NYPD Uses Visualization Technology to Speed up Investigation Process

July 20, 2006  | 

Prochart visualization technology from ABM America is being used operationally at the New York City Police Department’s Real Time Crime Center.

The new, hi-tech crime center is designed to improve crime-fighting effectiveness for serious crimes by taking advantage of latest technologies to mine the vast amount of data collected by the department, unlocking the patterns and trends within. Using Prochart, police analysts are able to view hidden and indirect relationships between incidents and offenders across all New York boroughs, increasing the overall intelligence picture and enabling NYPD to share and act upon the information.

Within seconds, Prochart identifies and graphically displays crime and criminal networks, supplying police with critical information not evident in individual events or reports. By establishing relationships between targets of enquiry, Prochart provides greater results earlier in the investigative process.

Prochart is able to integrate all types of media including pictures and video clips. Images of a specific house, car, or person, including CCTV footage of suspects, can be incorporated into charts to ensure maximum results when the visuals are disseminated to detectives.
