We now have Algorithms to Predict Police Misconduct
"...Many police departments have early warning systems — software that
tracks each officer’s performance and aims to forecast potential
problems. The systems identify officers with troubling patterns of
behavior, allowing superiors to monitor these cops more closely or
intervene and send them to counseling.
...a mixed group of graduate and undergraduate students working together at
the University of Chicago with backgrounds in statistics, programming,
economics and related disciplines, are trying to build a better kind of
early warning system. They began their task last summer with a request
from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department: Predict when police
officers would participate in adverse interactions with civilians."
