Real Time Crime Center
The Memphis Police Department’s award winning Real Time Crime Center is “state of the art.” The MPD has gone to great lengths to build the best facility in the country for monitoring, evaluating, and predicting criminal activity. We pledge to continually develop new strategies designed to interdict criminal behavior in our community through maximization of available technologies and in-house development.
The RTCC presents the public with an unprecedented view of crime-related data, which helps citizens better understand their environment and what is happening in their immediate neighborhood. Since crime knows no boundaries, we have expanded ours. The RTCC facilitates inter-agency cooperation between city, county, state, and federal law enforcement through a data and resource-sharing initiative that will ultimately involve agencies within a 75 mile radius of Memphis.
The RTCC has hosted visitors from agencies from across the nation and around the world, and we have shared with them our best practices. We believe many of our systems—including Blue Crush TM and our new CyberWatch program—are serving as models for the rest of the country.
