QiSOFT enhances police software
Enhancements have been announced to QiSOFT’s POLICEintel program, the real-time intelligence web-based sharing portal for data-driven crime fighting.
The core elements of the program remain, particularly the shift-to-shift information sharing tool, the Sergeant’s Desk Report. New to the program are modules for retail crime prevention: Retail Stop Loss and for citizen reporting of suspicious activity: iWatch. The iWatch program for citizen involvement started in L.A. and is now in use in other cities.
This allows the user to provide a narrative of suspicious activity directly to the area police department for officer response. This programme can be used as a stand alone module or integrated into POLICEintel. RetailStop Loss is currently being field tested in Savannah, Ga. Dedicated to stopping shoplifters, this program makes available to the merchant details of known shoplifters with pictures and profile information. POLICEintel is all about harnessing crime information, background events, criminals and police activity and placing this in its correct geographical and time context.
Crime reports, patterns, likely suspects, criminal profiles, pictures and video are all available, with interactive maps to pinpoint critical locations. Being a web based portal, information from different sources is easily assimilated and presented to the law enforcement officer. Via the external feeds feature, neighbouring agencies can instantly share and exchange critical intelligence information. This information is available 24/7 and can be securely accessed from any computer or mobile device with Internet access.
