Canada Uses IBM BI Software to Fight Crime

Thursday, September 24, 2009

IBM on Tuesday announced that the police department of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada is now using the business analytics software designed to drive corporate revenue and profits to reduce crime and improve the department's overall efficiency.

IBM (NYSE: IBM) officials said police servicing the one million-plus people in the western Canadian city will now be able to see data in "near real time," giving them the ability to identify crime "hot spots," track and manage dispatch delays and travel time and pinpoint trends and locations of specific crimes and criminals.

"Twenty-first century police services such as Edmonton are using business analytics to modernize the face of crime fighting," said Anne Altman, general manager of IBM's global public sector, said in a statement. "Our police services need relevant information, and they need it immediately."
