FTSE 250 strategic outsourcing company MITIE Group plc has launched the security sector’s first ‘all-incident’ crime mapping software through its MITIE Total Security Management division.
By using a bespoke data hub and intelligence sharing and analytics platform, the software blends external data sources (such as police crime data). This is then analysed for patterns and trends by incident type, sector, region, county, district, neighbourhood and site.
The software acts as an online, UK-wide registry of MITIE’s recorded security incidents and police crime data, in turn providing the most up-to-date intelligence and analytics for security support.
MITIE will use the information gathered to make risk-based decisions around the analytics and findings for its clients.
Intelligence designed to influence resource levels
Bob Forsyth, managing director of MITIE’s Total Security Management (TSM) business, commented: “This is one of the most exciting developments the security sector will see this year. It enables us, as a security provider, to provide our clients with intelligence that influences their resource levels and overall security strategy based on accurate and real information.”
Forsyth added: “Incident data will be a key driver in decision-making based on factual trend analysis. The days of assumption are over. ”
MITIE’s TSM business secures over 33,000 locations across the UK and Europe, capturing thousands of incidents each month. The incident data is collected by operators at MiTec, the company’s industry-leading CAT II, BS 5979 Alarm Receiving Centre and technology hub based in Northern Ireland.
