Regional Police Collaboration Using GIS and Crime Analysis Dashboards
Track: Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice
Authors: Jason McKinley, Matthew Brown
Police agencies across the nation have been exploring ways to better analyze crime trends and strategically deploy critical police resources. The challenge is in dealing with large volumes of data that are difficult to convert into actionable information. The result: GIS centric dashboards, based on ESRI technology. The City of Ann Arbor, participating in a 90 member consortium, and the San Diego Harbor Police, will highlight how these tools promote data sharing and directed enforcements.
