Imagine a 911 call with a suspect fleeing the scene. Officers in the field cannot be traced. But through video surveillance of the area, a behind-the-scenes eye can follow the pursuer to the next location, and another off-duty officer’s body camera can locate the suspect. Then, the analyst performs a federated query to identify the suspect’s home address and notifies the cops that the suspect is heading to that address. Authorities can quickly communicate the situation to officers, secure suspects, and document video evidence to close cases faster.
