NYPD Leverages MapInfo Technology to Develop Real Time Crime Center
Printer Friendly versionPrinter Friendly


TROY, N.Y.-- Aug. 25, 2005-- MapInfo Corporation (Nasdaq: MAPS), the leading global provider of Location Intelligence solutions, today announced that its technology is a critical component of the New York Police Department's (NYPD) new Real Time Crime Center.

With more than 12 million emergency calls and 1.3 million complaint and arrest records processed each year by the NYPD, the Real Time Crime Center is a valuable crime fighting resource. The first of its kind, the technology nerve center gives detectives instantaneous information on homicides and shootings citywide, enabling them to identify and respond to emerging crimes.

With MapInfo MapXtreme(R), police detectives are able to get detailed maps of the City precinct-by-precinct and track suspects to home addresses and locations where they are most likely to flee. Detectives are able to access data from a number of sources in real-time, allowing better identification of geographic relationships and patterns across the city.

"Strategic mapping capabilities provide NYPD crime analysts with an intuitive way to analyze and view crimes by type and location," New York Police Department Deputy Commissioner Jim Onalfo told attendees at the Crime Center's unveiling. "With the added location component, the Real Time Crime Center delivers critical information and visual analysis to detectives in seconds, helping the NYPD stop spikes in crime before they become trends, and assist in locating and apprehending criminals."

Before the Real Time Crime Center, detectives had limited access to information about the possible locations of suspects and would spend hours, or even days, searching for the information. Now, police detectives can access this information in simply minutes via phone, fax, email or pager before they arrive at the crime scene.

"The NYPD Real Time Crime Center, powered by MapInfo MapXtreme, exemplifies how Location Intelligence plays a critical role in helping to analyze important information and ensure the safety of our citizens," said Mike Hickey, COO at MapInfo. "We are thrilled to be the mapping component of the NYPD's technology nerve center, and to provide instantaneous access to important information about crimes that will help aid in keeping New York City's streets safe."
