Washington College, MD Helps to Fight Crime via the Web

January 28, 2009 -- The Washington College Department of Sociology and Anthropology, in conjunction with the Washington College Geographic Information System (GIS) Program, was awarded a grant from the Maryland Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention to assist the Division of Parole and Probation (DPP) in a statewide effort to build an Internet GIS application for law enforcement and criminal justice agencies. The grant award aligns with Governor O'Malley’s emphasis on reducing crime by improving monitoring of violent repeat offenders and reducing recidivism.

Washington College retained geographIT, located in Lancaster, PA, to develop and implement the statewide web mapping software using ESRI’s ArcGIS Server technology coupled with geographIT’s mapJazz™ development framework. The web site enables over 700 DPP case officers and numerous law enforcement agencies to search, retrieve, analyze, map and download data about individuals serving parole or probation. Powerful tools include viewing the mug shots associated with a case, performing ad hoc searches across multiple database columns, performing radial searches to retrieve cases within a user specified distance of an address, and downloading query results in an Excel file. This web site extends search options, analysis, and flexible data distribution far beyond the legacy mainframe system traditionally used by the DPP.
