Abstract

The improper use of law enforcement and data hinders the crime-fighting capabilities of government agencies. Police personnel lack in sharing information with other agencies. To overcome the challenges of handling excessive information, COPLINK, an integrated information and knowledge management environment was introduced. COPLINK helps in capturing, analyzing, visualizing and sharing law enforcement-related information in social and organizational contexts. COPLINK consists of two main components, COPLINK Connect whic has been designed to allow diverse police departments to share data seamlessly through an easy to use interface and COPLINK Detect which uncovers various types of criminal associations that exist in police databases.
