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.
