Proactive Police Patrol Information (P3i)

[ This app is no longer available for download ]

"The static map is a thing of the past. With P3i, officers can maintain a high level of situational awareness with a glance, yet still obtain detailed information with a tap. Opportunities for proactive police work constantly stream across the map and into view. This is a game-changing technology in policing."

- Tom Casady, Public Safety Director, Lincoln, Nebraska

Proactive Police Patrol Information (P3i) is a revolutionary location-based services application for law enforcement that provides officers with a GPS-enabled map of points of interest in their immediate vacinity. Points of interest consist of information maintained by agencies in their own records management systems: the location of recent crimes, the addresses of sex offenders, parolees, gang members, or wanted individuals. With P3i, officers receive location-relevant information securely in the field. P3i is an always-available, secure gateway to law enforcement data systems supporting proactive policing in the community.

P3i includes the following key features:

- location-aware map that updates as an officer moves with police points of interest

- support for multiple points of interest types including: Gang Members, Parolees, Sex Offenders, Active Warrants, and Incident Reports

- multiple levels of filtering to allow map data to be tailored to an officer's preferences or patrol needs

- integration with agency record management systems (may require additional server components)

- integration with agency mugshot databases

- address search

- oblique aerial photographs and Streetview images

- field reporting tools for collection of contact and invalid address information

- automatic position reporting for AVL

- multiple agency access

P3i can also provide members of the public with access to an array of public information including registered sex offenders, recent crime reports, or active warrants. When operating in public mode P3i will display points of interest but not provide access to internal data systems, AVL, unpublished records, or reporting capabilities. Through multiple agency support, officers can quickly view public data for other agencies or enter into data sharing partnerships by simply registering the device with another agency.

Today thousands of people will be using smartphones and tablets to find a nearby movie, Thai restaurant, or book store. With P3i, law enforcement officers can do the same thing to increase their awareness of points of interest near them and engage in more proactive policing.

NOTE: by default P3i users background location services to find police points of interest near your location. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. You can turn off location services or decrease battery use by adjusting GPS accuracy in the P3i settings menu.
