Last week I wrote about the Open Data Institute’s first Immersion Programme on Crime and Justice. I’m series lead for this and part of the role means that I’ll be both encouraging people to take part and supporting those that do.
As a recap, the challenges that we have set are:
How can open data projects be constructed that achieve one of the following:
- increase community involvement with the criminal justice system?
- create further evidence for what are effective interventions for rehabilitation?
- address the rise in personal crime?
An obvious question to ask is why would somebody want to take part in the series?
