Topping Forbes’ list of the most dangerous cities in 2013 for the fifth year in a row, Detroit is taking a proactive approach to combating these issues & fighting crime.
The DCC needs to aggregate terabytes of proprietary and public crime-related data to assist in investigations as well as supplement public notifications and coordinate related activities.
The DCC selected Datameer’s big data analytics application to integrate, analyze and visualize the terabytes of data.
Datameer is the only end-to-end solution that was able to tackle all key tasks of the analytics process and support DCC in Fighting Crime in Detroit.
The time saved on pulling data together, analyzing and visualizing the findings allowed the commission to laser focus their effort on discovering what and who is driving violent crime. “Datameer allows law enforcement to basically understand what is driving crime and kind of step back and be a little more proactive and not totally reactive,” said Andrew Arena, Executive Director, DCC.
This is just the beginning for data-driven law enforcement initiatives in general and Detroit specifically, but the implications are stunning.
