SLMPD Real Time Crime Center

Phase 1 of the RTCC project included the integration of surveillance camera technology, license plates recognition (LPR) technology, Computer Aided Dispatching (CAD) and ShotSpotter. The RTCC is focused on monitoring, deterring and evaluating criminal activity in real-time with the help of the advanced technology in the center. The SLMPD deploys highly visible cameras that are easily detectable in an effort to deter criminal activity.

The RTCC provides investigative support to first responders on scenes, as well as to Detectives handling follow-up investigations. The Detectives assigned to the RTCC gather and disseminate information in real-time from disparate databases in order to improve both situational awareness and the safety of the SLMPD Officers.
