Software that searches, analyzes, and uncovers connections between diverse data sources

PublicSafetyLink™, powered by Kovid Thinking Machine, lets users find information about suspects by search terms such as tattoos, gang monikers, vehicle plates even when the information is located in systems supported by different vendors. Users can visualize patterns such as patterns in a geographical area, patterns involving time of days and the day of the week, etc., even when the information is sourced from multiple systems. In addition, users would be able to view information from different vendor systems in a consistent manner without the need to understand how the information is stored at the source.

Appropriately authorized users would be able to examine logs maintained by the system to ensure that the information shared is not abused. This, in turn, permits counties, cities and towns to make their information available for search with confidence.



Big Data Analytics engines to handle large volume of data. The system is accessible through a web browser and can either be hosted on premises or off site in a secured cloud facility. PublicSafetyLink™ includes Natural Language Processing tools to analyze unstructured information. The solution also includes extensive audit logging to let the owners of the data determine, through an administration console, the users accessing their data, the search terms and the records that were examined in detail.


Federated Search and Bundles Queries of Law Enforcement Information from a variety of sources are supported. The users can search through multiple databases with search terms automatically extracted from the ingested documents. This provides the users with the ability to start with selected items of interest and broaden the search by reaching into multiple data sources.

Geospatial Views of the information ingested, such as shooting / robbery / burglary locations, ALPR hit locations, etc., are automatically provided to the users. The users would also be able overlay additional mapping layers, such as camera locations to help with investigations.

Heat Map Views including time of day analysis are also provided. The system lets the users visualize the information pertaining to the entire region or to selected jurisdictions. The heat maps and trend lines automatically adjust to the criteria selected.

Command, Control, and Collaboration: PublicSafetyLink provides command personnel with an overview of their area of responsibility, identifying trends and patterns. It also supports the field personnel by providing situational awareness, giving them the ability to act as the command staff’s (and each others’) eyes and ears.
