The ePoolice Project (Early Pursuit Against Organized Crime Using EnvirOnmental Scanning, the Law and IntelligenCE Systems) project is funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7).
The list of partners working on the project alongside UNICRI includes law enforcement officials and academic experts specialized in matters of organized crime and criminal networks. The overall aim of the project is to create an international environmental scanning system dedicated to countering criminal networks.
The environmental scanning systems will operate by drawing on a repository of all relevant information and knowledge, including scanned information and derived, learned or hypothesized knowledge, as well as the metadata needed for credibility and confidence assessment, traceability, and privacy protection management.
Specifically, the system will support:
The ePOOLICE environmental scanning system will provide a systematic overview of the surrounding environment to better appreciate, assess and anticipate an emerging crime, by monitoring the environment and capturing in real-time relevant information present in heterogeneous sources, including law enforcement analysis reports, governmental information, web, social media, news, academia, non-governmental and international organizations, and subject matter experts.
