CCL Solutions Group Ltd will be demonstrating how law enforcement can use social media monitoring and intelligence tools to track events as they unfold, detect issues and respond to criminal activity in real time, at the UK's first international social media law enforcement conference.

Social media is an important source of real time information and intelligence for law enforcement. But the sheer volume of data and variety of sources can be a challenge.

CCL Solutions Group Ltd ( has partnered with Signal to offer UK law enforcement a social media monitoring and intelligence solution that enables investigators to track events as they unfold via social media, detect issues and respond to criminal activity in real time, all from one easy to use platform (

‘Our aim with Signal is to ensure that officers have the right tools for their needs – in this case, enabling them to make the most of social media intelligence, whether as an investigative or consultative tool. There is a lot of noise to wade through. A tool like Signal can help investigators to filter through that noise and target the real time information they need,’ explained Andrew Krauze, managing director at CCL.

Used by police forces in New Zealand and tested in the UK during the London riots and Olympics, Signal is now available to UK forces exclusively from CCL.

‘CCL is delighted to be supporting this event, and we will be demonstrating Signal throughout the conference, highlighting how law enforcement can easily incorporate social media intelligence into their existing practices,’ added Andrew.

The presentation of Signal will be delivered by Stuart Hyde QPM, Director of Solutions at CCL, and Rob Savage, Civil E-Disclosure and Digital Forensics Manager at CCL. Stuart said ‘Signal is a major contribution towards detecting and preventing crime as well as monitoring substantial events or incidents. I look forward to the opportunity to share this tool with operational officers’.

The three day SMILE (Social Media, the Internet and Law Enforcement) conference is taking place at Tally Ho!, Birmingham between 9-11 September (
