PITTSBURGH, Pa. – Criminals often use technology to hide their crimes and cover their tracks. Now, the tech industry is looking to turn the tables in favor of crime fighters.
“They have resource constraints and these kind of tools take what may have been manually impossible or would take hundreds of hours to do, down to seconds,” Cara Jones explained of tools the tech industry now has to offer law enforcement.
Jones helped start Marinus Analytics, a company with groundbreaking software called Traffic Jam. It helps investigators discover patterns of criminal and victim activity.
“The goal was to provide some sophisticated technology to law enforcement for combating human trafficking specifically sex trafficking,” Jones told CBN News.
