Focusing on the Dutch tools SyRI and CAS, this paper describes predictive policing against the background of the broader development toward a pre-crime society, the accompanying culture of control and the new penal logic it gives rise to. It will explain the risks associated with the risk assessments predictive policing tools provide and end with the recommendation to use predictive policing not only for police deployment, but also to target problem-oriented responses to crime to the right persons and places.
