Next-generation law enforcement analytics.

Build a safer, more efficient force with data and analytics

 

Law enforcement is a high-risk job – data and analytics should help make it safer, not add complexity. ibi acts as a force multiplier, supporting all law enforcement needs of command staff, detectives, and officers on the street, to aiding proactive deployments and crime clearance. With data-driven analytics that strategically break down information into actionable insights, law enforcement professionals across departments can gain end-to-end visibility into all daily operations.

How we help

Responsive and predictive policing

 

Process a wealth of crime data – from criminal records management systems to computer-aided dispatch systems and beyond – to create predictive analytics that help allocate resources and provide proactive insights that prevent incidents before they occur.

Law enforcement analytics

 

This level of analytics serves the necessary, relevant information to different types of users. For example, police officers aren’t data analysts – and they shouldn’t be. Their ability to observe and react to situations is a critical part of their service, and it’s more important than staring at numbers. Law enforcement analytics lend police officers a situational awareness that enables improved decision-making and prioritization.

Data-driven operations

 

Tap into a comprehensive and easily digested view of crucial data – offenders, employees, incidents, and other information – to build a data-driven law enforcement operation that effectively responds to community needs.

Data is crucial to modern policing.

 

Law enforcement is hard enough without messy and siloed data. In this ebook, we walk through common challenges and how data ecosystems should be managed for more effective policing.

 

  • Improve your team’s safety with strategic data deployment
  • Integrate reliable, real-time systems into your operations
  • Construct a strong information technology foundation

Operationalizing Data and Analytics for Law Enforcement

York Regional Police

2,200 Sworn and unsworn members of the YRP police force.
1,750 Square kilometers bordering the city of Toronto protected by that force.
15 seconds To verify and demonstrate where the greatest demands for policing services take place.

The Challenge

 

Formed in 1971 – through the consolidation of 14 separate municipal police forces, York Regional Police has been amassing valuable data for years. To support data-driven decision-making, information had to be manually aggregated and de-conflicted to answer questions about how, when, where, and why police assets were deployed. The challenge was to bring order to York Regional Police’s siloed structured and unstructured data, before harnessing that data for optimal use in strategic planning, performance management, and operational analysis.

This platform is transforming the way we conduct frontline operations. It allows our frontline officers to receive and digest information in a meaningful way, and ensures that we have the right information to strategically deploy our resources.”

The Results

YRP’s Business Intelligence Unit worked with ibi to apply law enforcement data to the agency’s Real-Time Operations Center (RTOC). The solution that emerged was a data warehouse that wove together data across all departments. The warehouse became the foundation for a cohesive analytic environment.

Increased efficiency

Better analytical applications improved results in crime prevention, resource allocation, worker wellness, and organizational performance. And with more efficient use of resources and assets, York has experienced dramatic reductions in time spent collating disparate data and delivering actionable policing.

Quantified outcomes

ibi has helped YRP to quantify the cost of policing and prosecuting various types of crimes, as well as to calculate the time and resources being devoted to noncriminal activity, thus maximizing efficiency of its detectives and patrol officers.

Crime prevention

Ibi helped York leverage its data to detect, suppress, and prevent crime, turning raw data into actionable intelligence.

A powerful data warehouse

Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office

20% Fewer traffic accidents
67% Less fuel used by civil process servers
200 hrs Manual work time saved producing crime reports
1 year For productivity gains to pay for the cost of new system

The Challenge

 

Every month, each department of the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office spent from 100 to 200 hours to collect and compile the CompStat reports used to monitor crime trends across the 19 communities that comprise Wisconsin’s largest county. Workers had to combine data from systems that tracked enforcement activity, officer dispatch, transit schedules, jail occupants, staff schedules, and certain elements of sensitive material in its criminal justice information system. They also had to incorporate information kept in spreadsheets and in paper log files.

Previously, when we were trying to solve recurring crimes such as carjackings and armed robberies we had to query five or six different systems. Now, we can see information from all the systems at once to find a person’s traffic stops, arrests, and jail visits, along with known associates, visitors, phone numbers, and much more.”

The Results

The platform features dashboards for each sheriff-office division, with key performance metrics and incident reports displayed on maps. The system also facilities real-time, two-way exchange of information with other government and law-enforcement agencies.

Improved efficiency

Software now calculates the most efficient route for officers assigned to civil process service. Fuel costs are down by 67% and officers have more time to research the people they’re trying to find. First-try success is up to 78%.

Help solving difficult cases

Detectives now have instant access to information about incidents and suspects from multiple agencies. And they now receive real-time alerts whenever potential new clues are identified, such as when a person who may be relevant to a case enters the county jail.

Disaster preparations

An emergency management application presents a detailed picture of conditions around the county, drawing information from a wide range of sources, including local weather radar and transportation traffic monitoring.
