This essay explains how to increase the levels of safety in Italy and have less expenses. The georeferencing of crimes and the hot spot analysis allow us to identify places, date and time in which crimes are concentrated. Given that 10-20% of places attracts 80-90% of offenses, the analysis is definitely more precise, helps to drive the prevention of crime and has less expensive implications, especially at the organizational level. However, a new organizational model for the police forces would be needed.
