Reid Wilson standing outdoors in front of sign: Detroit Public Safety HQU-M alum Reid Wilson was selected as the first Detroit Data Fellow and will spend the next two years helping the Detroit Police Department understand crime patterns in real time. The program is part of a universitywide effort to engage with the city, its leaders, and residents to create a sustainable impact for a better future. Fellows participate in a weeklong data analysis boot camp on campus to prepare and each is assigned a U-M faculty mentor. The program builds on the Ford School’s Education Policy Initiative expertise in data mining and quantitative analysis.
