Hot spots policing reduces crime. It involves the targeted deployment of police patrols to areas where crime is known to concentrate. For hot spots policing to be effective it requires a detailed analysis of the specific locations where crime concentrates and when these hot spots occur. In this presentation I will start by talking about the evidence from a range of studies on the impact of hot spots policing, with most examples of its effectiveness being from the USA, UK and Australia. Then, I will describe a hot spots policing programme in Montevideo, Uruguay, with details about the analysis that was conducted that resulted in the creation of this programme, details about the way the patrols were organised and their impact.
I will then describe how the programme in Uruguay has inspired similar programmes in Argentina and Brazil. Next I will describe results from new research that has developed an automated approach to create hot spots policing patrol routes and whether the routes designed are better than those designed manually. I will then return to examples from the UK where since 2021/22 hot spots policing has been adopted by police in all cities in England and Wales to reduce violence that takes place in a public setting. This will include details about the analysis involved in measuring the impact of the patrols and examples of the patrols impact. I will finish by describing some issues with hot spots policing and how further analysis can identify the conditions that cause crime to concentrate, which in turn can identify opportunities for further reductions in crime in crime hot spots.

plays a constantly growing role in the field of policing. Often there is a lack of knowledge, experience, education and networking opportunities.
There are some crime analyst associations in the world, all working to assist their members, but until now there has been nothing similar in Europe.
This is the reason why we set up the European Association of Crime Analysts and hope that you all will actively participate.
We are also proud to present the European Forensic Institute (EFI) as our educational institution. In the near future the EFI will extend their program with a Masters course in Cyber Security, Digital Forensics and Crime Analysis, supported by our association.
Our newest partner is
