The Amarillo Police Department (APD) will develop a centralized Amarillo Regional Crime Center (ARCC) to support the city and regional crime analysis and information sharing. The APD will further crime analysis and information sharing for the community and work on utilizing Violence Intervention (CVI) strategies. They also will utilize an organizational cross-agency collaboration method in their SPI project. The SPI hopes to further crime analysis and information sharing for violence, as well as assist the APD in growing analytical capacity to further the department's ability to address violent crime and support the regional needs for information sharing reduction projects.
