LexisNexis(R) Launches New Social Media Investigative Solution for Law
Social Media Monitor Allows Agencies to Identify and Prevent
WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwired) -- 10/15/13 -- LexisNexis(R) Risk
Solutions today announced it has expanded its capabilities to assist
law enforcement officials with investigations and critical incidents
such as gang violence, drug dealing, crimes against children and
human trafficking through the use of social media. Social Media
Monitor, a new capability in the LexisNexis Accurint(R) for Law
Enforcement platform that is powered by the technology of
DigitalStakeout(R), allows agencies to discover risks and threats by
leveraging social media to provide actionable intelligence.
"Social media is a critical tool for crime prevention and detection,
especially since it crosses all demographics," said Haywood J.
Talcove, chief executive officer, Government, LexisNexis Risk
Solutions. "Some individuals even use these platforms to post
evidence or intent of criminal activity. LexisNexis is dedicated to
providing law enforcement professionals the solutions to meet their
public safety missions and is proud to be able to offer Social Media
Monitor to help officers control or prevent dangerous situations."
According to a LexisNexis survey of over 1,200 active law enforcement
officers, four out of five utilize social media sites to help with
investigations and three of four non-users intend to begin using
social media for investigations this year. To meet this growing
demand, Social Media Monitor helps to unlock the value of big data
from social media, providing the ability to discover risks, threats
and gain actionable intelligence. This new capability can alert
officers to potential areas of concern and help them identify posts
and/or tweets within specific geographical locations. By entering a
few search terms, law enforcement personnel are provided a social
canvas within minutes, adding a virtual dimension to traditional
public records data.
With a goal of assisting law enforcement in locating suspects,
discovering criminal activity, gathering evidence and preventing
crime, Social Media Monitor features:
-- Web-based platform with no software to install
-- Keyword, geographic or individual targeted searches
-- Powerful analysis dashboard and search console
-- Apps to integrate social media accounts
LexisNexis will debut Social Media Monitor at the International
Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference, taking place
October 19-23, 2013 in Philadelphia, PA (booth #1325). To schedule an
onsite briefing, please contact A.J. Guenther at 571-323-2585 ext.
