CrimeView from The Omega Group is an extension to ArcGIS that allows for the detailed analysis of crime incidents, known offenders, or field investigations within any geographic area. CrimeView automatically imports calls for service and incident–reporting data into the ArcGIS mapping platform so that the information being viewed is always current. The Los Angeles Unified School District Police Department is currently using CrimeView to pinpoint hot spots of activity in order to allocate resources more efficiently. Keeping facilities safe for students is also a priority for North Carolina State University police. North Carolina State has been using CrimeView to monitor not only where crime has occurred but also where incidents are clustered within each structure.
