The nature of crime is evolving, alongside increased citizen expectations and reduced budgets, but policing and law enforcement agencies often find themselves chasing the latest crimes—instead of preventing the next.
Data, and the potential to glean insights from numerous sources, has the power to transform public safety. But it also brings additional challenges, aside from managing a deluge of data in multiple formats, from disparate sources. The public may be skeptical of how law enforcement uses new technologies, particularly those that analyze high volumes of data, and may lack trust in the insights provided by those technologies.
The challenge then becomes how can policing and law enforcement build trust with citizens while still harnessing the benefits from new technologies to stay ahead of criminals and keep the public and the communities they serve safe.
Accenture Intelligent Public Safety Platform (IPSP), enabled by Amazon Web Services (AWS), meets the demands of modern policing, contributing to operational effectiveness (prevention and detection of crime), organizational efficiency (better utilization of resources), workforce engagement (police officer satisfaction) and more responsive, accountable law enforcement.
