Abstract

The aim of this paper is to provide profiles for crimes which can be used to model the context for information sharing between the police and community partner organisations. This context can then be integrated with information-sharing syntax used by Single Point of Contact (SPoC) agents to process information sharing requests [1]. The questionnaires attempt to clas-sify crimes into categories, with identify profiles of crime-types, according to the level of in-formation sharing they necessitate between community partner organisations. Crimes are sepa-rated into classifications, which are based on the perceived level of necessary information-exchange among police and community partners. The aim of the questionnaire is to gather academic responses to identify the level of risk in order that it can be defined as risk assess-ment level, which is key to enhancing the public?s reassurance in the police.
