Protecting People, Resources and Assets
Local and national agencies use geo-enabled tools to support decision making as part of their responsibilities for homeland security. For example, during major incidents, information can help identify and map damaged infrastructure, affected populations and then be used to coordinate recovery efforts. Historical data can assist in the planning and preparation of response for future events.
Make Connections, Identify Patterns and Solve Crimes
Applying the science of forensics with geographic information can prove invaluable for crime investigation and solving. Additionally, geo-spatial technology solutions can prove vital in providing evidence. An example could be using GPS-recorded information in vehicles to prove the location at the scene of a crime.
Optimize Administration and Daily Operations
Geo-enabled applications are proving vital in modern law enforcement. Their implementation is essential for improving situational awareness, discovering and analyzing crime trends and patterns, and deploying human and other resources more effectively. They give a vital visual representation of actionable information for all involved from the command center to officers on patrol.
For predictive policing, the study of crime activities and mapping of clusters of incidents such as burglaries or other crimes allows the deployment of officers in the areas that are most at risk.
