Real Time Crime Center Gets Major Donation

December 11, 2019 – In its support of the EBR law enforcement agencies, General Informatics is donating its state-of-the-art Real Time Crime Management Platform – 365 RealTime software free of cost to the City of Baton Rouge and the East Baton Rouge Parish. General Informatics is also donating one year of customer support. The total package retails for $495,000.


“This advanced system allows officers to gather live data through a streamlined process and allows witnesses to contribute any information or photos they may have,” said Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome. “365 RealTime grants officers access to information before they arrive on scene. 365 RealTime will help our officers respond and prepare for emergencies and protect our community in the most efficient and effective way possible.”


The 365 RealTime system provides a single pane for all public safety agencies to monitor and act on emergency incidents, 911 calls, shots fired, alerts, assets and investigative information in real time. It better prepares officers as they head out to protect people and property. Through a mobile application, it alerts the officers close to the incident and allows the public to assist in solving crime by uploading information and pictures to the platform.


“The 365 RealTime system will allow public safety agencies to collaborate and assess situations in real time, which will help Baton Rouge Police be more effective in finding solutions to our crime problems,” said BRPD Chief Murphy Paul. “Other cities have spent upwards of a half a million dollars to establish systems similar to this one, and we’re thankful for General Informatics’ generous donation in support of EBR law enforcement agencies.”


“General Informatics is invested and committed to the progress and growth of our city. We want Baton Rouge be considered a safe city so more investment and talent can call it home. 365 RealTime is the most advanced and connected law enforcement platform. Our engineers are proud to equip our officers with the best technology at no cost to the taxpayer. Other cities have spent millions to set up something similar,” said Mo Vij, CEO of General Informatics. “Our hope is that that as 365 RealTime starts getting used, we will see the impact of technology-assisted policing as an efficient and effective approach in keeping our city safe”.
