The police forces in the German federal state of Lower Saxony were facing challenges in fighting crime and improving traffic flows due to the lack of efficient use of information from various sources. The existing systems stored information about suspects, incidents, victims of crime, and traffic accidents in several systems, making it difficult for officers to gain an overview without consulting multiple data sources. This process was time-consuming and inefficient. Moreover, the technical demands for analyzing and evaluating incidents had increased over the years, necessitating a more advanced business intelligence solution. The police force needed a solution that could provide officers with individually compiled reports about specific locations and types of crimes in near real-time, supported by a unified, consistent event processing and evaluation system.
About The Customer
The Central Police Directorate of Lower Saxony, managed by Chief of Police Christiana Berg, includes riot police, the police helicopter squadron, river police, mobile units, and the central organization for service dog training. The body also houses a 300-strong department tasked with providing IT services and support to police officers. The Directorate was seeking a solution to improve their crime fighting and traffic management capabilities by making better use of information from a wide range of sources. They needed a system that could provide officers with individually compiled reports about specific locations and types of crimes in near real-time.
To overcome the challenge, the Lower Saxony police decided to develop a centralized analytics system based on cutting-edge business intelligence technology. The system, known as NIVADIS, was designed to support operational and strategic decision-making at all levels of the organization. The Central Police Directorate, which provides IT services to police forces across Lower Saxony, worked with Steria Mummert Consulting to develop the system based on IBM® Cognos® Business Intelligence. The new solution automatically sends up-to-date information from multiple police operational systems to a central data warehouse three times per day. The information is stored for up to ten years, in accordance with the relevant data protection laws. A suite of analytics applications uses this pool of data to compile customized reports on matters such as crime statistics and traffic accidents. The solution can be accessed by all officers and is used extensively at all levels of the police hierarchy.
