DataWalk, provider of the industry’s most advanced intelligence analysis solution, today announced that Anderson (SC) Police Department has selected DataWalk to be their intelligence analysis solution of the future.
Like most law enforcement agencies, Anderson Police Department has struggled with important data being isolated in various “information silos,” when what is needed is an integrated, holistic view of crimes, criminals, and other data.
Anderson Police Department will use DataWalk as an intelligence database; as a key support tool for investigations and analysis; and for instant, self-service management reporting for agency leadership.
“We’re pleased to work with DataWalk and produce information for our officers and command personnel that is targeted, useful, and highlights patterns in our data that we can then use to detect, identify, and intervene with prolific and violent offenders,” said Jim Stewart, Chief of the Anderson (SC) Police Department.
“I’ve had the opportunity to become familiar with many products and vendors,” said Dr. Shelagh Dorn of Anderson Police Department’s crime analysis unit, who also serves as President of the International Association of Law Enforcement Intelligence Analysts (IALEIA). “DataWalk’s technology, product, and people provide us with superb analytics to obtain a holistic view of our data, and we’re eager to begin using this solution.”
“We are excited that Anderson Police Department has selected DataWalk,” said Gabe Gotthard, DataWalk CEO. “Being selected by this agency, and by a highly respected crime and intelligence analysis industry luminary, reflects the breakthrough capabilities that we are delivering to the US analytics marketplace.”
