Metropolitan Police Department, Washington, D.C., Information and Telecommunications Systems

Dr. Tom McEwen and other ILJ information technology staff are directly involved in the "Design and Implementation of Enterprise-Wide Information and Telecommunications Capabilities" project for the District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department (MPD). This ongoing effort involves replacing all major communications and information management systems in the Department. The MPD has contracted with Mitretek Systems, Inc., in McLean, Virginia, to assess, plan, and design a modern information technology architecture. ILJ is one of two subcontractors, and is currently assisting the effort with respect to the computer aided dispatch (CAD), records management system (RMS), and PPMS (early warning system). The systems are being developed in support of the department’s decentralized community policing approach.
