Repeat and Near Repeat Analysis is a configuration of ArcGIS Desktop that can be used by law enforcement agencies to identify repeat and near repeat victimization patterns of a particular crime type within a specified time frame and geographic area. As patterns are identified, prediction zones can be created and used for crime mitigation activities.

Repeat and Near Repeat Analysis leverages extensive research on predictive mapping theory in the law enforcement community and incorporates these theories in to a Crime Analysis toolbox that supports predictive policing efforts across an entire community.
