British Transport Police is set to roll out a new system that it hopes will improve the reliability of its information and intelligence reporting.
The technology will allow officers to search through a single interface across different systems containing both structured and unstructured data.
The aim is to make it easier to see emerging crime trends and potential threats, as well as enabling better management of resources.
Assistant chief constable Alan Pacey said, "Our aim is to improve our existing intelligence research capability and as a result, deliver a better service to the railway community. Early signs are promising. We look forward to realising the full potential of this application as we move forward."
The British Transport Police deals with crime on Britain's railways, which see around six million passengers a day.
It is using the Endeca for Force Intelligence software to manage its information. The technology is built on an architecture that takes data from numerous source systems into a single unified index, making analysis easier.
