Read the March 2023 Police Chief magazine article where Assistant Chief James Nolette of the Fayetteville (NC) Police Department discusses the role of Risk Terrain Modeling (RTM) for policing and crime prevention.

Lots of good analogies, detailed case studies for crime risk reduction, and command-level management insights. An important read for police officers of all ranks.

"Risk terrain modeling closes the gap by establishing factors and evaluating locations to explain why crime is successful or prolific in certain spots."

"At its core, RTM is a community-based empowerment tool that allows the police to work with community members and nonprofit organizations to keep risk factors from returning."

"RTM takes crime from just a victim and suspect relationship and adds what all senior police officers know -- location and setting matter"
