“ Protecting the public and ensuring the safety of our citizens is our top priority. IBM’s digital video surveillance solution will help enhance our ability to fight crime, while providing our deputies with a tool to improve training and reduce costs. ”
– Tom Jenkins, Commander, Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department
Santa Barbara Sheriff's Department (SBSD)
Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department (SBSD) had to find a way to balance rising law enforcement demands and increasingly tight budgets–all the while keeping the public safe.
SBSD needed to transform the way it gathered and managed crime and incident-related data to get more out of its scarce resources and to protect itself from legal vulnerabilities.
SBSD engaged IBM to build a highly innovative crime data management system whose automation, flexibility and security provide a quantum leap in effectiveness while providing a solid deterrent to fraudulent legal actions.
