May 21, 2018 to May 23, 2018 Event Website RTI will be at Booth 405 during the International Association of Chiefs of Police’s Technology Conference (LEIM) from May 21-23 with Brian Acken and Brian Aargaard discussing RTI’s CFS Analytics, a new tool for analyzing calls-for-service data to improve operational efficiency.
In jurisdictions throughout the United States, law enforcement agencies, fire departments, and emergency medical services have little time and too few resources for nonessential functions and analysis. High demand for public safety and emergency service resources dictates that these agencies must be as efficient as possible.
To ensure they are operating at peak efficiency agencies must accurately and efficiently analyze the demand on their resources and personnel. They also must be able to justify how those resources are being used—to the public and to elected officials responsible for public safety. Specifically, as communities demand increased accountability for all aspects of public safety operations, agencies must justify operational and strategic decisions to demonstrate transparency as well as their commitment to the safety of the communities they serve. Police research and other public agency studies can gain accountability with the comprehensive data from CFS Analytics.
Anytime someone calls 911, also known as a call for service (CFS), the police, firefighters, or paramedics respond. Calls for service drive the demand for public safety and emergency service resources. Thus, CFS data are the primary measure of operational demands and the ideal subject of analysis to determine strategic priorities from police research.
