Investing in research, innovation and development to help RID Crime
Donations to the RID Crime Program fund important initiatives including a new real-time command centre for our city.
Giving our police real-time crime fighting capability enhances both the safety of our community and police in the following ways:
- Real-time critical information and intelligence to increase the EPS’ ability to keep Edmonton safer and better protect our police officers;
- A centralized command hub that will enable police analysts to work more closely together with front line members through the sharing of police intelligence with immediacy that can only be facilitated through state of the art technology;
- Enhanced geographic mapping, a myriad of video feeds, open source monitoring, facial recognition for 24/7/365 intelligence generation for front-line policing everywhere—all the time—giving our police a much broader, immediate and accurate perspective on citywide crime and criminals that currently does not exist;
- A smart policing hub to ensure that the right resources are assigned to the right place at the right time in order to prevent crime, victimization and disorder.
