North, alongside FCSO’s Cmdr. Joe Barile, both participated in panels focusing on technological, foundational, analytical and collaborate topics in an effort to bring new strategies to crime centers across the country.

“This event was much needed in the world of growing technology,” North said. “There are new crime centers popping up all the time, so being a part of our Real Time Crime Center from its origins allowed me to speak to those who are just starting out and it was a great networking opportunity as well.”

Hosted by the Elk Grove Police Department’s RTCC in Elk Grove, California, FCSO’s team took part in seeing, sharing, learning and comparing practices being utilized in RTCC’s across the country. The four-day conference brought together 42 agencies from around the nation.

“This kind of educational opportunity allows us to better serve our community,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “Our crime analysts and RTCC have played an important role in reducing crime, quickly solving crimes, and preventing crimes of opportunity since we use the latest technology.”

The National Real Time Crime Center Association was recently established and announced at the symposium. The Board of Directors consists of members from various states across the country.
