Neighborhood Watch data management, analysis and reporting software

Collection, analysis and reporting from the field about the work of Neighborhood Watch organizations and members, reported incidents, which ultimately makes a great added value when deciding, planning and monitoring the work of NW organizations.

With Qdrome you can broadcast a message from its Control center (with images, videos, audio files and text) to the members of Neighborhood Watch or just one team (eg. Neighborhood Watch patrol). You can also, for example, broadcast messages to all connected citizens that something is happening in a particular neighborhood (eg a protest, concert, car accident…), and they will instantly see it on their mobile devices.

At the same time, every Neighborhood Watch member (patrol member, guard..) can broadcast a media-rich message with location and GPS tracking data to all other members and the Control center and report the incident or situation. The possibilities are endless and you can tailor them to the needs of your Neighborhood Watch organization.

Important practical features for any Neighborhood Watch organization

Incidents and users data presentations and reporting

The Control center app can have several types of reporting in the form of a table, graph or heat map. Reports are available in PDF and CSV format. For example, the query can be “Show me all incidents by hours where the police were called in the last 3 months” or “Show me only incidents related to house burglaries in the last year”, etc.

Map reports

The Neighborhood Watch patrols can report incidents of suspicious persons, suspicious houses, house burglaries, car break-ins, drug dealing, and so on.

Heat maps

The concentration of reports of suspicious criminal acts and incidents can also be seen in the form of a heat map.

Graph reports

The graph shows the number of incidents reported by NW patrols by hour. The graph can also show the number of incidents in a certain period on a weekly, monthly or yearly basis.

Customizable PDF or CSV reports

Reports are an important feature for a Group Administrator. Equally important is the ability to customize the data and generate reports tailored to specific needs, which can then be exported in PDF or CSV format.

Broadcast types & tags

Members of NW patrols can use predefined tags when reporting incidents. In addition to significantly speeding up communication during the incident, it later enables high-quality analysis and filtering of the collected data and the creation of reports in the Control center.

The tags that will be used for a particular type of broadcast or the Group as a whole are defined by the Group administrator. For example: Police called, Police arrived, Ambulance called, Ambulance arrived, Ambulance left, Firefighters called, Firefighters arrived, Offender arrested, Chase in progress, Patrol in progress, etc.

Neighborhood Watch patrol real-time tracking

In the Control center app, the movement and route of the Neighborhood Watch patrol can be monitored on the map (real-time GPS tracking), and the movement route remains recorded in the database for later analysis and archiving.

User roles and management

Group user management, such as inviting Neighborhood Watch members and citizens to the group, assigning certain roles, deleting from the group, etc., is the task of the Group Administrator (via Qdrome Control center). Users are all members of your group.

There are two user roles: Regular users and Responders. Regular users can use the mobile app to report events and incidents, while Responders (Neighborhood Watch members) can respond to them, but they can also report events themselves. As a Group Administrator, you can give custom names to your users and Responders.

There is also a role of Recruiter who has all the privileges of a Responder plus the ability to recruit new Neighborhood Watch members and citizens (invite new users to the group) through the Qdrome mobile application.

Neighborhood Watch area geo-boundaries

Personnel in the Control room can divide its Neighborhood Watch area into zones and determine geo-boundaries for individual neighborhoods to have an overview of the zones in which certain patrols move, for easier organization and non-overlapping.
