Kuala Lumpur, 24 April 2014 – International University of Malaya-Wales (IUMW) is doing its part in crime prevention effort by working hand-in-hand with Malaysian Community Crime Care (MCCC) in a programme aimed at identifying the root of ill social behaviours.
This initiative will be spear-headed by developing an information system that will make use of the ‘big data‘ based information system that will digest data and provide accurate, unbiased view of the highest probability of crime.
This will enable the relevant authorities to more effectively predict and prevent crime by managing numerous data types and using advanced real-rtime analytics designed to transform data into insights.
According to Prof Dr Hamzah A Rahman, President/CEO of IUMW, “crime solving and prevention challenges today are becoming increasingly complex and require a new approach to the management of information. At IUMW’s Faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, we have the expertise and technology to collect, integrate and analyse the data available and use them to identify emerging threats in order to anticipate and pre-empt criminal activities”.
As part of its social responsibility, IUMW’s pool of experts at the Faculty of Health and Social Science will also be working together with MCCC to implement joint activities in relation to crime care, education and research projects. IUMW is also lending its expertise in psychological and counseling support mainly to school students in crime prevention field.
