COPLINK: A case of intelligent analysis and knowledge management

Artificial Intelligence Lab, Department of MIS, University of Arizona / Law enforcement agencies across the United States have begun to focus on innovative knowledge management
technologies to aid in the analysis of criminal information. The use of such technologies can serve as
intelligence tools to combat criminal activity by aiding in case investigation or even by predicting criminal
activity. Funded by the National Institute of Justice, the University of Arizonaâ s Artificial Intelligence Lab has
teamed with the Tucson Police Department (TPD) to develop the Coplink Concept Space application, which
serves to uncover relationships between different types of information currently existing in TPDâ s records
management system. A small-scale field study involving real law enforcement personnel indicates that the use
of Coplink Concept Space can reduce the time spent on the investigative task of linking criminal information
as well as provide strong arguments for expanded development of similar knowledge management systems in
support of law enforcement.
