LexisNexis BAIRs Down on Analytics Company
LexisNexis Risk Solutions intends to acquire BAIR (Behavioral Analysis & Intelligence Resources), an analytical software and services company that provides tools to public safety, national security, and defense entities. The acquisition will help LexisNexis provide this community with comprehensive investigative solutions via BAIR’s analytics, mapping, and visual tools (which identify and predict crime patterns), and LexisNexis’ public records database and linking technology (which add context to crime patterns and locate persons of interest).
“The acquisition will be unique in the industry and help public safety officers make better decisions to close cases faster and improve community safety. In an era of constrained budgets, analytics are essential to optimize limited resources and increase overall efficiencies,” says Haywood Talcove, CEO of government and LexisNexis Special Services, Inc.
