In San Francisco, the Police Department is about to get an upgrade: Next month, the SFPD will use the brand new Bay Area Regional Crime Center (BRICC) as its 24-hour command post, ABC News reported.

BRICC will be a clearinghouse for up-to-the-minute crime data, enabling police to respond based on real-time information. Part of the data used will come from the CompStat crime tracking system, which figures out the long-term trends in each crime category.

View a sneak peek at BRICC.
