The Salisbury Police Department (SPD) recently debuted its new Rowan Regional Crime Information Center (RRCIC), a law enforcement hub which enables Rowan County agencies to more closely monitor and help solve crime incidents. The RRCIC boasts views of public and private camera systems and shared record management systems among agencies. The Center provides one central location for officers and analysts to hone their skills and use social networking and crime pattern data to support investigations.
Chief Stokes said, “Our ability to track and monitor for crime incidents, patterns, and trends through the technology and analytics in the RRCIC will be most beneficial for law enforcement in Rowan County. The center will continue to build on the strong relationship and collaboration we have with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office and the other police agencies in the county which benefits our citizens.”
The RRCIC was made possible by a $500,000 Strategies in Policing Innovation grant offered by the Bureau of Justice Assistance – US Department of Justice.
