Burglary prediction for the municipality of Utrecht

Working with Xomnia has given our project a kick-start. We value their transparent and cooperative way of working.

For the municipality of Utrecht, Xomnia has built a model that predicts the occurrence of burglaries in each district of Utrecht for a given week. From the date and time of the burglary, we derived weather conditions, holidays and special events. Sociodemographic statistics of the neighborhoods were also accounted for. We additionally included certain points of interest, such as street lights, cameras, trees, parks and large garbage containers. The Burglary Predictor built by Xomnia enables the municipality of Utrecht to prevent burglaries by data-driven decision making.
