Event description

Description

The Sheffield Data Science Forum is back this month with a talk from Jamie Smith of South Yorkshire Police.

Data, Policing and Analysis: challenges and opportunities

Policing data and official statistics have subtle differences that cause an interesting set of challenges for interpretation and analysis. In South Yorkshire Police we are currently on a journey into looking at what more sophisticated data analysis can tell us about 21st-century policing demands and this talk will detail some of the challenges faced and where we have got to so far.
