BeatMaps: Informing decisions, focusing resources

AJYWKW

The public safety community has never been under more pressure. For the Police Service and their partners, this means delivering substantial savings whilst continuing to increase community confidence, detect and prevent crime and protect those who are vulnerable.
Making the most of the wide range of information now being collected and effectively sharing this understanding is a key factor in meeting these needs. This understanding informs decisions for officers, guides local awareness and prevention campaigns, helps more accurately profile demand and therefore target limited resources more effectively.

BeatMaps is an innovative software capability that enables Police Forces and other agencies to access and query up-to-date crime data and many other sources of local information, on demand, via the secure intranet within their organisation. A proven solution is already in use within UK policing; officers can now easily gain a clear picture of crime, ASB and associated information at any location, both by place and time, enabling them to make more informed decisions on where to focus effort and resources for best effect.
