Precrime kind of exists.

Various police departments have found that by predicting where trouble is most likely to happen and putting patrols in that area at that time, it generally doesn't. Just the presence of police is enough to disrupt criminal behaviour in most cases

Unfortunately this doesn't get recorded as arrests so isn't called a success by politicians who "must get tough on crime"
