Prisons Intelligence Analysis
Prisons are not renowned for the law-abiding nature of their citizens, and the pressurised environment of the wing makes the temptation to commit further offences too strong to resist for many inmates. Contraband in prisons is rife. Firearms, drugs, mobile phones and SIM cards, money and other such items can spell danger for staff officers and other inmates. The formation of gangs behind bars needs to be kept in check. And all this requires an unblinking eye on the goings on, particularly the associations, within the prison walls.
Using Xanalys’s Link Explorer connected with the prisons intelligence database enables prison officers to closely track inmates and even their associates on the outside world, plotting relationships and linking them with criminal actions and illegal items. Visual Querying highlights common links shared with other inmates; some of these links may be indirect through associates, addresses or telephones.
As timelines can also be plotted, the history of an event can be easily visualised highlighting incidents of interest, sequences and related activity. This temporal analysis can, for example, flag up a link between a discovered smuggled object and a visitor/inmate which without the power of database analysis would almost certainly have gone unnoticed and been lost to time.
Xanalys’s prisons intelligence solutions help to keep prisons a safer place for both prison staff and inmates.
