The Anaheim Police department took the bull by the horns and implemented their revolutionary Intelligence Led Policing (ILP) Strategy in 2010.
“The idea of this program is to reduce all crime by combining problem-solving policing, information sharing, and police accountability with enhanced intelligence operations,” said Lt. Steve Davis.
Detectives are able to determine, through use of criminal records and previous trends, who is most likely to commit these crimes. This process allows detectives to forecast problems and zero in on the most likely offender thanks to a highly effective point system. The higher the points, the more likely the offender is the one committing the crime.
Intelligence Led Policing Strategy can also assist with solving battery thefts and preventing sexual offenders.
