Analyzing Domestic Violence at IACP 2016
SunGard Public Sector, a Platinum Sponsor at this year’s International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference held in San Diego, CA, is hosting a panel discussion on Saturday, October 15 from 2:00 – 3:00 PM in Room 6A. The panel will discuss how data analysis has played a major role in the highly successful High Point Model, now recognized by the DOJ’s Office of Violence Against Women.
Law enforcement is on the front lines of domestic violence. The City of High Point, North Carolina recognized this and figured out a way, through collaboration of many organizations, to implement policies and procedures that hold offenders accountable. In order to address the domestic violence problem, officials needed to get an accurate portrayal of what was happening behind closed doors in their city.
According to Big Mountain Data, domestic violence rears its ugly head every day in the U.S. where at least three people are murdered at the hands of someone they know intimately. On average, domestic violence homicides constitute at least one third of all murders in the U.S. every year. It’s one of the most predictable crimes that law enforcement confronts on an annual basis. Officers new to the force start to see patterns emerging immediately after they begin their careers. It’s for this reason, that Big Mountain Data worked with SunGard Public Sector and law enforcement in High Point, NC to demonstrate how the data they already have in their Records Management System (RMS) and Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) systems could reveal the answers they needed.
The Police Department in High Point implemented a progressive offender-focused deterrence program that has significantly reduced the numbers of violent crimes associated with domestic violence. Using data mining, law enforcement experts were able to fuel social change. This resulted in one of the most successful case studies in the United States. High Point was able to reduce domestic violence recidivism and virtually eliminate domestic violence homicides within their city.
There is a movie being produced by The Documentary Group entitled “High Point Ten-Seventy-Nine: The Best Way to Keep Her Safe is to Make Him Stop”. It is a feature length film that tells the story of High Point’s groundbreaking fight against domestic violence.
The panel at the IACP conference will be introduced and hosted by our COO, Kevin Lafeber. Participating in the panel will be Marty Sumner, retired High Point Chief; Ken Shultz, current High Point Police Chief; Judy Brenner, High Point Crime Analyst; Mark Sink, Lexington, NC Police Chief; Sgt. Rhett Cady, and Hollywood, FL.
This session, held at the IACP convention in San Diego, CA on Saturday, October 15 from 2 p.m. – 3 p.m. will fill up fast, so reserve your spot today. Look for it in the conference education schedule titled:
