Track: Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice
Authors: Michelle Bello, Johnell Olsson
The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office operates the only adult detention facility for pretrial detainees and sentenced misdemeanants within the county. The agency needed to optimize facility and population management, as well as improve staff and inmate safety. The WCSO implemented a solution to visualize and analyze inmate location, gang affiliation, suicide risk, and criminal activity. This solution demonstrates a next generation platform for facility management and proactive security measures.
