MCP Enables State of Iowa Pilot Project to Bidirectionally Share Inmate Health and Healthcare Data

Georgia now has a consistent, simplified interface to exchange data across the criminal justice ecosystem

MCP's Support of Iowa CJIS Helps to Make the Program 'Irreplaceable'

In Summary

  • The State of Iowa Criminal Justice Information System (Iowa CJIS) is a system of systems designed to enable the integration and sharing of information between the state’s criminal justice organizations, seamlessly and securely, in real time.
  • URL Integration, who became part of Mission Critical Partners in 2020, built the Iowa CJIS from the ground up and today, continue to support the program, which is providing incalculable benefits
  • The program has increased the amount of information being shared across the state’s criminal-justice community and has improved the data of accuracy being sent, among other benefits

The Impact of Records Management System Technology Trends on Law Enforcement Agencies

In Summary:

  • Records management systems (RMS) are the backbone of recordkeeping for law enforcement agencies
  • They enable agencies to capture, store, retrieve, analyze, and leverage data and information to support operations from incident and crime data to personnel files and information
  • RMS technology has evolved substantially over the last several years
  • To meet the demands of law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve, RMS providers have implemented myriad new capabilities

On-Demand Webinar: Moving to NIBRS: Preparing Your Agency for Compliance and Options to Consider

In January 2021, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will stop collecting Uniform Crime Report (UCR) summary data and only collect data through the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS). There are many questions, both technical and operational, about how agencies can meet the compliance deadline, especially when it comes to the challenges of report validation, personnel training and developing new, effective workflows.

During this session, Mission Critical Partners discusses the following:

The NIBRS Deadline Is Fast Approaching—Here's What You Should Be Doing

In Summary:

  • Law-enforcement agencies nationwide are grappling with their migrations to the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS), an initiative to intended to improve the accuracy, timeliness and transparency of the nation's crime statistics, which could be used to help identify crime patterns and trends, and ultimately, prevent crime.
  • Numerous challenges stand in the way of NIBRS compliance, and some agencies are at risk of not meeting the January 2021 deadline.
  • This whitepaper identifies the benefits of the migration and explores tactics that could help them meet the deadline.

NIBRS is expected to foster greater consistency in the data that is being collected for each incident that occurs because it has defined standard ways of describing an incidentand collecting the data, so that apples-to-apples comparisons can be made at the national level. There are several challenges that exist for law enforcement agencies, including the need to retool their RMS to comply with the new rules that have been established, cost, and organizational change. This whitepaper discusses the following:

Whitepaper: Don’t Take Shortcuts When Developing NG911 GIS Data

Geographic information system (GIS) data is a foundational component in the migration to, and continuing operation of, Next Generation 911 (NG911) systems. But developing local GIS data so that it aligns with NG911 standards is a laborious and time-consuming process that can take months or years to complete.

Information-Sharing Enterprise in Georgia Supported by MCP Improves Efficiency, Data Quality

In Summary: 

  • The State of Georgia's criminal justice community knew that it needed to improve data quality
  • While the project started small, it was soon realized that sustainable statewide improvements would significantly improve the flow of data and information throughout the criminal case lifecycle
  • The ultimate goal of the program was to enhance and improve the criminal justice process by moving documents and information seamlessly between systems

Enhancing Law Enforcement with Actionable Data

In Summary:

  • Thanks to public safety broadband communications, a tremendous amount of data can now be implemented into emergency response
  • Data analytics and artificial intelligence are not new, but they are constantly evolving
  • How do law enforcement agencies harness this data in order to improve the way they serve and protect their communities?
