With a vision to create a single, force-wide GIS solution, Strathclyde Police deployed Esri’s ArcGIS Server and integrated it with its existing Command and Control system. The force now has better quality intelligence about local crime, which it can use to help make more effective use of police resources.
Read the case study for information on how:
- ArcGIS has been used to identify hot spots for knife crime enabling police to target these areas, specifically equipped with metal detectors, to help reduce violent attacks.
- ArcGIS draws on information from the Command and Control system to reveal deeper insight into crime, which can be shared with partners.
- In the Air Support Unit, for example, ArcGIS improves police efficiency, enabling surveillance flights to be conducted more quickly and discretely.
"They can see the distribution of crime data across divisions is used by senior officers when deciding how and where to allocate police resources most appropriately."
