Analysis of police patrolling strategies

Huanfa awarded 2018 Roger Tomlinson Prize

The 2018 Roger Tomlinson Prize for the best GIS-based PhD dissertation at UCL has been awarded to Huanfa Chen, of the UCL Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering, for his thesis, “Developing Police Patrolling Strategies Based on the Urban Street Network”, and his associated published work.

The Prize was established in 2016 by Jack Dangermond, Founder and President of Esri, Inc, in honour of one of UCL Department of Geography’s most famous postgraduates and a key actor in the global development of geographic information systems and science.

This year’s award attracted a competitive and interdisciplinary field. The panel were impressed by Huanfa’s timely development of past research, reflecting the “Crime, Policing and Citizenship” EPSRC theme led by his supervisor, Professor Tao Cheng, supported by the UCL Departments of Geography, Computer Science and Crime Science.

Huanfa Chen is now a Teaching Fellow in Spatial Data Science and Quantitative Methods in the UCL Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis.
