CREST aims to equip law enforcement agencies with an IoT-enabled ecosystem of advanced intelligence, operations, and investigation technologies for their fight against crime and terrorism. It’s objective is to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of LEAs intelligence, operation, and investigation capabilities. CREST aims to achieve this through the automated detection, identification, assessment, fusion, and correlation of evidence acquired from data streams.
CREST will realise this objective by developing an innovative prediction, prevention, operation, and investigation platform. Here, pertinent information can be shared to different stakeholders in an interactive manner tailored to their needs.
The developed platform will allow for:
(i) crime and terrorism prediction and prevention through the generation of automatic early warning alerts based on the assessment of threats detected using targeted monitoring, tracking, and analytics technologies;
(ii) improved operational capabilities enabled by an IoT ecosystem that will facilitate adaptive and dynamic mission planning and navigation ;
(iii) improved situational awareness through advanced visual analytics, mobile applications, and projections in interactive augmented reality environments; and
(iv) enhanced investigation capabilities by increasing the confidence and trustworthiness of information sharing and digital evidence exchange based on block chain technologies.
Under the CREST project, VSE’s task will be to develop public awareness and provide citizen training.
Concretely, VSE will produce citizen-centred and oriented training and educational materials for guidance on: (1) how to prepare (2) what to do and (3) how to develop resilience, in the event of a criminal or terrorist attack.
