Chorus’ revolutionary software has been enabling its police users to quickly get answers from data to massively increase the speed and effectiveness of intelligence operations and criminal investigations.

It’s ability to cleanse, combine and connect call data, ANPR and device downloads and visualise it all in an intuitive way to rapidly generate lines of enquiry and answer key investigative questions has been making a big difference to those pioneers already using it.

Here are 10 best-use examples:

  •          1. Manhunts and K&E

Instant mapping of call data using cell sites to assist with locating wanted people, identify strongholds, co-conspirators and vehicles of interest.

  •         2. Mispers 

Quickly establish a pattern of life, movement of missing persons and their associates and location of key addresses to locate and safeguard vulnerable people.

  •       3. Past and present movement of suspects 

Investigate past and current movement of suspects to link them to offences, show meetings and associations between individuals and direct overt or covert resources to attend locations, execute warrants or make arrest attempts.

  •         4.Disclosure

Especially for cases involving sexual misconduct or domestic abuse, Chorus can be used to search all SMS messages, Whatsapp and other online chat to identify key words and phrases that could prove pivotal in cases whilst satisfying disclosure requirements.

  •         5.Vehicle identification

Add key locations to a map such as ANPR cameras. Compare call data and ANPR to identify a previously unknown vehicle from movements of a phone.

  •        6.Warrant applications

Use evidence from Chorus to support all court warrants such as extradition, premises searches and bench warrants for arrest of subjects who fail to appear.

  •        7.Directing CCTV Enquiries

Use mapped call and ANPR data to follow the movements of a wanted or missing person to help direct CCTV enquiries.

  •        8.County Line Phone Attribution

Attribute numbers and devices to subjects and keep a master phone database up-to-date. Adding new data to the master will instantly identify if an entity has appeared before and if an old line has been reactivated.

  •         9. Co-location of Phones and GPS-enabled Devices

Combine and overlay multiple sets of call data to demonstrate co-location of clean phones and ‘dirty’ phones to attribute devices or other GPS devices.

  •          10.Event Schedules
