CFS Analytics is a data visualization software for police decision making that was developed by data scientists, criminologists, and police. Public saftey analytics helps agencies to visualize CAD data to gain insight into resource use and response times. The insight gained from public saftey analytics is valuable for police decision making, as it provides justification for resource allocation and helps to better address community needs.

CFS Analytics makes data more analytically accessible. It was developed by RTI International’s team of experts with first-hand experience in the agencies facing these resource issues.

RTI International has partnered with Geographic Technologies Group (GTG) to deliver a software package that integrates and analyzes 911 call data with GIS mapping data to provide additional analytical and operational capabilities.
