Advanced law enforcement analytics puts vital crime information at commanders’ fingertips.

The Criminal Justice Information Center at The Michigan State Police Department (MSPD) serves as a repository for all types of criminal justice information across the entire state. That’s a lot of important data to keep track of, and the MSPD needed an efficient and easy way to retrieve that information from its system.

To address this need, the MSPD turned to Information Builders, working with the company to build a framework and specific queries that allowed all users to easily access important information. The command staff now has access to a dashboard which puts critical information at the staff’s fingertips at any given time. Accessibility is determined by role and responsibilities to ensure that the right employees have access to the right information.

Since working with Information Builders, the MSPD’s staff is more aware of the information being reported and thus has a better knowledge of law enforcement efforts around the state. The MSPD team knows that Information Builders is there for them every step of the way and is dedicated to helping them fight crime throughout the state of Michigan. But don’t take our word for it! Check out the above link to hear directly from Katie Bower, assistant division director of the Criminal Justice Information Center, about why Information Builders is a valued and trusted partner of the MSPD.

We are honored that MSPD is part of our “I Know” customer success series. To hear more on their story and others’ stories, please read on.
