Data Storage – Secure or a Lost Cause? - Swamp, Lake, Landfill, or Communication Nightmare? - Example: National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS)

Data Storage – Secure or a Lost Cause?
Swamp, Lake, Landfill, or Communication Nightmare?
Example: National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS)

Today’s data flow is so massive and fast, that most of the data is a lost cause.  Why would you not fully understand the information contained as it passes before your eyes?

No company can continue in this manner placing billions of pieces of physical information/data in storage which has not been sorted, examined and collated upon receipt.  Statistics that are created from this silo stored information is always so out of date, it is next to useless, especially crime data ‘live’ from the streets.

A perfect example of this problem of collection and what to do with it is the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS), an incident-based reporting system for crimes known to the police. For each crime incident coming to the attention of law enforcement, a variety of data is collected about the incident.

Here lies the crux of the issue it is what is actually collected or failed to be collected, such as GPS location or even a physical address.

The data includes the nature and types of specific offenses in the incident, characteristics of the victim(s) and offender(s), types and value of property stolen and recovered, and characteristics of persons arrested in connection with a crime incident.

Phenomenal, if it was being used immediately and not placed in a data silo or a digital landfill, only to be accessed at year end, analyzed and a statistical report then created after months and months, then released to the agencies. 

Too late, wasted expense and the crime, criminal and opportunities have long gone.  No crime is ever solved with digital data never exposed or immediately available for crime analysts or street level officers, that is where we make the difference!

I know we sound like we are against NIBRS, we are not! We have an opportunity to enhance.
