Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $500,000)

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 Clark County Social Service will use BJA funds to help with the collaboration of the Clark County Frequent Users of System Engagement (CCFUSE) permanent supportive housing program that uses a data-informed matching protocol to identify the most frequent users of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department – Detention Services Division (LVMPD-DSD) criminal justice system. Currently, the CCFUSE data partitioning model evaluates data from LVMPD-DSD and the Homeless Management Information System. This program, a collaborative effort between LVMPD-DSD, Clark County Social Service, and Bitfocus, Inc., proposes to build upon the demonstrated success of the CCFUSE data partitioning model, and develop the technology to evaluate multi-jurisdictional criminal justice data to identify the most frequent users of the entire criminal justice system in Clark County who are experiencing homelessness in order to provide a fully community-wide coordinated response to reduce recidivism rates of incarceration, decrease caseloads of prosecutors, and improve public safety.
