The Systems and Information Engineering Department at the University of Virginia has teamed with the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services since 2000 to develop WebCAT, the Web-based crime analysis toolkit. WebCAT provides crime analysts with a tool to access Virginia's statewide crime data and effectively analyze it. The authors have prepared WebCAT for deployment by finishing its development, conducting an integrated system performance evaluation, and performing a life cycle analysis. Regarding deployment, the data acquisition, query time efficiency, and spatial mapping capabilities have been improved. A performance evaluation assessed the effectiveness of WebCAT's developments to ensure that it is now a more efficient tool. Finally, the life cycle analysis provided a methodology for maintaining WebCAT after deployment. The work done this year guarantees that WebCAT is not only ready for deployment, but also that it will be a sustainable toolkit that will aid in crime prevention in years to come
