Accelerate the Intelligence Cycle

 Alpine Crime Analysis Portal (ACAP)


We understand that resources are limited, expectations are high, and margins for error are thin in law enforcement.  ACAP was designed to help your team accelerate the intelligence cycle – minus the high costs, complexity, and risk often associated with law enforcement technologies.

What is ACAP?

ACAP is a managed crime analysis portal that helps your team address the challenges and roadblocks outlined below. ACAP aims to automate many of the “data massaging” tasks that consume up to 60% of your team’s time – so they spend more time fighting crime, and less time crunching data.

ACAP resides within your data center, with Alpine taking responsibility for maintenance of the ACAP environment (i.e. no special technical resources will need to be acquired or hired).

The ACAP solution consists of the following components:

The Intelligence Cycle

Law Enforcement Challenges

  • Limited resources

Data to Actionable Intelligence

Roadblocks

  • Different methods of collecting data among departments or precincts
  • Many forms of data (database, spreadsheet, post-it notes, physical file/jacket, etc.)
  • Large volumes of data
  • Separating relevant groups, individuals, attributes, and assets from those of less interest.
  • Duplicate records and conflicting data
  • Questionable origin of data
