When looking at law enforcement and how they are able to be one step ahead of the criminals. What processes are being used? How are they able to understand spatial data and use GIS as a tool to stop or even prevent crime is a very important. Looking at the City of Fayetteville police department, the crime analysis department is using GIS to help the officers look for criminals, track crime statics and even prevent future crimes all with GIS. The officers understand that it is more than a map and the capabilities for them in their daily routines give them an advantage over the modern day criminal. Crime is just not about breaking and entering, murder and assault it is much more complex and being able to look at the different areas in the community to see the different crimes that are taking place is very important. By using GIS the officers are able to locate the criminals by the towers of the cell phone usage, also study the spatial patterns that might take place in a particular area and even map out a crime ring all by using GIS. This spatial tool is at the focus of meetings and how they are taking a spatial look at crime. When using maps in this type of process, the police are able to understand the nature of the crimes being committed and have evidence on what took place. GIS is the capturing, managing, analyzing and displaying information, this very system allows for criminals to be apprehend quicker, crime to be lowered and communities that have high levels or crime to have different programs in place to make the changes to stop these types of crimes from happen.
