SAS Enterprise Solution Aid Bermuda Police Service In Intelligence, Crime & Case Management
Nationwide deployment builds upon existing Memex intelligence platform, gives 500 BPS officers access to end-to-end police system
The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) will deploy a new SAS Enterprise Law Enforcement solution for custody, intelligence, crime, and case management.
The Bermuda Police Service has long used the Memex intelligence platform for its Intelligence Unit. The BPS recently rebuilt its Custody facilities and environment as it furthers its PACE (Police and Criminal Evidence Act) compliance. BPS explored an enterprise solution for its entire booking and case management process, and selected SAS' Memex product line. BPS officials had a chance to observe a similar system being deployed at the Surrey (UK) Police Force before its decision.
Coupled with the fusion center expertise and intelligence management lineage of Memex, SAS, through this solution, offers a meaningful opportunity for crime prevention and threat disruption through accurate, timely information and valuable foresight. Regardless of data sources, the solution allows for a solid operational and analytic foundation to enhance community and officer safety, and quality of life for the citizenry.
"Our ability to grow and expand with SAS was a key factor in our decision to bring in additional SAS state-of-the-art technology to our policing model," said BPS Commissioner Michael A. DeSilva. "As a result, our entire police service will now have access to the SAS Enterprise system to tackle violence, gang-related activity and other crimes. They will have one global view of people in custody and the critical information they need to best perform their jobs."
The SAS system enables BPS officials to review a person's entire file - from custody, intelligence and criminal records - through a single-source portal and to link the information to discern patterns and connections. It manages the data in a case file that streamlines information for the entire legal process.
