Reducing Crime through Data Led Policing
Transcript of Reducing Crime through Data Led Policing
Lane County has one of the leanest public safety systems in the state and has struggled with a pervasive property crimes problem for more than a decade. EPD's new Crime Initiative Strategy - Data Led Policing - has been making an impact. It uses crime data and heavy inter-agency collaboration to get results.
Eugene Police officers make twice as many arrests as the national average and about a third more than the average in Oregon.
292 Employees -
Average Calls Dispatched Daily - 300
25,000 Criminal Cases Handled Annually
We are operating within a system that has degraded within the past 20 years, allowing people committing crime to evade accountability.
Many variables affect the jail bed capacity comparisons: Our resource levels, crime trends, national resourcing of law enforcement. It is possible for our national rank to improve even as our circumstance worsens.
What gets prosecuted is a function of the offense, the offender, the community risk associated with the current offense, and other considerations.
EPD re-engineered the way it deploys and dispatches officers, detectives, crime prevention specialist and other staff so they are more effectively focusing their energies on chronic crime and repeat offenders in an orchestrated effort to reduce crime.
This requires a collaborative relationship with prosecution and corrections officials, as well as with the public and businesses.
Eugene Police personnel were re-staffed to a model that projects their efforts directly in those neighborhoods where crime is occurring. The initiative’s pre-emptive and preventive approach is a form of community policing geared toward making it more difficult to victimize people in Eugene.

The Crime Analysis Unit
CAU helps keep the department and partnering agencies informed of local, regional and national trends and issues involving crimes and police practices.
Police are provided information on a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual bases. On average, each month 80 routine reports and approximately 40 special request reports are completed.
These include crime statistics citywide and by neighborhood or down to a specific address, information to determine a specific crime pattern for a set of crimes, maps that show crimes by neighborhood and citywide, and a wide variety of other information.
The crime analyst's duties and responsibilities include providing analytical assistance to the Patrol and Investigations Divisions as well as other department managers.
The Pawn Program is also part of this team.
In 2006, Lane County adopted an ordinance which required all pawn and second-hand stores to report their transactions...
