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 New Mexico Second Judicial District Attorney's Office will partner with the New Mexico Department of Public Safety Law
Enforcement Records Bureau (NMDPS-LERB) and the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology’s (NM Tech) Institute for Complex Additive Systems Analysis (ICASA) to develop and implement the Criminal Data Hub, a data tool for the consolidation and aggregation of crime and offender data. By using data analysis to distinguish high risk offenders from low risk offenders, the DA's Office will strategize and implement optimal criminal justice interventions to lower rates of the identified crimes. The overall goal of the project is to develop a shared data tool aimed at decreasing crimes of focus through identifying and profiling high risk offenders. Crimes of focus are homicide, robberies, and auto thefts. CA/NCF
