Project Goal

Catalytic converter thefts have become a scourge for San Bernardino County residents with every law enforcement jurisdiction in the County seeing a dramatic increase in thefts. To help monitor catalytic converter thefts, San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department teamed up with local police departments to create a Catalytic Converter Theft solution that allows all participating jurisdictions to view information related to their catalytic converter thefts in a web browser and allows them to follow and monitor trends in catalytic converter thefts in their neighboring jurisdictions.

Business Problem Solved

Crime and criminals do not stay within administrative boundaries or jurisdictions. The Catalytic Converter Theft solution allows for the sharing of information across jurisdictions to address a common problem, catalytic converter thefts. By sharing the data across Jurisdictions, crime analysts can identify trends across the county rather than their smaller individual jurisdictions. Sharing data across jurisdictions also allow crime analysts to find commonality between cases, such as suspect descriptions, suspect vehicle descriptions, etc.
