Intelligence-Led Policing: What Was the Future is Now Here

Police forces across the nation are now using intelligence-led policing software systems to perform crime analysis and crime mapping to deter and, ultimately, reduce criminal activity. This law enforcement technology analyzes real-time data and delivers that information at a high speed to police officers on patrol. Because of this, they are able to collaborate much more efficiently through the sharing of bulletins, map visualizations, real-time data, and blogs.

Having all available information to these officers quickly helps them to solve crimes faster, which, in effect, deters crime. Real-time data is the most prominent feature that provides the most benefits to law enforcement agencies that decide to embrace this innovative technology. The easily accessible sharing of information enables officers to solve crimes faster by arming them with the most relevant information quickly.

These intelligence-led systems are not intended to replace solid police work and good, old-fashioned police intuition. But they are, however, a perfect complement to a cop’s gut feelings and street sense, and data from the technology, combined with dedicated cops, equals results for police departments. This is because giving law enforcement officers the real-time crime data to accurately pinpoint crimes, patterns, and incidents enhance their ability to fight crime faster and more efficiently.
