RSO introduces “Street Smart” software as high-tech crime fighting tool
From Riverside County Sheriff’s Department:
On Tuesday, October 16, 2018 the Riverside County Board of Supervisors approved the Riverside County Sheriff Department’s request to acquire and implement NC4’s Street Smart software to more effectively fight crime. With the deployment of NC4 Street Smart®, we will equip 1,400+ patrol and investigative personnel with the sophisticated technology and critical resources they need to reduce crime and contribute to the safety of the communities we serve.
Street Smart will help the department provide safety and security to the more than 2 million residents by providing a crime-fighting solution that arms our officers with critical real-time data in their vehicles while they patrol our communities. This solution will allow the deputies to stay apprised of activities and to collaborate using situation-based bulletins, continuously updated crime maps, incident recaps, and case management tools that optimize the sharing of crime-related information to pinpoint crimes, patterns, and identify offenders. Investigators will have direct access to report recaps and gain the ability to search across incidents prior to reports being completed or approved.
“I’m excited about this new technology and its potential to not only solve crimes quicker, but to allow collaboration between deputies, stations and other law enforcement agencies in real-time” said Stan Sniff, Sheriff of Riverside County.
The deployment of Street Smart is the first step in the Department’s implementation of a new Computer Aided Dispatch System (CAD) and Records Management System (RMS). A core feature of Street Smart technology is the ability to perform a single data search across multiple streams of data, including CAD and RMS, for relevant information that can be immediately shared, which maximizes policing effectiveness.
Cities using Street Smart technology report increased safety for officers and citizens, double-digit decreases in crime, reductions in the time between incident and arrest.
Street Smart is scheduled to go live in January 2019 and will facilitate improved data sharing between patrol and investigative personnel as well as other county departments and allied law enforcement agencies using a common operational perspective.
