CFS Analytics Demo

November 8, 2018  |   2:00 - 3:00 pm ET

Calls for service (CFS) drive the demand for public safety resources, making CFS data the foundation for understanding operational demands and strategic priorities within police agencies.
CFS Analytics is a tool developed by RTI International to automate the analysis of this important data source. Leveraging the value of CFS data, decision makers are able to more effectively understand their agency’s data to make better-informed business, resource and community decisions.
Please join us for a free demo on using CFS Analytics to easily unlock the full capability of your data.
