In this episode, we dig into two real-time, data-driven public service scenarios -- both about systems and people that support policing at-scale. You'll hear solution-oriented clips pulled from two episodes of the 'Public Sector Future' podcast, with show host Olivia Neal - Director of Public Sector Center of Expertise at Microsoft. First, Olivia speaks to Ian Bell, CEO of the UK’s Police Digital Service, to give an inside look into harnessing the power of digital, data, and technology to better protect the communities they serve. Then a conversation with Joseph Courtesis, former Inspector of the NYPD who helped rationalize millions of data points from multiple data sources to save police time, in real time.
