Siloed IT systems can’t provide the big-picture insights city and public safety leaders need to ensure the highest levels of public safety. To deliver the most comprehensive and proactive protection, public safety agencies need to aggregate and analyze data from multiple systems.

Join us August 14 at 11:00am PT/2:00pm ET to hear how the city of Chicago, the second largest police department in the United States, leveraged an integrated Strategic Decision Support Center to aggregate public safety data and reduce overall violent crime by 24 percent and shootings by 70 percent.
You’ll hear:
- How a Strategic Decision Support Center can aggregate and analyze data from multiple systems — computer-aided dispatch, video surveillance, automatic license plate recognition, gunshot detection, facial recognition, etc. — to facilitate faster decision-making and reduce crime.
- How leveraging GIS location and visual information can help responders share information instantly with field personnel to enable them to work more effectively and safely,
- How a Strategic Decision Support Center can provide public safety agencies a better way to use existing intelligence scattered across multiple departments.
