PoliceOne’s Editor in Chief Doug Wyllie recently spoke with Lieutenant John Moses of John’s Creek Police Department in Georgia about a new tool being used by the department, dubbed “PoliceView,” giving citizens greater visibility into the department’s efforts. PoliceView, utilizes SunGard Public Sector’s Public Connect solution, powered by Socrata’s open data, to improve both time and cost efficiency for officers in the department, while improving communication between the department and the community it serves.

“The best aspect of PoliceView is that it is proactive on the part of the police department — citizens can easily find the data they need — it is all available in a publicly digestible format,” said Lieutenant Moses.

Leveraging big data into a system like PoliceView can also help give departments greater insight into internal data related to arrests, convictions and response times. The agency can then make better-informed decisions about patrol staffing and deployment as necessary. Thanks to open data, Johns Creek PD has become more efficient internally, and been able to more easily educate the community about efforts as part of an ongoing dialogue.

“It’s time to provide a comprehensive, new view into the law enforcement community, where police officers can showcase the great work they do, and the public can understand how the system works. It is a dialogue we need to be having, and everyone will benefit from the experience. We are encouraged that agencies across the country understand this problem, and the value of open data in solving it,” said Chris Schoenmann, Program Manager, SunGard Public Sector.

If you want to compare the number of citations your agency issued in one month to another month, how would you get the information? One option is searching your RMS – most modern Records Management Systems have the ability to search records by time, name, or location. But what if your agency is interested in looking at the bigger picture and really diving into trends? You might have to manually check records one by one. And if you want to analyze this information on the fly, or develop a report on crime and trends for a local government office or for a citizen because of a FOIA request, this most likely means valuable man hours spent by staff in your agency.

Thanks to SunGard Public Sector’s new Public Connect solution, this paradigm is shifting. Public Connect, powered by Socrata’s open data expertise, was developed by SunGard to address a growing need in the public safety community. The tool, which closely aligns with SunGard’s safety data standards and the White House’s Police Data Initiative, allows agencies to catalog data such as how officers are used, where they respond, and what they respond to. The resulting data is easily accessible, searchable, and indexable for other individuals within an agency or outside it.

“When I first saw Public Connect in action, I was stunned by the breadth of information that was available,” said Lieutenant Jon Moses, Johns Creek Police Department. “All the relevant crime stats, and information about our agency, were just a click away.”

Johns Creek Police Department in Johns Creek, GA is an early adopter of the Public Connect solution and is exploring some of the different ways they can learn about themselves by analyzing the data they’re collecting. “Public Connect gives us an opportunity to visualize the data in a way we couldn’t before,” added Lt. Moses. “We could see for example that responses to house alarms spike in July every year. We coordinate that information through our dispatch during that time of year to ensure officers will be where they need to be when they need to be there.”

Johns Creek’s Public Connect solution, called “Police View” by the agency is now online and can be seen here: https://policeview.johnscreekga.gov/.

The general public can benefit from Public Connect, too. The tool is very customizable depending on an agency’s needs, and can be configured for public use. Some agencies may set up online portals to allow the public to search police data quickly, potentially removing the need for FOIA requests.

“One of the benefits to us is that it was cost-neutral to implement,” added Lt. Moses. “It’s a new tool that provides new functionalities for our agency, but it also gives us an opportunity to consolidate or retire other assets.”
