A DIMLY LIT, DANGEROUS WORLD
Criminal activity and gang activity are inextricable and synonymous. Gangs come in all sizes, and all structures. Some are local, some are national or even international. Some are highly centralized, others are loosely run. Some affiliate strongly with other cities’ chapters or other gangs, others do not. Understanding each gang’s unique behavior, internal makeup, and external relationships is crucial to combating their spread and preventing crime.

Voyager Labs’ platforms use AI to help you identify suspects, groups and topics that can lead to a better understanding of gang activity, behavior and structure. These platforms enable you to deep dive into affiliations, connections, locations, and activity levels. What is revealed? A mosaic of human activity, an entire network of relationships, and precisely the actionable insights that can help you identify previously unknown key players in a gang and augment your work with the types of profound insights advanced technology makes possible.
DISMANTLING A CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION
In one major investigation in a large U.S. city, police had developed a case against a violent street gang involved in drug trafficking. As the investigation progressed, seven gang members were identified. When VoyagerAnalytics was used to assess these individuals, it initially identified more than 15,000 separate connections for all seven. It quickly reduced that number fivefold, to around 3,000 connections shared by at least two of the suspects. Even so, this dense mass of data might take a human investigator many weeks to sift through, if it was attempted at all. In the space of just a few more minutes, VoyagerAnalytics further narrowed down those 3,000 separate data points to only four individuals who were connected to all seven known suspects. This provided analysts with clear, actionable leads for further investigation, the kind of leads that result in additional arrests and prosecutions.
