Maps and spatial analysis have long helped police understand where and when crime is occurring so that they can deploy resources more effectively. But today's location-based technology is doing much more. Law enforcement agencies can now use Esri's GIS-powered maps and apps to support executive decision-making, manage field operations, power real-time situational awareness, and drive community engagement efforts.
