Boeing announced today it will develop a new automated criminal history system for the state of Minnesota that will enhance access to critical data, enabling criminal justice agencies to better execute their mission.
Under an agreement signed with the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, Boeing will partner with the BCA to develop improved security controls for critical data, proactive monitoring and alerts, and performance metrics that easily integrate with other systems.
"Boeing has teamed with state law enforcement to implement the same trusted, state-of-the-art systems used by the federal law enforcement community," said Jeff Brown, director of Boeing's Intelligence Systems Group. "This agreement with Minnesota is a strategic investment in the future of state and local law enforcement."
The new system will replace an outdated criminal history system currently used by the state. The contract incorporates Boeing's Entity Management Framework, an application framework for building systems to track the analytics information in an enterprise. It also utilizes Twister, a data integration tool kit providing both data consolidation and data federation.
