Atlanta Police Testing Crime Predictive Technology

Pred Pol is supposed to help officer predict where crimes will be committed


ATLANTA — The Atlanta Police Department is showing off new technology intended to help officers predict where criminals will strike next.

"It's about deterring crime. We want it to stop before it happens," Lt. LeAnn Browning told Channel 2's Ryan Young. 

The system is called Pred Pol, and Atlanta's Police Chief George Turner said he believes it helps push the city to the forefront of new technology.
