Public safety spending up

State and local governments will spend at least $8 billion on information technology in the public safety and criminal justice vertical market in 2003, according to the market research firm Input Inc., Chantilly, Va.

Driven by homeland security initiatives, this vertical market will account for more than 20 percent of total state and local IT spending, Input said.

State and local governments are focused on purchasing technology that will allow them to create networks for communications among public safety and criminal justice departments, said Meredith Luttner, Input's manager of state and local database services.
