No matter what statistics state or the media tells you, crime is rising and has changed for the worse.  This is not the social world of your parents or grandparents.  The bombardment of the crime in various degrees is growing at a rate that we shall never catch up on, with many issues left by the wayside or ignored.

Cuts and more cuts at the wrong time are continuing and the 'COPE' is front and center in so many agencies globally.  Not good enough for the expectations of communities and the members of the public.


CommSmart Global Group, a LexisNexis Risk Solutions Partner, is passionate about making the change and has been doing so for over two decades.

Our Accurint Virtual Crime Center is akin to no other tool in the crime fighting stable.  Our hundreds of existing customer base are in awe in the steps we have taken, yes,  giant leaps forward to create databases that integrate with your crime stats, neighboring departments, counties and nationally, without lines of demarcation. 


No more 'Go Fish' for information and it is for everyone, beat or ward officers through senior management.  We must not leave out the analytics team and the toolset they now have to support you and the community.


Sir Robert Peel introduced his Nine Peelian Principles and #1:

What has changed from 1829 to today?

We are still charged in the prevention of crime and disorder are we not?  

Do you have the real resources to maintain the changes in crime that have occurred? 

Criminals in this anti-social world have become more sophisticated and like the guns of choice have better armaments to attack and sadly succeed in scoffing the laws.

Social media is playing a major role in communications and law enforcement is not catching up!  It does not have to be that way, we have the answers with compliant social media monitoring with first class crime/predictive analytics, plus community crime mapping.

It is not just these tools, CommSmart Global Group has the professional services to enable the success.  Our coaching and mentoring by former officers is far beyond just the software, it is the conversations at an understandable level, without the gobbly-gook thrown in!

This is the first Peelian Principle, now ask the questions of today and yesterday.
