Does the government have a crime database?

While people cannot be convicted for crimes they have not committed, a new government database will attempt to target where crimes might occur. Armed with this knowledge, the government may try to adopt policies  and take measures to prevent crimes from occurring.

The crime database is currently being compiled. When it is complete, it will likely include personal information about all people who have committed a crime. This undertaking will require a compilation of the thousands of information from the thousands of existing crime databases across the United States.

Many critics of the crime database fear that it will encroach on people’s future liberties. They believe that the government will unfairly target former criminals who may not be a real threat to causing a crime.
