Joe Cadillic has posted the third part of his series on “VACCINE” on MassPrivateI. If you missed the first two parts of his series, you might want to start with them:
In Part 3, Joe not only goes into more detail about how many universities are collaborating with DHS on VACCINE (and why is Boy Scouts of America involved?!), but he also talks about other programs that you may never have heard about (I certainly haven’t): GeoVISTA, CrimeViz, SensePlace2, Jigsaw, GARI MERGE, cgSARVA and Scatterblog. And did you know about VALET? Joe writes:
VALET helps cops spy on community events and public transportation.
- Identify crime hotspots and anomalies.
- Analyze trends and patterns in criminal activity through time (by day, week, month or year).
- Forecast crime hotspots to assist in the development of preventive measures and in resource planning and allocation.
- Identify potential correlations among multiple datasets (for example, census data, daily weather reports, bus routes, zoning tracts, and community events calendars) against criminal, traffic and civil incident data.
VALET can also be used to spy on social media, public transportation etc.
