Milan police use KeyCrime delia(R) to help end “retrò” crime series

A robber with a taste for antique weaponry was arrested in Milan after a robbery in Via Millelire. The police were forewarned and already on the scene when the 52 year old robber struck thanks to the Police’s VI Mobile Squad and a little help from the software KeyCrime delia®.
With a hoodie and a mask, the 52 year old robber thought each raid was a sure thing. Each time he would study the situation in the pharmacy or supermarket, pretending to be a customer, proceed to the cash register as though to make a purchase and then pull out a replica antique revolver. His age, the old-style revolver and his habit of leaving through the back door (in Italian: “retro”) all led to the investigators pursuing the case to nickname the crime series “retrò”.

Probable Causation Podcast with Giovanni Mastrobuoni on KeyCrime delia®

We were thrilled when Jennifer Doleac’s Probable Causation podcast interviewed Professor Giovanni Mastrobuoni at the end of August because many of the conclusions they reached have profound implications for the world of policing and investigators’ adoption of technology. One in particular is something we’ve been saying from the start: enhancing policing with the right technology should be possible without causing racial bias. We founded KeyCrime to assist investigators in mapping out a specific criminal’s crime series because Enhanced Crime Analysis is one way we believe KeyCrime can help Law Enforcement Agencies to follow the criminal and not just police the area in order to make the world a better and safer place.

La Repubblica: Serial robber caught: he used a prop gun to scare store clerks

A 52-year-old laborer was arrested by the Milan Police on charges of robbing a clothing store in the ‘Coccinelle’ franchise in Corso Genova in Milan. The man, wearing a mask, hat and sunglasses, frightened the saleswoman with a prop gun and stole 200 euros from the cash register, before leaving. Stationed outside, waiting for him, were the policemen of the ‘Hawks’, a group specialized in fighting widespread crime, who were stationed in the area after the analysis of the KeyCrime system, which had identified a robber who always acted using a black canvas bag to stash his hauls.

A glimpse of the (hopefully near-term) future: KeyCrime delia® crime analysis suite

An article by Cesare Parodi and Valentina Sellaroli, reported in Contemporary Criminal Law (6/2019), illustrates its possibilities and legal implications. In fact, predictive software has long been used in various cities around the world. Each has peculiar characteristics, but there is a common trend: they focus on a purely statistical analysis, aimed at indicating the place and time when, most likely, a crime may occur. KeyCrime’s delia® suite, instead of relying on mere statistical analysis and broad-based data collection, evaluates the risk of repeat offenses within a specific crime series based on direct and objective data from that series.
