This talk argues for the urgent integration of computationally intensive disciplines such engineering, computing science, operations management and mathematics with the study of crime and deviance.  At the School of Criminology, at Simon Fraser University (near Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada), our Institute for Canadian Urban Research Studies (ICURS) employs what we call “computational criminology” to study distributions of crime in the built environment.  A significant aspect of our work requires the spatio-temporal analysis of crime in cities and towns.   Access to quality crime and disorder databases are essential to this process, but often these are poorly integrated, with only a handful of sources being truly interoperable in a meaningful way.  Our lab (ICURS) works with the federal police service, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and various municipal (metropolitan) police agencies, such as the Vancouver Police Department (VPD) and has successfully integrated nearly six million crime event records.  We have a wealth of data, but require the best scientific practices to mine it effectively, and to develop simulations to forecast (model) ever shifting crime patterns and to develop efficient policing strategies to help our enforcement partners maintain and improve public safety.  A range of connections between criminology and operations research are explored, and future collaborations between ICURS and the Universidad de Chile and CEAMOS are discussed.
