Indiana Bolsters Criminal Data Network

Datamaxx Applied Technologies Inc. has won a $4 million contract from Indiana to integrate its state police system with the National Crime Information Center, company officials said Oct. 22.

Under the contract, Datamaxx of Tallahasse, Fla., will provide the Indiana State Police Department with imaging, electronic validation of records and live-scan fingerprinting as part of NCIC 2000.

To accomplish this, Datamaxx will replace the state's message switching, provide hardware and software that meets NCIC 2000 specifications and establish the state's "hot files." Those contain information on missing and wanted persons and stolen property in the state and will be available to other law enforcement agencies through the National Crime Information Center.

The FBI established NCIC 2000 two years ago to support federal, state and local law enforcement efforts. It is composed of 17 databases that give more than 80,000 criminal justice agencies nationwide access to law enforcement information on stolen vehicles and license plates, missing and wanted persons, gangs and suspected terrorists.

DataMaxx, a privately held company, provides desktop and mobile workstations and software to law enforcement and criminal justice agencies in 14 federal agencies and 35 states.
