Law enforcement agencies are seeing a greater need for building real-time, integrated intelligence capabilities in an increasingly digital environment. In fact, most policing agencies will operate or participate in some form of real-time crime center in the very near future.

With increased pressure from both the public and stakeholders to improve response with less funding and less resources, many are strategically investing in integrated technology capabilities that enable intelligence-led policing. Integrated technology systems enhance the ability of police agencies to respond to incidents by providing information in one operational view that enhances the work of participating organizations, reduces complexity for analysts and dispatchers and provides real-time insights to leadership.

Real-time intelligence capabilities are more accessible than ever for smaller agencies due to technological advancements. But having the right mindset, staff and partnerships across the organization is key for success.
