“The dashboard,” instantaneously mines data from the NYPD’s vast collection of arrest records, emergency 911 calls, more than 3,000 security cameras, license plate readers and portable radiation detectors and aggregates it into a user-friendly, readable form in the control room.
Eventually, that data will be able to be seen in real time by officers on laptops in their squad cars and on mobile devices as they walk their beat.
Rolled out six months ago, the department began work to create the system back in 2009. At the moment the system is mainly used within the counter-terrorism bureau.
Officers were involved throughout the process with programmers from Microsoft, offering input on what they needed during an emergency.
