Agencies across the nation are currently working hard to find ways to limit an officer’s exposure to the COVID-19 virus while continuing to serve the needs of the communities. This includes responding to in-progress events only and driving the community to file online reports for all other incidents. This new approach to law enforcement greatly helps to limit the exposure of officers, however, it creates a true data problem.
Information is key to solving a case, removing a violent offender, and keeping an officer safe from harm. With reporting moving to an online base, law enforcement needs to make greater use of technology and solutions that help them use data to drive investigations and reduce crime.
Discover how technology and information can help law enforcement reduce crime during a global pandemic by providing the following.
- Remote access to critical investigative information from within the department and across the country
- Information and technology available from any web-enabled device, for the entire department, to increase efficiency despite limiting resources
- Powerful visualizations that provide actionable insights, in real-time, to identify crime trends and prevent criminal activity
Remote Access to Critical Information
With many officers working remotely and avoiding in-person investigations whenever possible, law enforcement needs the ability to access critical information at any time and from any location. When solving crimes, every second counts.
With Forensic Logic’s police database software, COPLINK X, your investigators and patrol officers can access relevant, actionable information from any web-based device. The ability to quickly search COPLINK X for leads and suspects helps your officers make more informed decisions and solve crimes more quickly all while limiting an officer’s exposure to COVID-19.
With over 1 billion agency records, COPLINK X holds the most powerful network of law enforcement information in the country. You can access a wide range of data, including court data, evidence, and lab data, NIBIN shell casing reports, mugshots, probation and parole information, warrants, CrimeDex alerts, BOLOs, vehicular data and the universe of Thomson Reuters CLEAR records.
Increase Efficiency Despite Limiting Resources
Social distancing restrictions have created even more difficulties for law enforcement as their resources have become further reduced in an effort to limit officer exposure to the virus. Quick access to relevant information improves situational awareness for law enforcement users at all levels. As a result, law enforcement can collaborate more effectively and solve crimes more quickly. This allows them to not only use current resources more efficiently, solving more crime with few officers on the streets, but it also frees up limited resources to solve other cases and prevent more crime.
COPLINK X’s key performance indicators help agencies conduct more effective statistical analysis across all available data. A collection of geographic information systems, statistical graphs, charting and analytical tools work with the rich database to help agencies leverage their data and better allocate resources.
Power Visualization and Actionable Insights
In addition to finding relevant information, law enforcement needs to be able to quickly make sense of it. That’s why we’ve integrated our powerful search capabilities and COPLINK’s advanced analytics and reporting within COPLINK X.
