Over half of violent crimes and 80% of property crimes go unsolved each year. The information that can solve and prevent these crimes exists but is frequently locked away in inaccessible legacy information silos within the 18,000 local and state law enforcement agencies in the United States. 

With the right police database software, you can access all of your agency’s data — along with data from agencies across the United States — with a single, easy-to-use tool.

Forensic Logic deploys the largest, most powerful network of users, information and technology in American law enforcement. With the most advanced search and analysis capabilities in the industry, we give our users the information they need to keep themselves and their communities safe.

Our software seamlessly collects information from a variety of information systems and databases that reside in law enforcement agencies, including:

Records Management Systems - Computer Aided Dispatch Systems - Arrest and Booking Systems - Gunshot Location Systems - License Plate Recognition Systems - Drug Hotlines - Organized Retail Crime Systems - Human Trafficking Systems - Intelligence Brief Systems - Citation Systems - Automobile Crash Systems - Alcohol and Tobacco Enforcement Systems - NIBIN Ballistic Systems

Our ability to consolidate data from disparate data sources allows law enforcement to seamlessly visualize associations between people, addresses, phone numbers, vehicles and more.

Discover the five ways police database software can help improve public safety.

1. Access a Vast Network of Information

With Forensic Logic, patrol officers, investigators, analysts and command staff can quickly and easily find critical information from any web-enabled device, whether they’re at their desk or in the field. 

With over 1.3 billion agency records, we power the most powerful network of law enforcement information in the country. You can access a wide range of data, including court data, evidence, and lab data, NIBIN shell casing reports, mugshots, probation and parole information, warrants, CrimeDex alerts, BOLOs, vehicular data and the universe of Thomson Reuters CLEAR records.

2. Quickly Find the Information You Need

Law enforcement officers can’t wait until they’re back at their desk to track down the information they need.

When solving crimes, every second counts. Quick access to relevant information improves situational awareness for law enforcement users at all levels.

With Forensic Logic’s police database software, your investigators and patrol officers can access relevant, actionable information while still on scene at major incidents from any web-based device. The ability to quickly search the Forensic Logic database for leads and suspects helps your officers make more informed decisions, solve crimes more quickly and improve safety.

3. Work Together with Law Enforcement Across the U.S.

It would make things so much easier if criminals only operated within a single jurisdiction and consistently committed only one type of crime. However, we know this is not the case. 

Open up access to interagency law enforcement data — as well as across departments — and share information effectively across systems and jurisdictions.

Our Google-like search capability returns results in seconds — from across your agency’s IT systems as well as across the county, state, and country — regardless of technology, document type or data format.

As a result, law enforcement can collaborate more effectively, increase officer safety and solve more crimes faster.

4. Make Sense of a Vast Amount of Data

In addition to finding relevant information, you need to be able to quickly make sense of it. That’s why we’ve integrated our powerful search capabilities and COPLINK’s advanced analytics and reporting in a single platform.

By centralizing and applying complex analytics across multiple data sets, COPLINK provides customized reporting and can help your staff identify patterns, anomalies, and outliers:

  • Patrol Officers can instantly access the critical information they need to make the right decisions in the field.
  • Analysts can better perform entity resolution, link analysis and intelligence production without traditional geospatial, temporal or technical restrictions. 
  • Investigators can glean actionable insights, in real time, that help identify crime trends and reduce criminal activity.
  • Command Staff can develop meaningful metrics with access to the largest network of law enforcement data and a more comprehensive CompStat landscape.

5. Focus on Crime, Not Technology

Focus on solving cases and reducing crime — not becoming experts in IT infrastructure and learning multiple technology tools. 

Forensic Logic’s police database software seamlessly integrates with your agency’s existing IT infrastructure, providing a single, unified view across your systems of record. Instead of searching for multiple tools, you can access everything from a centralized location.

The solution automatically normalizes all your data into a standard XML schema adopted by the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security.

And last, but certainly not least, you can rest assured that your sensitive agency data remains secure in our fully CJIS-compliant cloud.
