Project Goal

Our goal is to streamline the amount of time it takes from incident to arrest through the use of various applications that leverage location, timely metrics, and combining multiple, crime related datasets into single, easy to access applications.

Business Problem Solved

Accessing information about incidents used to involve logging into a dated record management system and trying to create linkages between arrest tables, known associates of certain incidents, addresses of associated incidents, etc. The process was/is clumsy and takes a lot of time. Additionally, it required detectives and officers to take addresses and enter them into google maps in order to get an idea about the spatial distribution of something like a crime spree. Now, through the use of ArcGIS Enterprise and applications like Operations Dashboards or ArcGIS Web AppBuilder, users can quickly access any applications without needing to sign in. Plus, all of that information is now in one place and in the case of the Property Crimes Leads Generator app, for example, detectives in the property crimes unit can get a quick idea of tons of different but associated datasets around an area of interest in a fraction of the time.
