Well, the Fort Lauderdale Police Department isn’t using an oracle yet, but it is getting one step closer to Minority Report-style crime predicting. The department has become the latest agency to use big data analytics and data mining to prevent crime by staying one step ahead of criminals.

The new projects will use pattern recognition and anomaly detection tech on existing records like 911 calls, crime records, and building permit activity.
