The Streets, People, the Plethora of Proactive Information

The Streets, People, 
the Plethora of Proactive Information 
by Nicholas Ashton, CEO/CIO, CommSmart Global Group

It is stated that 98% of all policing is reactionary. 

Professional crime-fighting today and for the last thirty-five years relies predominantly on three tactics:

(1) Vehicle patrol
(2) Rapid response to calls for service
(3) Retrospective investigation of crime

Over the past few decades, police responsiveness has been enhanced by connecting law enforcement to citizens by improved communications, including mobile phones, social media, cameras, both public and private, and by matching police officer schedules and locations to anticipated calls for service.  The police focus on serious crime has also been sharpened by screening calls for service, targeting patrol, and developing forensic technology (e.g., automated fingerprint systems, computerized criminal record files, basic analytic data etc.)

Although this tactic has scored successes, it has been criticized within and outside policing for being reactive rather than proactive. They have also been criticized for failing to prevent crime.

Reactive tactics have some virtues, of course. The police go where crimes have occurred and when citizens have summoned them; otherwise, they do not intrude. The police keep their distance from the community, and thereby retain their impartiality. They do not develop the sorts of relationships with citizens that could bias their responses to crime incidents.

It comes right down to Intelligence Gathering, pure and simple! Then having the analytic tools to understand what information connections you have.

Social Media Monitoring is more than looking at a Twitter or Facebook accounts or other social media, it is knowing the connections, messages, photographs, GPS location and their ‘live’ video transmissions.  Times have changed, it is not the smoke-filled pub, club or meeting place, it was their mouth than was running, telling all, bragging.  It is now their fingers and thumbs that tell us all!

Under the Nine Peelian Principles, ‘the people are the police and the police are the people’.  You must have a dialogue with the citizenry, after all, they are close to everything, family, friends, and those miscreants of crime.  They are the closest and best informed, they are within the atmosphere of life, what we call Atmospherics.

Do not be in a fog regarding what has occurred, the fog or atmosphere is likened to being surrounded with information. 

That is Atmospherics!

Street level data is the lifeblood of policing if only you work in reverse, proactively, collecting the sounds and actions of individuals and communities.

Imperative information on gangs, drug/human traffickers, child sexual exploiters, fraud, scammers and basically all crimes against society. Information is there and ready to be collected, analyzed and acted upon. 

As we have stated over and over again, ‘Someone, Somewhere, Always Knows Something’.  Fact, not fiction, sadly getting those ‘in the know’ to talk, share or spill the beans, it is an art form and continues to be difficult to enact.
