BAIR Analytics and Esri recently partnered to integrate Esri’s powerful GIS technologies into BAIR’s intelligence-led policing solutions, ATACRAIDS and Raidsonline.com. ATACRAIDS is a law enforcement only solution that enables information sharing, facilitates mapping and analysis with the outcome of providing commanders and officers the ability to develop better informed strategies to fight crime. Raidsonline.com displays agency defined crime information via an interactive national crime mapping solution that includes tips and an alerting system. BAIR Analytics provides Raidsonline.com as a free service to law enforcement and the public.
ATACRAIDS and Raidsonline.com were originally developed using Google’s mapping API. Recently, BAIR re-programmed the applications to leverage Esri’s more powerful GIS-focused technologies.
“Incorporating Esri’s technologies into our products is an exciting next step for us,” Says Sean Bair, President of BAIR Analytics. “Esri’s deep understanding of GIS is evident in their products. With Esri’s technologies at the core, our products will significantly improve how law enforcement fights crime.”
Esri enables BAIR to make crime information and analysis available to users through a unique and interactive GIS experience. Using this new capability, ATACRAIDS and Raidsonline.com can now display useful demographic information spatially so law enforcement and the public can look at socio-economic factors as they relate to crime.
Lew Nelson, Esri’s Global Law Enforcement Manager, stated, “Esri is extremely pleased to have Bair Analytics join our Public Safety Team in offering their excellent product line on an Esri platform. We have long been aware of their industry expertise in crime and intelligence analytics and their dedicated user community. We look forward to a strong relationship with them in the years ahead”.
