officers travel and patrol in an area, detailed

discover connections and trends . Video feeds,
biometric data and evidence can be stored in
Palantir w ith a geo-reference and data time
group for geographic and temporal analysis.

Resolve entities to give a single common view
of an entity. Palantir allows all this data to be
stored with pictures, summaries, notes and
geo-referenced locations to be accessed by any
authorized person at any time, so you don't have
to relearn the area anew whenever someone
moves to a new unit or department, and so new
officers and transfers can quickly get up to speed .

Pa/antir integrates a variety of data sources at law enforcement
deployments, including Suspicious Activity Reports, Records Management
Systems, Criminal Records, Mugshots, Driving Records, Jail Records,
