SAS Approach to Gang Investigations and Analysis: Understanding the Gang Environment to Enhance Investigations

Learn how the fusion center can improve its tools and capture incident data and analytics for gang-related activities.

About the webinar

SAS solutions can help fusion centers capture incident data across risk factors like gangs, drugs and gun violence.

In this webinar, we’ll be joined by gang expert Edwin Santana as we explore how a SAS® gang dashboard helps manage, uncover and explore obvious and non-obvious relationships in various data streams in gang investigations.

The source of gang data may include CAD, RMS, department or statewide intelligence systems and departments of corrections.

The SAS gang dashboard integrates data from disparate systems to automate distinguishing gang-related incidents from those that are not.

Fusion centers can make sense of all gang-related data, automating the generation of statewide gang assessments and criminal intelligence for investigative support.
