We’re more than just a technology company. We believe we can use our real-time arrest data to help prevent an escalation of substance abuse — and essentially support a community in its harm reduction policy. Why does it matter? Drug overdose deaths in the United States are at record numbers, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
Biometrica supports the use of real-time criminal data and analysis, and algorithmically automated continuous monitoring to help identify behavior relating to the sale and trafficking of illegal drugs, clusters, spikes and patterns of distribution, cross pollination between TCOs, MLOs, local street gangs and other criminal organizations, and the direct and indirect problems caused by the proliferation of this collective criminal behavior. Specifically relating to substance abuse, we look to use our data and analytics to support and assist in the work of public health and public safety initiatives, community support groups, population health organizations, and those working on harm reduction, prevention and treatment in making data-driven decisions that could lead to more efficient resource allocation and community investment, while identifying populations and individuals in need and stratifying risk.
