Innovation in real-time intelligence offers police ‘Dynamic Protocol’ for high-risk events

31 May 2018

Together with the Dutch Police and Tensing, a specialist in geo-information and GIS-technology, TNO starts a new project: ‘Dynamic Protocol’. The aim is to realise an information tool that supports the coordination in complex situations, such as large scale incidents and security of large, high risk events.

Project Team Dynamic Protocol, a cooperation of Police, Tensing and TNO

The coordination in complex situations, such as crises, large scale incidents and other large scale activities, such as events, continues to be a serious challenge for the police. In the preparation of a coordinated action, a special team (in Dutch: Staf Grootschalig Bijzonder Optreden, SGBO) is activated. The SGBO drafts protocols that describe how to act during the execution of an action in a real life situation.

Dynamic Protocol as information tool

The new ‘Dynamic Protocol’ is an information tool that aims to support the decisions that need to be taken during the execution of an action. It maps out the actual situation: how busy the location is, the traffic flows, and the routes of public transport.  It also creates an action orientated perspective, and can calculate and visualize possible scenarios. Think for example of how a clearance or evacuation could flow out with an actual threat or a closure of access roads.

Working together in the RTI-lab

The ‘Dynamic Protocol’ came about in the RTI-lab (Real Time Intelligence-lab) where the Dutch Police, Tensing and TNO have been working together on the concept for a longer time already. The RTI-lab supports organizations actively in the field of security with the innovation of their real-time intelligence. The concept ‘Dynamic Protocol’ is currently being transformed into an easy to handle and executable prototype. With the prototype, the parties involved will test a practical situation together, to get a better understanding of the added value and impact of the concept.

The Real Time Intelligence-lab (RTI-lab) is a partnership between the Dutch Police, TNO and HSD (Hague Security Delta). Would you like to know more? Read about the RTI-lab on TNOTIME.
