Next-Generation Software for Data-Driven Policing: Taking the Real-Time Crime Center to the Street

Federal, state, county, and local law enforcement agencies have vast amounts of data that can be turned into actionable intelligence for proactive deployments and improved crime clearance. Integrating this data and leveraging it for a real-time crime center (RTCC) deployment has proven to be an effective and efficient way to gain a better operational picture of what is happening in the community. Agencies that have deployed a RTCC have better insights into where and when to schedule their officers, a clearer understating of crime trends, and a proactive policing capability that didn’t exist before the RTCC implementation.

While the RTCC concept has been around for some time, we at Information Builders are taking it to the next level by:

  • Recognizing your role in the agency and presenting you with the information that is relevant to your area of responsibility
  • Integrating real-time feeds that provide true operational intelligence, answering the question, "What is happening right now?"
  • Putting the power of a RTCC in the hands of your officers, detectives, and federal agents on the street

Having access to the right information at the right time can be the difference in how an officer responds to any given situation and can shortcut investigative work for detectives and federal agents.

We Recognize You

We understand that law enforcement can be high speed and high stress. Law enforcement professionals often need information immediately, as they are dealing with rapidly evolving emergency situations. Finding the data necessary to enhance officer safety and solve crime can be a difficult task as law enforcement databases are often not connected to each other and, if they are, solutions are built that require officers to utilize multiple drop-downs to hunt and click their way to the information they need.

The Information Builders law enforcement platform is designed not only to integrate disparate systems, but to recognize you as an individual user and bring you the information that is relevant to your area of responsibility without you having to go find it.

Answering the Question: What Is Happening Now?

Providing a common operating picture in real time allows for strategic deployment of resources and efficient response to evolving situations. The Information Builders law enforcement platform brings traditionally disparate IoT and other feeds together into a single portal, providing the ability to see where your officers are in relation to where crime is occurring, set up geo-fences to monitor cameras and personnel during events, automate officer safety alerts, automate case deconfliction, drill down to original reports, leverage predictive policing models, and have situational awareness when new information comes into the system on the persons, places, and things that are of interest to your public safety mission.

The Power of an RTCC on Any Device

Having access to the right information at the right time can be the difference in how an officer responds to any given situation and can shortcut investigative work for detectives and federal agents. Traditionally, the RTCC approach has required a large operations center, where information is collected and pushed out to the field. We’ve taken the step to make our law enforcement platform totally portable, screen responsive, and available on any device from a small mobile phone to a large video wall, giving the operations center personnel and your officers, detectives, command staff, or federal agents the ability to conduct federated searches across multiple databases simultaneously, view crime trends, camera feeds, and officer locations, receive alerts, and most importantly, to have relevant information at their fingertips – when they need it and without delay.

We are taking data-driven policing to the next level by providing a consolidated platform that integrates with existing law enforcement systems, can be used on any device, and is focused on providing value up and down the chain of command. From a large operations center to a single officer on the street, we’ve got you covered!
