Online Crime Intelligence Technology
Crime prevention, detection and conviction depends on good intelligence. With an active Crime Reduction Partnership it is possible to operate an intelligence database that all the partnership members can contribute to and benefit from. These provide everything from profiles of individual offenders to identifying hot spots and predicting crime patterns and analyses of the impact of local initiatives, as well as allowing for easy distribution of information via email.
It is important that any such database and those who use it comply with legislation and confidentiality which will require some basic training and an excellent working relationship with the local Police. See www.acis.me.uk or www.facewatch.co.uk for more information.
