In an increasingly connected world, the success rate of crime fighting is growing. This is due to a shifting paradigm from secrecy to collaboration.

Many businesses understand the value of collaboration when it comes to making business decisions. They use tools like Facebook, Twitter, Chatter, YouTube, etc. to share information about their companies quickly to make decisions. Crime-fighting networks like 3VR's CrimeDex allow businesses to send alerts across a wide range of crime fighting networks like NCORCA and others. quickly and easily. If an organization have 3VR's Video Intelligence Platform it is even easier to share case alerts by including location, video clips, and photographs of suspects.
