iPredict™ ; is the crimetip Dashboard for the iThinQware product suite.
iThinQware's flagship product is the iWatch System. iWatch is an enterprise level, online and
mobile anonymous information reporting system that provide law enforcement agencies with
real-time tips from citizens, along with the ability to automatically filter and quickly view,
organize, prioritize and transmit investigative information to both internal and external agency
members. This rapid, organized, near real-time information pipeline from the field dramatically
increases an agency's ability to quickly mitigate criminal activities and prevent potential terrorist
threats. Initially developed in cooperation with the Dallas Police Department to provide a mobile
option for citizen-based tips, the iWatch Dallas mobile application for iPhone, Android and
BlackBerry went live in the fall of 2010. The iWatch System now provides over 68 law
enforcement and other agencies with near-real time access to criminal information from a
population of nearly 15 million citizens.

iWatch is an application that directly supports a Sheriff's Strategic Vision by providing a secure
environment that facilitates increased collaboration, coordination and communication both within
the agency as well as with external and international partners. As a proven source of near-real
time, decision-quality information, iWatch modernizes the traditional investigation, pursuit,
capture and prosecution process without adding to existing workflows or impacting law
enforcement standards. iWatch's information sharing capabilities use the power of highly trained
agency assets along with the ubiquitous presence of the civilian population to promote
operational readiness, protect communities and installations against potential terrorist threats
and criminal activity, dramatically increase incident response time, and ultimately reduce crime.
