Police Go High-Tech

Gail Kerr has a good story in today's Tennessean about the police department's use of technology for monitoring crime and allocating officers and resources accordingly. According to Kerr, this approach has led to an increased understanding of trouble areas in the city and how to address them.

One point implied, but not mentioned, in the article is the importance of reporting crime when it occurs, either by calling (615) 862-8600 or, in an emergency, by calling 911. This ensures that the police department has as accurate an assessment as possible of crime in the city.

For a glimpse at some of the technology used by the police, check out the interactive crime map.
