Arx is Creating National Standards for Policing
Why We Don’t Have Policing Standards Today
We have nationwide benchmark policies for policing, but there is no requirement for adoption. Each agency has taken its own approach to how they execute police services and how they collect the information about that activity. That autonomy is now causing issues with agencies lacking necessary data and the standards on how to make sense of it.

Why We Need Standards for Police Data

How Arx is Creating Policing Standards
The Arx platform brings together data from multiple systems and presents that data in a common way to police officers and externally to the citizens they serve. This is allowing for clear communication between the police and their community as well as between police agencies. Thanks to this new standard, best practices are being formed and discussed across consortiums of police and government leaders.

Clear Police Standards Improve Public Trust
Establishing clear, consistent standards for police data collection and reporting, the level of trust that communities have for police will dramatically improve. Arx is already seeing this happen in communities that are using Arx to provide accountability and transparency. On a larger scale, the more this becomes the norm, the more citizens will have confidence in what their department is doing.

Clear Police Standards Yield Social Justice
Standards in policing data are great, but only if they include demographics. Social justice and ensuring that the police are upholding those concepts are essential in today’s climate of hyper-awareness. Arx provides all critical policing data with associated demographic information so that standards for social justice can be monitored and upheld.
