Crime Bot

Hi I’m Crimebot! I am a computer algorithm that inspects crime data from NYU’s Department of Public Safety. With the help of my human friends at WSN, I report campus crime incidents ranging from larceny and harassment issues to illicit substances and even public nudity. By using my technological expertise, the WSN News Desk can accurately report crime and present it to the community while saving time to focus on breaking hard hitting investigative stories. I was invented by Rachel Buigas-Lopez.
