1/28/23 – "Crime Prevention with Risk Terrain Modeling Workshop"

Date: January 28, 2023
Time: 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Location: Governors State University

RTM is risk assessment for places. It diagnoses crime patterns. It identifies environmental conditions that contribute to crime problems. RTM drives decision-making and action for public safety.

This interactive workshop was designed for everyone, without any previous experience or background.

We discussed how to use RTM for data analysis, resource deployments, prevention, and Data-Informed Community Engagement (DICE). Guests learned how RTM works, reviewed case studies, and gained practical insights and tips to take home for implementation.
