The Emergence of the Real Time Crime Center
Effective modern crime prevention and response uses data from a wide array of sources: video inputs, sensors, alarms, smartphones, social media, crime databases, call records, and more. The challenge for law enforcement agencies is the need to take all of this data and make it actionable. Though there is a vast amount of information available, it is only helpful if there is a quick way to interpret and share meaningful data in real-time to make decisions that affect public safety. As much more information becomes available in real time, the responsibility to utilize it efficiently increases.
Though the exact definition can vary from district to district, in essence an RTCC is a centralized technology center that aims to give law enforcement real time data that can be used to both stop unfolding crimes and identify overall patterns to enable future prevention.
Real time crime centers enable proactive policing by combining forces, utilizing the latest technology for data gathering, and displaying information on a dispatch video wall where all operators in the room can view and share the information instantly. Instead of all the data sources remaining in individual silos, requiring a lot of effort and time to combine and analyze, it is instead shared from a central operating location. This allows for instantaneous communication and collaboration, ultimately producing the greatest chance for an effective response.
A successful RTCC requires the latest public safety applications in combination with state-of-the-art video wall integration and ergonomically-designed dispatch console furniture that can withstand the rigors of constant use. Working with Constant Technologies for the operations center design, mission critical audiovisual integration, and command center consoles will provide your RTCC with the strong bones it needs to support an active force using innovative data applications to improve public safety.
