Enhancing Community Safety: Gang Graffiti Automatic Recognition and Interpretation System [open pdf - 1MB]
This factsheet describes the Gang Graffiti Automatic Recognition and Interpretation (GARI) system, which was developed by the Center for Visualization and Data Analytics, a DHS Science and Technology (S&T) Center of Excellence. This system identifies and tracks gang activity by analyzing gang graffiti through an app. The user takes an image of the graffiti and GARI gives an immediate analysis of the tag, including gang affiliation and interpretation. GARI is available on Android systems and desktop computers. Currently law enforcement officials in Indiana are using GARI.
