Los Angeles County Deploys COPLINK(R) to Support Crime Solving and Anti-Terrorism Initiatives Across the Region

NEW ORLEANS and TUCSON , Ariz., Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- IACP -- Knowledge Computing Corp. today announced that its award-winning COPLINK(R) solution suite will be deployed to support Los Angeles County law enforcement through the Regional...

COPLINK is currently deployed in major strategic deployments across California including: the Los Angeles Police Department; Los Angeles Sheriff's Department: across Orange County through the Orange County Integrated Law and Justice (OCILJ) consortium of county police agencies, and across San Diego through the Automated Regional Justice Information System (ARJIS) Network which supports federal, state and local law enforcement agencies across San Diego . Each COPLINK "node" within California is or will be linked to provide for cross jurisdictional information sharing and collaboration to solve crimes.

When COPLINK is used to create regional or statewide networks, each participating agency has real-time control over what data is shared, with whom and when. In addition, data continues to reside and be updated at its existing source, with automatic refresh mechanisms triggering updates within COPLINK. These safeguards help protect the integrity of the data and sensitive information while allowing for the creation of ad hoc regional task forces to address specific criminal activity.

COPLINK first catapulted into the national spotlight for its proof of concept role following the Montgomery County, Maryland sniper investigation. Today, the solution is in use in over 600 jurisdictions nationwide spanning across 20 states, including four of the nation's five largest cities, helping police officers fight crime, thwart terrorism and improve community safety. A powerful force multiplier, COPLINK is documented as conservatively providing a 14:1 investigative time advantage, reducing the time it takes to identify qualified suspects, thereby enabling law enforcement to keep more feet on the streets.

Winner of numerous awards, COPLINK was recognized twice by the International Association of Chiefs of Police for deployments in Tucson , Arizona and across the State of Alaska. The Center for Digital Government also recognized COPLINK as one of the best-of-breed and most innovative IT projects undertaken by cities in the nation.
