Microsoft Corporation and the New York Police Department have partnered on a new computer system that will pull together data from different safety systems. This will give law enforcement more real-time information about what is happening at any given moment in time.
This new initiative is called “Domain Awareness System.” The city of New York will get 30% of Microsoft’s future sales of the system to other cities and police departments. The information gathered includes existing cameras, 911 calls, previous crime reports, and other forensic-related technology.
Below is a video of New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg announcing the partnership.
