Fresno Police Department Is Taking Policing Into The Future In A Real Time Crime Center

The Fresno Police Department is taking law enforcement into the future in a Real Time Crime Center they unveiled Tuesday.
It’s a technological marvel, rivaling real time crime centers you might see in New York City, Chicago or Los Angeles. And it came much cheaper, with a price tag of zero dollars. But it’s so good, some wonder how to keep their lives private without staying inside their homes.
For police officers, a 911 call can mean a life threatening situation is seconds away, but what’s behind the door they approach may be a mystery.
“Our officers oftentimes are expected to know the unknown, see the unseen, and then make split second decisions with limited facts,” said Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer.
Chief Dyer is hoping to shed light on the unknown and unseen by using his newest crime-fighting tool — the Real Time Crime Center. The most serious 911 calls will be funneled here, where officers will use the latest technology to fill in some of the blanks.
