Backtrace Is A Cloud-Based Tool That Enables Investigators

to collect, correlate and display information from disparate sources related to crime analysis. Records of arrests, crime locations, prison records, vehicle locations, guns, shell casing signatures and myriad other data points create a picture of people, the data points and their inter-relationships to establish sound investigational leads.

BackTrace is a Proven Crime-Fighting Tool

The success of the NJ ROIC as a criminal information analysis and sharing hub led to the development of three regional Real-Time Crime Centers (RTCC) to expand the analytical capabilities provided to local and state agencies. Decentralizing some of the analytical expertise allowed analysts to develop local knowledge of the crime environment, build relationships in those regions and allowed the RTCCs to focus on regional issues.  

Also this led to the development of BackTrace as a more sophisticated analytical application. BackTrace is a repository of criminal justice data that supports investigative and prosecutorial entities for violent crime cases. BackTrace has incrementally automated the collection, sharing and analysis of violent crime arrest data, NIBIN, NJ Trace and NJ POP data among others to provide users with investigative support packages that examine geographical patterns, crime gun data, and connects incidents with suspects and victims.

It has become an example of consolidating gains and producing more change, as well as anchoring new approaches in the culture as it allows investigators and prosecutors to derive data from the system using simple query tools and dashboards.

It is currently evolving as users request additional features to support their work. In summary, this almost two decades long crime reduction project has provided New Jersey criminal justice professionals with a continuous stream of innovations focused primarily on violent crime. Through the collaboration of a range of agencies, this crime gun effort has become institutionalized as a way of doing business. It illustrates the effectiveness of an intelligence-led policing approach as a strategy to address firearms crime across jurisdictions and the utility of data-driven policy making.
