The challenges of law enforcement data sharing

RAND has put out a new report, titled “Improving Information-Sharing Across Law Enforcement: Why Can’t We Know?”   Written by John Hollywood and Zev Winkelman, it makes some key points, including:

  • Law enforcement information sharing is a complex problem; there are many different systems to integrate.
  • Information assurance is a key issue.
  • Cost, especially for smaller agencies, is often a limiting factor.

Lumen addresses all of these.  Because Lumen does not have its own pre-defined data schema, data sources such as customized RMS and CAD systems can be integrated and shared quickly, easily, and at low cost.  And Lumen is CJIS compliant, ensuring the security of critical law enforcement data.  Contact us today to learn more!
