Crime Profiler Enables Map Based Real Time Crime Analysis

Pitney Bowes MapInfo : 04 August, 2010  (New Product)
MapInfo Crime Profiler has been released by Pitney Bowes for use by police as an intelligence tool for analysing crime patterns and trends
Pitney Bowes Business Insight has announced MapInfo Crime Profiler, a flexible solution for real-time identification and analysis of crime patterns and trends. Armed with this intelligence, law enforcement agencies can more effectively deploy resources and assist detectives in identifying and apprehending suspects.

A new module for Pitney Bowes Business Insight's MapInfo Professional v10.5, MapInfo Crime Profiler solution is accessible from the software's main menu bar and provides the user with a wide range of crime analysis tools. Its core functions include hotspot analysis, interactive analytical investigation and temporal analysis. The solution's highly visual and interactive charting and graphing capabilities enable law enforcement agencies to clearly map and analyze crime patterns in order to make more informed crime analysis and enforcement decisions.

"Police forces, emergency services and other organizations engaged in making communities safer, are under increased pressure to improve services, respond faster and achieve more positive results," said Manny San Pedro, executive director at MDSP Consultants. "MapInfo Crime Profiler empowers users to better protect citizens by effectively leveraging crime data to eliminate the randomness from patrols. By reviewing real-time crime data, agencies can improve efficiencies, reduce crime rates and provide the highest level of protection for their communities."

Crime Profiler solution automates much of the statistical legwork behind crime analysis with new data combinations and overlays, and advanced visualization capabilities and analysis techniques, allowing agencies to efficiently evaluate operations and formulate crime prevention strategies. For example, law enforcement organizations can locate crime hot spots and uncover fraudulent activity clustered around a specific location, such as connected residences, non-existent business addresses and altered ATMs.

"MapInfo Crime Profiler equips law enforcement professionals with the mission-critical abilities to quickly identify crime problems, evaluate operations and formulate crime prevention strategies," said Ian Broadbent, business development manager Policing and Public Safety EMEA at Pitney Bowes Business Insight. "MapInfo Crime Profiler has an intuitive dashboard interface to help users perform analyses more quickly and easily. In turn, law enforcement agencies are able to better understand crime data and make intelligent decisions on where to deploy resources, which is critical for protecting communities and fighting crime."

MapInfo Crime Profiler provides a single, ready-to-use solution for applying common operations and toolkits to enable investigative or research-based crime analysis. It offers a number of features designed to improve the way crime analysis data is analyzed and presented across a police agency, including:

* Immediate Access to Data—With MapInfo Crime Profiler solution, users can select and work with subsets of specific crime data, by series, type, time, locale or other characteristics and then perform real-time "what-if" analysis on the data.

* Ease of Use—Easy to use and interactive hotspot map creations in MapInfo Crime Profiler solution instantly sees how different settings can change the representation of the data.

* Dynamic Mapping—Mapping functionality allows users to work with map data in a wide variety of formats and types, including aerial photography, street maps, demographics and segmentation maps.

* Visualization and Analysis—Ability to pinpoint proximity analysis of crimes to known offenders or risk factors and define force boundaries such as beats and patrol areas.
