The intelligence-sharing and communication methods used by law enforcement off late are struggling to keep up with the pace of today’s real world events. Let’s illustrate this with two situations.
Say, a police dispatcher receives a call regarding a civilian being gunned down in the neighbourhood. Usually, this is followed by the dispatcher connecting with nearby police officers and transferring the information and location details by word-of-mouth. The available officer then visits the crime scene and reports back to his head. The reports are filed which are at times difficult to locate, crumbled or lost.
With an instant messaging and collaboration tool in place, civilians can instantly chat or send photos regarding an incident to the dispatcher, who in turn forwards the same to the team along with the location. Using the GPS location tracking and real-time information, the officer-in-charge can analyse and comprehend the situation and simultaneously collaborate with his head for inputs. And in the future, the police department can go back and check the digital records for any further investigation.
