However there are challenges to realising this in the real world and some of these challenges will be discussed in relation to two projects for large UK police forces.
Project 1: Using analytics to identify high risk gang offenders
Project 2: Data Sharing to help identify vulnerable children

He has also written on Digital Policing for the Telegraph. His passion and support for public safety was recognised when he won a National Policing Award as the Best UK Non-Police Information Account on Twitter.
The topic of his talk will be on how analytics can be used to help make the world safer.
There is a huge potential to use data analytics to help prevent, respond and solve crimes more effectively but there are some challenges to realising this in the real word.
