About SMART Crime Mapping
SMART’s Crime Mapping assists crime analysts in law enforcement agencies with
mapping, visualizing, and analyzing crime incident patterns. It is a key
component of crime analysis and policing strategies. Mapping crime allows crime
analysts to identify crime hot spots, along with other trends and patterns.
Over the years SMART has evolved to meet the developing needs of the law
enforcement community, and with the guidance and suggestions of our
customers we continue to make our software better and more intuitive.
