GTL, a trusted partner that connects those affected by incarceration with the resources and support necessary to achieve success, today announced significant growth within its Fusion Services offering. GTL Fusion Services is comprised of four fundamental pillars of service: criminal intelligence, digital forensics, security monitoring, and training/consultation. By combining a customized blend of people, technology, and data, GTL assists government agencies in the identification and mitigation of illicit activity, as well as asset and/or financial recovery.
GTL Fusion analysts leverage cutting edge artificial intelligence and data mining technology to methodically mine agency disparate data sets, turning otherwise unmeaningful raw data into financial and even life-saving actionable intelligence. Over the last year, GTL’s analysts produced over 7,200 intelligence reports related to unemployment fraud, assault and other criminal activity, and forensic device processing. These reports resulted in multiple criminal and administrative actions by law enforcement and correctional partners.
GTL’s strategic focus on quality of actionable intelligence rather than the quantity of sifted data has served both GTL and its customers well over the past several years. Over the last year, GTL experienced an exceptional 100% growth in Fusion Services.
“You know you and your analysts are doing it the right way when you see not just growth in new accounts, those who heard the message and believe it, but you see an equal growth in expansion of customers who are already utilizing the service and want more,” said Mitch Volkart, GTL Vice President, Intelligence Solutions. “Those are the true evidence-based results reflecting on a service that makes a real difference.”
It does not take long for facilities to see what GTL and its Fusion Services team can do for them. “As newer recipients of the FUSION service, we couldn’t be more pleased with the value GTL’s analysts bring to the table,” said Warden Dana Metzger, Delaware Department of Corrections. “The skill, ability, and commitment of GTL’s analysts complement our own efforts to ensure a safe environment for facility staff and offenders.”
GTL’s intelligence analysts assist in monitoring and searching across multiple channels for activity that indicates misconduct both inside and outside a facility’s walls, then present it to investigative teams for further escalation.
“GTL Fusion Services can either fill an agency gap or supplement existing agency resources,” continued Mr. Volkart. “There is much to be said for GTL’s methodical and strategic approach to providing a formal and professional service. It is the right blend of company investment, belief, and support in promoting safety through identifying and mitigating criminal activity, as well as the expertise and commitment of our intelligence analysts. Much of the credit goes to them, their skillset, their dedication, and their commitment to perform at a high level day in and day out to bring actionable intelligence to our customers.”
