City of Warner Robins
Citizen Safety Digital Twin for Community Resilience
This community-research project will develop and test a Citizen Safety Digital Twin for Community Resilience in the City of Warner Robins. This will be accomplished through integration of a dynamic License Plate Reader solution with current police department investigation practices, including installing new License Plate Reader cameras and exploiting new data streams. The team will build on previous work to refine an interface that enables the police department to visualize where crimes are predicted to occur and suggest placement of License Plate Readers to detect them. The team, including faculty researchers from Georgia Tech and Middle Georgia State University will engage closely with the community and key stakeholders and collect and analyze direct feedback from community members about the system. This project will help Warner Robins to maximize both deterrence and detection, with the aim of lowering crime rates across the city.
