Metropolitan Police Department,
Washington, D.C.;
Planning and Implementing Information and Telecommunications Technology

Dr. Tom McEwen and ILJ information technology staff were directly involved in the "Design and Implementation of Enterprise-Wide Information and Telecommunications Capabilities" project for the Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Department (MPD). This effort replaced all major communications and information management systems in the department. The MPD had contracted with Mitretek Systems, Inc., in McLean, Virginia, to assess, plan, and design a modern information technology architecture. ILJ was one of two subcontractors and assisted the effort with respect to computer aided dispatch (CAD, both 911 and 311 response systems), records management system (RMS), and PPMS (early warning system). The systems were developed in support of the department's decentralized community policing approach.
