Advanced technology is helping to utilise increased data from video, social media and other sources for better crime detection, prevention and resolution.

Motorola Solutions has partnered with Wynyard Group to integrate next-generation crime analytics, and help law enforcement agencies connect disparate data sources such as criminal history, social media networks, property records, field notes and other types of evidence.

The software helps identify criminal patterns and explore relationships by analysing data in minutes rather than days, freeing up agency resources to investigate leads and solve cases.

Earlier this year, Motorola Solutions acquired PublicEngines and its ‘CommandCentral Predictive' and ‘CommandCentral Analytics' products to expand its innovative Smart Public Safety Solutions.

The Wynyard Group software enhances CommandCentral by connecting the dots between multiple databases and evidence libraries to help investigators prevent and solve crime.

“The acquisitions, partnerships and investments Motorola Solutions continues to make this year are significantly strengthening our customers' ability to prevent, detect and solve crimes with more information at their fingertips than ever before,” says Bob Schassler, Motorola Solutions executive vice president.

“Motorola Solutions' Smart Public Safety Solutions and Wynyard Group's analytics software will help public safety quickly gain actionable intelligence from an increasing volume of available data,” he says.

Motorola Solutions' Intelligence-Led Public Safety platform helps agencies share data regionally or nationally to help deter crimes that extend across jurisdictions.

“Wynyard Group provides advanced crime analytics solutions to national security and large law enforcement agencies around the world,” says Craig Richardson, Wynyard Group chief executive officer.

“The partnership with Motorola Solutions creates new capabilities to help law enforcement identify persons, relationships and events of interest and provide a single view of the criminal environment to help stop criminals and protect victims,” he says.

This ‘Software as a Service' (SaaS) solution will be available to public safety agencies of all sizes.
