Dr. Sean Malinowski, a Senior Fellow with LIU’s Homeland Security Management Institute, earned widespread media attention recently after being quoted in a Homeland Security News Wire article titled “LAPD to rely solely on computers to fight crime.” As a captain with the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and one of the nation’s leading experts in the emerging field of predictive analytics in policing, Dr. Malinowski is spearheading a three-month examination of the exclusive use of computers to analyze past crimes and predict where future crimes will occur in selected areas of Los Angeles, California. Dr. Malinowski is commanding officer of LAPD’s Foothill Patrol Division and the former assistant commanding officer of the LAPD’s Regional Crime Center who helped the agency – the third-largest police department in the U.S. – design its new Emergency Operations Center. An accomplished police officer, teacher, author and researcher at the national and global levels, he is one of the Homeland Security Management Institute’s original faculty members, focusing on domestic and international terrorism.
