Unlocking the Crime and Fraud Data Prison
Unlocking the "Data Prison" with the Matchcite Master Data
Most crimes committed in society today are done so by individuals that have habits of one form or the other, many people steal to feed a habit and most commit crime in the same habitual way. Most law enforcement agencies hold information in an at best silo-ed and at worse complex and inaccessible way. So the opportunity exists in this landscape to use Master Data Management to both bring together information locked away in this "data prison" to expose the methods and patterns that exist in the vast majority of crime.
Matchcite's master data management solution has been proven to be able to bring together vast amounts of crime based data into a single easy to use repository that allows analysts to visually represent concepts such as Events, Suspects, Victims and Objects. This is all made possible due to the complex matching technology that enables Matchcite to match these concepts using height, build, hair, markings, ethnic origin, location, name etc.
Such data can then be interrogated using such visual tools to find similar crime, other crime in a similar location and to plot these crimes on a map. Matchcite's toolkits are ready to use extensible analytical environments that can bring order to a seemingly incongruous world.
Some of the benefits that can be gained using Master Data Management in such an advanced form are:
- Local, regional, state and national policing authorities can unify data to gain a better view of the whole crime including patterns and habits
- Intelligence agencies determine affiliations between persons and groups of interest and identify patterns of malicious activity to detect and prevent threats
- Law enforcement organizations can share information to solve crimes committed by criminals that cross jurisdictional boundaries
