Welcome to the data science blog of the National Policing Institute (NPI)! In this space, we will be posting content that highlights some of the work done by the data science team at NPI. Much of the research and analyses done by our team ends up being public, but not often in a format that is oriented for data scientists or other quantitative researchers. This platform will allow the data science team to focus on the aspects of our work that excite us, or highlight things that we think are interesting, but maybe don’t fit into the official deliverables of our projects.
At this stage, we’re still a small group, so updates will be somewhat infrequent. As our team grows, we hope to increase the frequency of the content published here, but our aim is to ensure that the quality is high from day one.
