Manage Data
As cybercrime increases, law enforcement agencies continue to be a significant target for bad actors looking to claim the extremely high value data these organizations hold. Within data security and management, there are three vital categories to consider:
Secure Investment
With new technology comes the need to update to new devices, software and security measures, but these upgrades can come with a hefty price tag. Smaller law enforcement agencies have to build their case for funding allocation with data from outdated systems.
The good news is that public agencies are eligible to utilize the OMNIA Partners cooperative contracts with Carahsoft, which are compliant and available for use immediately. With this in mind, law enforcement agencies can have ease of mind when needing an equipment or software update, knowing they have access to immediate cost savings and value-added benefits through a cooperative purchasing organization.
Cooperative purchasing and better data solutions help streamline law enforcement’s work. Ensuring mobile accessibility is key, and 5G is being widely built to align with law enforcement’s needs. Various applications and software should be simple to access and use across any age or level of experience to allow officers to evaluate the more intimate details of a case, while technology handles the raw data collection and analyses.
Valuable data to provide transparency in a case is crime data, use-of-force data and mental and behavioral health crisis response data. New, collaborative data portals provide community members the opportunity to download and analyze data, instilling trust between law enforcement agencies and the public.
The demand for quick and accurate results within law enforcement is rising much faster than the ability for agencies to replace old legacy systems and implement newer, more robust technologies. To ultimately improve the relationship between law enforcement and their communities, and ensure public safety, it’s important for IT providers to continue to educate on the offerings available and for agencies and communities to work together to provide feedback.
