CLEAR is an ICT-led law enforcement set of reforms that revolutionized the Chicago Police Department (CPD). The central concept is data-driven crime mapping that is not only beneficial to police enforcement but lawyers as well.

The mapping tool allows for the collection of data on crime, criminals and criminal justice activity that generates successful arrangements in crime prevention. CLEAR includes a number of ICT components including in-car cameras, video conferencing between departments, and portable data terminals. Some of the most innovative components are armed licensed plate readers, automated incident reporting system, and a police board blog.

CLEAR has reached 411 police departments and online agencies and boasts approximately 17,000 users. This programme has shown that an open systems approach to policing generates instant coordination that makes for powerful enforcement processes.
