Dr. Tom McEwen and ILJ information technology staff are directly involved in the "Design and Implementation of Enterprise-Wide Information and Telecommunications Capabilities" project for the Washington DC Metropolitan Police Department (MPD). This is an ongoing effort to replace 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 computer aided dispatch (CAD, both 911 and 311 response systems), records management system (RMS), and PPMS (early warning system). The systems are being developed in support of the department's decentralized community policing approach.
