US BI and advanced analytics software provider SAS has signed an agreement with Trinidadian police for the deployment of software to prevent crime, the former said in a statement.
According to the release, law enforcement officials will counter gangs and drug activity, kidnapping and other crimes with SAS's intelligence management system, Memex.
The software will be used by some 40 investigators and analysts in the Criminal Intelligence Unit (CIU), Special Branch and the Organized Crime, Narcotics and Fraud Bureau (OCNFB).
Memex software and services enable law enforcement agencies to manage and retrieve intelligence for preventing various types of crime.
The solution provides a single-source portal for analyzing SAR and other intelligence sources in one platform, using the same data mining tools and user interfaces, rather than having to log on and off different systems, said Brent Meade, IT head at Trinidad and Tobago's police service.
