Volume 3 Issue 1 | October 2011

Volume 3, Issue 1 of the Geography and Public Safety newsletter seeks to promote the broader use of GIS by law enforcement.  It highlights ways in which community policing, problem solving, community outreach, and partnerships can be enhanced by GIS. While mapping for the purpose of “putting cops on the dots” remains a core focus of GIS in law enforcement, more needs to be said about the versatility of GIS and how it can be deployed to improve effectiveness and efficiencies across all law enforcement functions. Featured articles include a lead article about the “full spectrum” use of GIS by police as well as one about the Dallas Police Department’s innovative use of GIS to define Targeted Area Action Grids (TAAGs) to enhance community outreach focused on residential and business burglaries.
