Are You Coming Home Tonight?

Are You Coming Home Tonight?
by Nicholas Ashton, CEO/CIO, CommSmart Global Group

A question that is being asked more and more in one section of our abominable society.  You leave the house, say bye to the family and go on your merry way to work.  

Does not matter what your occupation is, you must travel, interact with others and go about your daily regimen. 

Then, you take the reverse journey and go home to the waiting family, you hope!

Police officers or anyone in public safety who are working with and for the public does not have the same understanding of the daily grind and the expectancy of returning home.  

The next call for service (911 or 999) could be the last part of active duty they will ever do.  The war against police officers is growing daily and the unknown or genuineness of the call must play on their minds.

Individuals, both terroristic and domestic are making calls for service and ambushing the attending officers.  Other incidents are a direct attack on law enforcement when working in the community.

'The public is the police and police are the public', the words of a man who had foresight in 1829 and Sir Robert Peel's Nine Peelian Principles stand firm today.  

In fact with known digital technology, the Nine Principles can be made into Ten.  

Information is bombarding us at such speeds the human brain cannot comprehend and requires assistance.  That is where computers and proven analytic software kicks in.  Yes, it is likened to Artifical Intelligence (AI).

Today, it is about technology, the social or unsocial media, running their fingers and thumbs instead of their mouths. 

The protection of officers and the understanding of the public who hate and wish to murder law enforcement can and are being detected and will be stopped.

This is the Atmospherics of our world, yes CommSmart Global Group, a LexisNexis Risk Solutions Partner, has decades of collecting and analyzing both public and law enforcement data that is amassed in its billions of records daily. 

Crime is not restricted to a four-block area of streets, it is national and global, we have developed with our qualified teams of ex-Metropolitan Police officers, ranging from Chief Superintendents, Chief Inspectors, Commanders, Flying Squad, Counter Terrorism, Beat/Ward Officers and incredible data analysts.  They have worked hand in hand in developing methods of collection and drill down analytics with successes, second to none on a daily basis.
  • Social Media Monitoring of individuals that comply with all legal ramifications of those individual users (countries)
  • Crime Analytics, knowing the beat/ward historically and what to be cognizant about and the attributes
  •  Community Crime Mapping, both public and internal
  • Predictive Analysis, having analysts who use our techniques to be ahead of the curve with proactive policing
  • Beat/Ward officers having the ability to use Smartphones/Laptop and Desktop computers to see so much more in a productive time frame.
  • Multi-Jurisdiction analytics.  Agencies are now working in silos and criminals are using this to exploit more criminal opportunities.  There is no need any longer to work singularly trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together.  We have the solutions to allow all agencies to work together efficiently and cooperatively.
If it sounds like we are being braggadocios about our capabilities, we are not
We only bring you the facts that we wish to work side by side with solution tools and mindset of major proportions.  It is the CommSmart Global Group which is an American company which is made up of mostly Brits and ex-cops, working within law enforcement proactive techniques, analytics, cyber security, and coaching/mentoring since 1992. 

Then there is LexisNexis, owned by another British company, RELX Group. It is a multinational information and analytics company based in London, in the United Kingdom. It operates in four market segments: scientific, technical and medical; risk and business analytics and legal.

LexisNexis Group is a corporation providing computer-assisted legal research as well as business research and risk management services. During the 1970’s, LexisNexis pioneered the electronic accessibility of legal and journalistic documents.

We are a commercial enterprise who collectively have invested in data collection from the streets to the war zones of the world to protect us all.  Whether it be the community, as the ‘police are the public and the public are the police’, or the war in Afghanistan, with the ability to predict the location of roadside IEDs for the US Department of Defense, saving hundreds, if not thousands of lives.

We are here now!  Working with knowledge of British Policing and data manipulation for a proactive result.

I believe we should be meeting with you all.  It is with senior management and departments who have been charged to create a solution.  Which by the way is already here and will assist in the demands of the community and government. 

We are all on the same page and need to be in the same room for a down-to-earth conversation on the capabilities of Digital Policing now and in the future.

It is not about who or what we are, it is about solving a dire situation and it is no good asking where policing will be in 2025, if you do not listen, review and understand what is already here in the Atmosphere!

A meeting, please…

It takes Social Media Monitoring, Public Data, Crime Analytics, Community Crime Mapping, Predictive Analysis and a strong listening ear.  It is not about marketing services, it is about the passion we have for making our social world more acceptable, safer and this we commit to you.
