MICROSOFT builds crime-fighting 'dashboard' for NYPD

Created jointly by the NYPD and Microsoft - a system has been developed and know as 'the dashboard'. This state-of-the-art system is the latest in crime fighting technology. The Dashboard is a system setup in the police control room that immediately mines data from police records, data, security cameras and other available information and presents it to officers post a 911 call. The system is very user-friendly and presents data in a structured form helping officers quickly zero in on a threat and see what connects it has to past police records. Helping them determine the terror threat level.

Microsoft NYPD DashboardThe system is currently being tested and refined before being rolled out to all 34,000 officers. The way it works is that as soon as a 911 call comes in. The call pops up on a panel. when the officers clicks on the alert. He is taken to the area on a map, also showing the cameras that are already in the area. Helping the officer zero down and determine the exact threat level. This program has been jointly developed by the NYPD and software developers from Microsoft. Technology is once again being put to good use, helping the police fight crime and prevent unwanted situations.
