By February 21, 2024April 5th, 2024No Comments

Technology is a trusted ally for law enforcement professionals. When every second counts, having reliable, data-driven tools at your fingertips is the key to staying ahead in the fight against crime. 

At Teranet, we understand the critical role technology plays in modern law enforcement. That’s why we’re excited to announce that one of our flagship products, GeoWarehouse, will be making its debut appearance as an exhibitor at the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP) & Blue Line Expo in Ottawa, Ontario on March 26, 2024. 

Participating in this event is part of our ongoing commitment to technological advancement in the industry. Our goal is to empower law enforcement professionals with cutting-edge solutions that enhance efficiency in their roles by providing unique access to authoritative land registry and title data that’s critical to investigative due diligence.  

The evolution of law enforcement technology 

Law enforcement technology has come a long way, and it continues to evolve at a rapid pace. From handwritten reports and manual record-keeping to the digital age of data analytics, the transformation has been incredible.  

The challenges faced by law enforcement have also grown in complexity. Today, investigators are handling an unprecedented volume of data and information. Criminals have become more sophisticated in their methods, requiring innovative solutions to keep up. That’s where GeoWarehouse comes in. 

A strategic edge for law enforcement 

GeoWarehouse revolutionizes data access and analysis for law enforcement professionals. It provides them with tools and technology needed to navigate the intricate web of modern crime. 

With GeoWarehouse, law enforcement officials can access accurate property information, ownership records, historical sales data, search by name and much more – exclusively sourced from the Government of Ontario’s official land registry. 

Armed with this level of detail, law enforcement officials can make informed decisions, detect real estate fraud patterns and accelerate various types of investigations. More than just a tool, GeoWarehouse, then, becomes a strategic advantage that leads to more successful outcomes in their efforts to protect and serve the community. 

Features built for speed and accuracy 

GeoWarehouse offers a host of features tailored for law enforcement: 

Identifying fraud: GeoWarehouse enables law enforcement to identify patterns indicative of fraudulent behaviour, particularly in mortgage-related cases. By analyzing the most recent sales history and utilizing the Property Insight Report, officials can scrutinize a property’s complete list of sales transactions, including registration date, and consideration value. 

Research: GeoWarehouse provides law enforcement professionals with advanced imagery tools, including ortho and streetview, allowing them to conduct thorough research on subject property premises. This feature facilitates virtual reconnaissance, enhancing the investigative process and aiding in the gathering of critical evidence including the identification of outbuildings. 

Ortho vs. Streetview: What’s the difference? Ortho imagery is aerial photography that removes distortion from terrain, sensors and cameras, ensuring uniform scale for precise measurements and mapping. Streetview imagery offers ground-level panoramic street views, captured using vehicle-mounted cameras, facilitating virtual navigation, property exploration and visual inspections. 

Identification: GeoWarehouse’s extensive database enables law enforcement officials to confirm property ownership and identify past owners through searching by name, which is especially valuable in investigations related to property disputes, asset tracking and historical ownership records. By searching for property ownership in various Land Registry Offices (LRO) and cross-referencing data to confirm details such as date of birth on government documents through POLARIS (Province of Ontario Land Registration Information System), GeoWarehouse ensures accuracy and reliability in asset identification. This streamlined process not only expedites investigations but also facilitates the efficient collection of documentation necessary to secure warrants with confidence. 

Actionable insights to aid investigations 

GeoWarehouse offers a variety of reports to support investigations: 

Aerial Imagery: This tool enables users to purchase high-quality aerial imagery for various purposes, including formulating tactical plans to visit the premises. It provides coverage for all of Southern Ontario, including areas not typically available in many commercial mapping platforms with various options to view canopy on and canopy off, allowing visibility of outbuildings. With photos available at three zoom levels, investigators can gain valuable insights into properties of all sizes.  

Parcel Register: This official provincial ownership record report provides a detailed property description and lists all instruments registered against the property within the Land Registration System of Ontario as of the search date. It serves as a real-time snapshot of property ownership records, allowing investigators to exercise due diligence by identifying registered encumbrances and acquiring an instrument number. 

Instrument Image: This feature offers an image of a registered land title document within the Land Registration System of Ontario, which may include liens, mortgages, transfers, and condominium declarations, among others.
