Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $419,804)

The FY 2018 Technology Innovation for Public Safety (TIPS) Addressing Precipitous Increases in Crime is part of the Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) Suite of programs, which is focused on reducing violent crime. The TIPS Program is designed to enable strategic information sharing across crime-fighting agencies with identified partnerships to address specific local or regional crime problems. Often these efforts will require a multidisciplinary response involving law enforcement, analysts and/or investigators, information technology staff, public safety and/or first responders, adjudications and/or courts, corrections, human services organizations, and other stakeholders.

The Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection will use the grant funds to implement and populate a commercial off the shelf (COTS) software Uniform Crime Reporting repository with geographic information system (GIS) capabilities. The goal is for federal, state and local law enforcement to use this system to direct available investigative and patrol resources more efficiently and effectively. CA/NCF
