WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (PRWEB) October 25, 2018
Smart law enforcement agencies across North America are putting the processing, pattern recognition and planning power of AI in their proverbial pockets. Serving up data from Caliber’s industry-leading Online Records Management System (RMS), PredPol helps law enforcement to plan patrol routes and create missions to increase the likelihood that their resources are in the right place at the right time in order to deter crime and reduce victimization.
The partnership combines rich crime and public record data sets made up of crime and victimization location, frequency, and times with a dynamic portable digital project management display solution. Burglaries, traffic accidents, gun violence, drug overdoses and many other events are deterrable. When law enforcement knows where they tend to occur, they can deploy their limited resources strategically.
PredPol believes it's as important to protect privacy and civil rights as it is to prevent crime. They calculate three anonymized data points – crime type, crime location and crime date/time in their predictions. Period. It's also worth remembering that people have cognitive biases. Algorithms don’t. “PredPol is excited to work with Caliber to deliver our predictive policing solution to their client agencies,” said Brian MacDonald, CEO of PredPol. “Our close integration with the Caliber platform allows departments to see the benefits of data-directed patrol quickly and with minimal effort.”
“Caliber’s partnership with PredPol provides our agencies with predictive policing data when and where they need it. We’re thrilled about the partnership and the ability to extend the breadth of data we have been delivering through our OnLine RMS solution by adding the analytical predictive policing information delivered through PredPol,” said Blair Robinson, EVP for Caliber Public Safety.
“Our partnership with Caliber Public Safety for our CAD, RMS, and JMS solutions have proved to be an absolute benefit in fighting crime in our community. With the integration of PredPol as a crime analytical tool, we have been able to predict and head off crime while at the same time collecting valuable data from every aspect of my day to day operations.”
