Microsoft promotes Azure Government at US Police Chiefs showcase

The International Association of Chiefs of Police Annual Conference and Exposition is officially underway in San Diego California, and Microsoft is in attendance and is sponsoring the event for a chance to show off the power of Azure Government (via Geek Wire.)

According to GeekWire, Microsoft has signed 23 states’ Criminal Justice Information Services agreements. An example of this is in  Santa Cruz, Calif where PredPol is using Azure Government to predict places, dates and times where crimes are most likely to occur. Another example is Genetec, in Montreal, Canada where Azure is used to provide video streaming, cataloging to the Detroit Police Department. In a statement, Michael Donlan, vice president, U.S. state and local government at Microsoft highlighted the benefits of Azure, and said:

“Our cloud powers real-time, intelligence-led, first-response capabilities that enable law enforcement to do more, and achieve more, for the citizens they serve — today and into the future”
