News: NIJ Grant Enables Partnership with 6 PDs Nationwide to Deploy RTM 

RCPS specializes in applying geospatial technologies to scholarly

research, and offers a multi-disciplinary approach to the academic

study and practical application of ways in which democratic societies

can effectively address crime, terrorism and other threats to public security.

What is RTM? Risk Terrain Modeling is an analytical technique that facilitates the examination of multiple datasets that share geography as a common denominator. It 'paints a picture' onto a digital map of selected events that are statistically likely to occur in areas with similar conditions.
