First U-M data fellow helps Detroit Police analyze crime patterns

U-M alum Reid Wilson was selected as the first Detroit Data Fellow and will spend the next two years analyzing Detroit Police Department data to help understand crime patterns in real time.

Wilson, who earned a master’s degree in public policy from U-M’s Ford School of Public Policy in 2015, will be joined by as many as four additional fellows as part of the first group.

The program is a two-year, full-time, postgraduate fellowship during which participants work with a specific city agency. It’s part of a broader university wide effort to engage with the city, its leaders and residents to create a sustainable impact for a better future.
