Brent Council is working with IBM to build a predictive model that could allow children most at risk of child exploitation to be identified in advance. This project uses a range of data sources from youth offending services, social care, schools and gang area intelligence. Although in its infancy, it is hoped that this model could use indicators to provide instant intelligence and insight into priority cases; including young people considered to be at a heightened risk, such as missing children and those living in a known gang area.
