Lansing Police Department chooses NC4 Street Smart® as their real-time crime-fighting technology solution
EL SEGUNDO, Calif., April 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — NC4®, a leader in revolutionizing safety and security and an innovator in law enforcement technology, announced today that the Lansing Police Department (LPD), has chosen the NC4 Street Smart® solution to support their community-based, problem-oriented and data-driven policing strategy.
The LPD, with more than 200 sworn officers, protects a diverse community of over 114,000 residents. Street Smart will help the department provide safety and security to its residents by providing a daily-use crime-fighting solution that provides a common operating picture of structured vs. unstructured data. Officers will now have access to true, real-time data to pinpoint crimes, patterns, and incidents in a flexible and easy-to-use platform.
“NC4 Street Smart fits right into our evidence-based policing tool box by using real-time data to lead our crime reduction intervention. We are very excited to be able to deploy this crime-fighting tool, as it will be a force multiplier for our officers and investigators in the field,” said Michael Yankowski, Chief of the Lansing Police Department.
The Street Smart solution allows officers to stay apprised of activities and to collaborate using situation-based bulletins, secure blogs, and case management tools that optimize the sharing of crime-related information. It supports LPD’s philosophy of using problem-solving and community policing techniques by giving officers access to the data they need to identify threats, measure the results of their interventions, and to hold themselves accountable to each other and to their community.
“We are excited to be expanding our solution to another agency in Michigan and to support the LPD by providing technology that arms their officers with critical crime-related information and intelligence to fight crime,” said Rob Wolf, Vice President, NC4 Public Safety. “Our hope is that this solution will help the LPD reduce crime, build community trust, and improve public safety in the community.”
