Officers and administrators frequently spend hours finding and verifying the information they need, often without easy access or even single sign-on.
Although massive amounts of data are available in theory — crime lab data, surveillance data, crash and citation records, jail records, Record Management Systems (RMS), and Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD), and location data for police cars, drones, and watercraft — the effort needed to find, select, and obtain the data they need is too effort-intensive to sustain. The data they could use is effectively locked away.
Hundreds of times per day, they spend massive amounts of time trying to get information that could help them be more proactive and effective — instead of actually being proactive and effective.
Information Builders specializes in breaking down data silos and integrating information. It provides sophisticated master data management (MDM) capabilities to provide a clear, 360-degree view of individuals, even when their information is different in different systems. Data quality capabilities help standardize code sets used by different systems, so law enforcement personnel can easily understand the situation as it pertains to their needs. It functions with every kind of application, and can even integrate data in real-time.
The Information Builders platform is effective in multiple deployment scenarios, for Real-Time Crime Centers, precincts, detectives, agents, and officers on the street.
