Empowering Communities to End Domestic Violence
Addressing many of the problems that underpin community safety begins with a willingness to collaborate with our fellow agencies and community partners. When it comes to public service and safety, technology can be the tool that brings stakeholders together.
Big Mountain Data has been working with Superion for the past three years on exploring the many ways data can play in addressing one of the most dangerous calls to law enforcement: domestic violence, also known as “intimate partner violence.”
The societal cost of intimate partner violence is staggering. It is a universal problem that impacts every community in the United States. For law enforcement, it is especially onerous when measured in law officer safety (figure 1), expense, and hours dedicated to keeping some of our most vulnerable citizens safe.
Based on pioneering work that has been done in several counties, towns, and cities in the United States to address intimate partner violence, Superion is piloting programs that are proven to work. These programs include many partners and serve to bring communities together to help address some of the most pressing public safety issues today.
The cornerstone of these programs rests on proper data collection, reporting, and classification. Sharing data easily with the agencies and partners who are aligned to address tough social problems is key to making a difference in our communities.
Superion is leading the way in this fight. We are proud to co-innovate with Superion and its customers on this important mission. We have the tools; we just need to summon the courage to make progress on this regrettable scourge in our society. Let’s design a future without violence in our homes.
