The Ventura County sheriff’s office in California has selected Wynyard Group‘s crime analytics and informant management software to facilitate situational awareness and officer safety as part of intelligence-led policing initiatives.
Wynyard said Tuesday its technology works to combine data from multiple sources, analyze the data to generate actionable intelligence such as crime trends and relay the information to police officers to inform their decisions.
“We set out to modernize the way we look at information and had very specific platform requirements,” said Capt. Bill Schierman of the Ventura County sheriff's office.
“It had to be very user-friendly, provide real-time COMPSTAT information, exponentially cut down the time it took investigators to retrieve information and give patrol units the ability to conduct quick location threat assessments while responding to calls.”
Wynyard’s software works to deliver information dashboards from the data received to help commanders and officers respond to crimes, incidents and events.
The company added that the project aims to allow dispatchers, investigators, patrol officers, detention personnel and analysts to access information relevant to specific incidents and find connections between suspects, addresses, vehicles, phones, guns and previous incidents.
