Objective helps Police keep suspect behind bars

  • 20 June, 2007 10:34

<p>Thanks to Objective’s leading edge search capabilities and Police
cooperation across the country, West Australian and Tasmanian
Police have found the evidence needed to charge a suspect for a
string of serious and previously unsolved crimes.</p>
<p>On receiving an urgent request for information on a suspect being
held in custody in Hobart, the WA Police Crime Files Co-ordination
Team was able to take to action immediately. Using the limited
information supplied, the team used Objective to find unsolved case
information and, by using additional Objective search technology, was
able to compile a comprehensive portfolio of information about
the suspect.</p>
<p>The various case files were quickly linked in Objective, physical
documents located and converted to PDF and all information provided
electronically to the Tasmanian Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB).
The turnaround time to complete the request was just 38 minutes,
resulting in a number of serious charges being laid against the
suspect. Police say more charges are pending the suspect’s
extradition back to WA.</p>
<p>Feedback from Hobart CIB was very positive and the result would not
have been possible without Objective's ‘intelligence’ capability.
WA Police say several other suspects have also been charged for
various unsolved crimes using the same methodology and cold case
data, courtesy of WAPOL’s Objective solution.</p>
