Locstat is an innovative crime prevention system that empowers communities to take charge of their own safety.
It is an online service which incorporates crime incident analysis and visualisation in a geospatial environment.
CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies spoke to Locstat founder, Hallam Ford.
With Locstat we have a reporting mechanism, either through a web interface or an app, and it follows a specific taxonomy of reporting.— Hallam Ford, Founder of Locstat
It comes to our data storage system, from there we analyse the data and we visualise the data in a form of a heat map and disseminate back to the community.— Hallam Ford, Founder of Locstat
