Ferguson police using new software to determine bias policing, assess new hires

Posted: Updated:
FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Nearly three years after violence and protests, Ferguson Police Chief Delrish Moss says new software is being donated to his department to help rebuild trust with the community.

"We're going to work as hard as we can to bring the nobility back to policing," said Ferguson Police Chief Delrish Moss.

The new software comes courtesy of Florida-tech company LEFTA Systems.

"They believe in what's happening in Ferguson," said Chief Moss. "All across the nation, people have criticized."

The new applications help assess new hires, monitor use of force, even track bias policing using statistical data from officer encounters.

"It's going to be a huge benefit in making sure that we monitor ourselves and take corrective action where it's necessary," said Chief Moss.

Chief Moss told News 4 that the new applications cost over $100,000, but the company's donating the software to his department.

The new technology's set to go online Wednesday afternoon.
