We are delighted to announce that Chorus Intelligence has been selected by Virginia Beach Police Department (VBPD) to implement the Chorus Intelligence Suite (CIS).
The CIS will enhance VBPD’s ability to prevent, respond to, manage and analyze the biggest crime types and threats to public safety in the City.
The implementation will support VBPD’s emerging vision to establish a leading Crime Information Center within the City of Virginia Beach. The CIS is deployed in a secure cloud and will help VBPD to manage every stage of a digital investigation. Police Officers and Crime Analysts are able to collect, develop and disseminate investigative data, from one fully integrated solution.
Benefits to public safety include:
- Data-driven decision making – Data can be triaged, visualized and enriched in several ways to spot connections;
- Maximized operational efficiency – significant time savings through rapid data cleansing techniques;
- Improved resource allocation – Intuitive self-serve analysis empowers multiple disciplines to cut straight to investigative answers;
- Seamless collaboration between Officers – share data via a fully secure, collaborative workspace.
Chief Paul Neudigate, VBPD said: “We are excited to be working with Chorus Intelligence on this digital transformation project. We set out to re-engineer our analytical capabilities and sought a solution that would support us in maximizing our operational effectiveness and time efficiency, while providing the best possible return on investment. The CIS will enable us to achieve this and set a precedent for intelligence-led, data-driven policing going forward.
Boyd Mulvey, CEO of Chorus Intelligence also commented: “This is a very exciting time for Chorus Intelligence as we jointly deliver this project in partnership with VBPD. Chorus Intelligence is already used by most police agencies in the UK and has played an integral role in helping to solve some of the country’s most complex investigations. We can’t wait to bring these capabilities to Virginia Beach to help its Officers fight crime, protect the public and to assist the City to maintain its status as one of the safest communities in the United States.”
Chorus Intelligence has also located its North American Headquarters in Virginia Beach and is collaborating with the Department of Economic Development to encourage inward investment into the area. For more information on this partnership, visit here
