In May 2012, UCL began working with the Metropolitan Police Service on a major EPSRC-funded research project on Crime, Policing and Citizenship (CPC). The motivation was to develop new methods and applications in space-time analytics and emergent network complexity.

Throughout the funding period, CPC has uncovered patterning in crime, policing and citizen perceptions, at a range of spatial and temporal scales. The research team has been avowedly inter-disciplinary, drawing on geoinformatics, crime science, geography and computer science, and the over-arching objective has been to engineer effective solutions to real world crime problems.

This workshop will close the project by presenting the outcomes of the research. It will also provide a forum to discuss the role of Big Data in aspects of life that lie beyond intelligent policing. The workshop will be used to disseminate the findings across policing, government, industry and academia.
