KCSO, KPD Captain Bobby Hubbs and Crime Analysis Supervisor Jonne Crick use ATACRAIDS Geo Profiling Tool to Identify Marauders
Knoxville, TN, June 11, 2014 - The Knoxville County Sheriff's Office and Knoxville Police Department
have been up to something big.
So big, in fact, they are being recognized by the Knoxville News Station for their ability to fight crime, "one mouse click at a time."
Using the BAIR Analytics ATACRAIDS Application, Captain Hubbs of KCSO identified a crime series occurring in a local neighborhood.
The ATACRAIDS Geo Profiling tool tracked the marauders focal point to the surrounding neighborhoods.
Using additional MO information, such as the structure targeted, the objects taken from the crime scene, and the dates/times the incidents occurred, Captain Hubbs
concludes that there is more than one suspect, and that the suspects are probably juveniles.
Using the information he
learned from ATACRAIDS
, Captain Hubbs
can send his
officers "fishing" for the criminals.
At the time the article went to print none of the vehicles had been recovered, but Captain Hubbs
has a pretty good idea of where they went.
Knoxville New Station cites Hubbs explanation that the vehicles may have been taken to a car crusher "to garner cash for the metal."
Besides utilizing BAIR Analytics ATACRAIDS and ATAC Workstation applications, KCSO
also utilize BAIR's
free product, RAIDS Online.
Several other TN agencies, including Anderson County
, Loudoun County
, Roane County
, Rutherford County
, the University of Tennessee, and Waverly, followed in KCSO
and KPD's footsteps and now share their data with their public populations.
"The domino effect followed when surrounding agencies saw [KCSO and KPD] didn't get a lot of negative feedback," Captain Hubbs
reported to Know News reporter, Jamie Satterfield.
