In Depth: Law Enforcement

An 8-year-old girl was abducted from the mall. Her parents immediately informed the local and state police of their daughter's abduction. The abductor fled to the next state with the young girl. He was eventually pulled over for speeding in the neighboring state. The police officer checked out the abductor's information and nothing suspicious showed up. The officer wrote a ticket and moved on. There was never any type of warning of an abduction that was disseminated across state systems quickly enough to reach the officer. The abductor and the young girl were never found.

In the fast-paced environment we live in, timing and efficiency are everything. For law enforcement personnel it is critical to have a flexible system that constantly updates information and makes this information available within seconds. Information is frequently transmitted from one state to another state, but too frequently information from the other state is difficult to interpret or lost.
