The latest issue of the Geography and Public Safety newsletter focuses on promoting the broader use of GIS by law enforcement. The newsletter, which is a joint effort by the National Institute of Justice and the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, highlights ways in which community policing, problem solving, community outreach and partnerships can be enhanced by GIS. While mapping for the purpose of "putting cops on the dots" remains a core focus of GIS in law enforcement, more needs to be said about the versatility of GIS and how it can be deployed to improve effectiveness and efficiencies across all law enforcement functions. Article topics include the "full spectrum" use of GIS by police and the Dallas Police Department's innovative use of GIS to define Targeted Area Action Grids designed to enhance community outreach focused on residential and business burglaries.
