Pre-cog and stats

A cool article here on a group predicting the place/time when crime is going to happen. It looks like they are using a Poisson process. They liken it to predicting the after shocks of an earthquake. More details on the math behind the pre-cog software can be found here. I wonder what their prediction accuracy is?  Thanks to Rafa for pointing the link out.
