Center for Advanced Public Safety
The Center for Advanced Public Safety (CAPS) is an applied research center focused on the integration of technology into real-world problems that impact public safety and well-being. CAPS develops new technology for police officers, emergency medical units, and for government business units that support criminal justice, transportation, human services, vehicle tax registration, and collection and a host of related services. With the provision of cutting edge technology that impacts lives in so many different ways, we engage in engineering and applied social/behavioral science research made possible by technology-produced substrate data. To support this applied research, we also maintain a strong basic research stream in data analytics and the computing technology needed to support big data in society.
