Las Vegas PD deploys IBM analytics software (with related video)
IBM is working with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to help improve the city's public safety and secure information sharing with the agency's regional partners. IBM's i2 crime analytics software will enable LVMPD officers to accelerate their investigations by enabling them to make non-obvious connections based on information that was previously spread across the department.
Departments that use the solution, COPLINK, can form information sharing agreements across the state and with other states and jurisdictions that also use COPLINK.
One component of the deployment is COPLINK Analysis Search that provides crime analysts with the ability to access and analyze data housed in COPLINK from Analyst's Notebook. Since LVMPD has used i2's Analyst's Notebook and iBase for more than 10 years, the addition of COPLINK further enriches the capacity to not only generate leads in solving crimes, but also use existing data in making non-obvious connections between people, places and other entities, including mobile devices, phone records and vehicles.
COPLINK can complement IBM's Intelligent Operations Center for Smarter Cities, which will allow cities to use information and analytics to make smarter and more timely decisions, helping local leaders manage a spectrum of events, both planned and unplanned, such as deploying water maintenance crews to repair pumps before they break, alerting fire crews to broken fire hydrants at an emergency scene, or anticipating traffic congestion and preparing redirection scenarios.
