigative units by helping to identify crime trends, analyze existing trends and assist with suspect identification. In addition, our public webpage, "Fresno Crime Watch" allows Fresno residents access to crime data in their neighborhoods.
Real-Time Crime Center
The Fresno Police Department is currently developing a real-time crime center (RTCC), which should be operational late-2014. With the RTCC, our officers can respond to critical events with more operational intelligence - better prepared to make smarter and safer decisions to resolve these incidents. Before even arriving at the scene of an in-progress event, the RTCC can alert responding officers to potentially dangerous situations using information from multiple data sources, including commercial records, public and private video, Computer-Aided Dispatch, Records Management System, and other commercially available and proprietary systems.
