Common definitions for the term ‘essence’ center on the intrinsic nature or indispensable quality of something. Its character. The heart and soul. Substance. Principle. We want to share with the readers of this blog what the ‘essence’ of our law enforcement solution, Street Smart, really is in a 12-part series of blogs throughout 2018. The double SS within the word eSSence helps to show that Street Smart exists within the term itself.
As you can see from the graphic, the author of the series and visionary of Street Smart supports the concept that the essence of the revolutionizing solution has no single predominant feature; instead, it is surrounded by a set of properties or characteristics that help agencies become heroes to their respective jurisdictions. Safe communities are a result of speedily sharing information, crowdsourcing answers to problems, supporting quick line-level decisions, and understanding the value of intelligence-led-policing.
Street Smart was designed from the street level challenges of the front lines of law enforcement, for the simplified use by officers/deputies, detectives and analysts to have true, real-time actionable information and intelligence sharing to solve crimes while they are fresh. Results have proven that solving crimes fast supports officer safety, crime victim reduction, and community trust.
Please join us over the next 12 months as our blog series takes us through the “The eSSence of Street Smart”.
