PublicEngines Announces New Crime Prediction Tool: CommandCentral Predictive™

New Product Enhances the Ability of Agencies to Predict and Prevent Crime

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - Aug 1, 2013) -

  • Combines sophisticated predictive analytics in an easy-to-deploy cloud-based solution
  • Provides detailed predictions directly to officers
  • Represents extensive work with agencies to field test accuracy and develop product features
  • From the leader in cloud-based crime analytics

PublicEngines™ (, the leading provider of cloud-based solutions that facilitate crime analysis, supply actionable intelligence, and increase community engagement for law enforcement and governments announced CommandCentral Predictive™, a highly accurate crime prediction tool designed to deliver daily reports to law enforcement officers to aid in predicting and preventing crime.

CommandCentral Predictive solves a major hurdle in most agencies: pushing actionable information to officers in the street. Recent surveys have shown that one of an analyst's primary responsibilities is to work directly with patrol staff on their tactical patrol needs. Yet many analysts don't have the time to support every officer and every beat with detailed analysis and direction on a daily basis. CommandCentral Predictive is designed to close the analyst to officer gap by providing a tool that focuses officers on high-probability crime areas and allows analysts to focus on deeper analytical work. CommandCentral Predictive is also ideal for agencies without a crime analyst as it automatically delivers accurate, actionable prediction reports on a daily basis in a way that officers can use.

CommandCentral Predictive uses a highly accurate and proven prediction engine to provide agencies a tool to be more efficient and effective in predicting and preventing crime. Officers can use daily prediction reports to help create directed patrol plans to maximize agency resources.

"Most other crime analytics tools assume crime analysts have excess time to use them and work directly with officers in the field. We built this tool for both analysts and officers to use, and built it in a way that is easy-to-deploy," said William Kilmer, CEO of PublicEngines. "As we have been working with crime analysts and command staff on CommandCentral Predictive, all of the feedback we received was that this product would deliver exactly what they were looking for."

Additional details on CommandCentral Predictive features will be announced soon. Requests for a demonstration of CommandCentral can be made at
