AI-Powered Operations
by Untrite Thrive

Untrite Thrive AI patented platform supercharges Control Room teams performance by unlocking a new dimension of a real-time insight.

The Problem

Public safety institutions with legacy systems and specialised knowledge suffer from data silos and fragmented information.

Citizens can access policing services in a myriad of ways, however the demand received from telephony in the form of emergency 999 and non-emergency 101 calls has increased, with legacy police technology and process struggling to cope with demand, whilst still providing the high-quality service the public expect.

In the end-to-end service journey of a citizen and their data being involved with policing, it is that initial point of contact that is often the most important to get right, however due to the often-stressful circumstances compounded by the time criticality of sharing the information, this is often the area of poor-quality data entering the police system.

Untrite Thrive brings together different fabrics of digital technology, around transcription, data mapping and risk analysis to support human operators making better quality decisions with better quality data to enable policing to keep the public and officers themselves, as safe as possible.

Case study:
Humberside Police Control Room AI Assistant

By using modern algorithms and technologies, like Untrite Thrive AI, call handling capability in policing can be improved through the ability to:

  • Capture data more accurately, enabling vital details relevant to keeping the public safe to be captured more quickly, precisely, and effectively.
  • Recognise key information provided first time around, placing less stress on the citizen and police call operator, by removing the need to constantly repeat key names or locations in less-than-ideal background environments or circumstances.
  • Assist human operators, to make consistently accurate and timely decisions based on all the information available to assign appropriate policing resource.
This project sought to understand if it was possible to incorporate AI into high stress, fast-paced FCR environments to provide meaningful benefits for both the public and the police, evaluated in a live testing environment. Untrite Thrive required to provide the listening, transcribing, mapping, searching and reporting had yet to be drawn together and harnessed in the proposed use case of assessing domestic abuse calls for risk and further action.

Expected benefits achieved:

29% savings on DA call handling​

Implementation of Untrite Thrive AI Assistant can help FCR teams save approximately 29% from total call handling times (including post-call administration), through use of the time saving automation features of the AI assistant bringing information together and synthesising results. Applied to average DA calls found in HP, this equates to approximately 7 minutes 50 seconds saved per call. With approximately 25,200 DA calls per year, this represents a saving of 3,290 hours for FCR operators in one control room. The ability to save 29% of time on DA call handling, is applicable to other Forces, as the evaluated approach to measuring and recording risk in DA is a common use case in policing.

Nearly 2x more resource assistance per operator

With an average FCR operator having approximately 1,700 hours of time per year to spend on call handling (after leave, training and other abstractions are accounted for) the AI model represents the ability to provide as much resource assistance as 1.9 FTE operators. This is solely limited to DA calls, with wider applicability and time savings possible, when leveraged for other call types.

Reduced call waiting times

The time saved can be implemented instantly, to reduce call waiting times by enabling existing numbers of operators to handle more calls in a shift. Call wait times are a measure of Force Control Room success and feature in inspection reports by HMICFRS into Force performance. This potential reduction in call wait times could improve audit performance for Forces but also improve satisfaction and safety levels in the public, by dealing with incidents quicker and reducing the risk of genuine callers giving up and terminating a valid call.

More accurate data capturing and less human errors

Untrite Thrive AI assistant can capture data more accurately than an operator can do alone, enabling vital details relevant to keeping the public safe to be captured more quickly and effectively. This effectively lowers the risks to the public and to officers, by ensuring the foundational data flowing into police systems and risk scoring calculations is accurate, which enables the appropriate response to any given dynamic situation the police are requested to attend. This has the wider impact of increasing trust in policing by enabling incidents to be dealt with quickly and efficiently, with no wasted resource which could instead be assigned to support the public elsewhere.

Additional benefits achieved:

Untrite Thrive as a "Safety net" helping reduce the stress

FCR operators expressed reassurance at seeing the words transcribed in front of them, even in scenarios where they were fairly certain they heard what they thought they heard, the extra confidence the system provided them was helpful in allowing them to focus on the risks rather than the typing. Operators described the Untrite Thrive AI assistant as a “Safety net” which helped reduce the stress and enable them to provide a higher quality service to the public as a result.

Suspect speech transcribed in the audio

Untrite Thrive AI assistant was so sensitive, it even picked up background audio from other peoples voices. This would be of potential evidential or intelligence based value with a suspects speech transcribed in the audio. This is speech which would otherwise be beyond human ability to hear and understand, but may be required to provide sufficient evidence to pass the charging threshold. Impartial evidence is often difficult to obtain in DA cases, due to the parties concerned often being alone and in private, so this represents a significant opportunity for policing DA on a new evidence stream.

Collated and matched call logs

Untrite Thrive AI Assistant was able to automatically collate call logs and automatically match them with call audio recordings. This task is otherwise done manually and takes valuable time from operator and quality assurance teams at HP FCR, enabling them to do more of their core activity, and less time on manual searching.
