AIC and Microsoft announced a new contract with Clark County, Nevada to modernize the County’s criminal history and wanted vehicle systems.
“Clark County is facing challenges with the performance and cost of their older mainframe-based public safety applications,” said Skip Fogus, General Manager of AIC’s Government Solutions Practice. “The 16,000 users of Clark County’s criminal history and wanted vehicle systems require a new solution that is easier to work with, provides complete and timely information and is highly available. AIC’s solution, based on the Microsoft platform, will provide a cost-effective and flexible solution to help Clark County achieve and sustain success for many years to come.”
Clark County’s criminal history and wanted vehicle systems are currently utilized by over fifty local, state and federal agencies. These systems deliver front-line support to justice and public safety officials, providing them with criminal and vehicle information critical to the County’s justice process. Both the criminal history and the wanted vehicle systems are more than thirty years old. The new solution, designed by AIC, utilizes open architecture principles and leverages best-of-breed technologies such as Microsoft Office SharePoint Server, Microsoft BizTalk and Microsoft SQL Server combined with proven national standards such as the Global Justice Reference Architecture and the National Information Exchange Model.
“Collaboration is the foundation for successful public safety operations,” said Microsoft’s Joe Rozek, Executive Director of Homeland Security and Counter-Terrorism. “A key component to our success is AIC’s deep industry expertise in justice and public safety, enabling Clark County to move to a more flexible approach while still leveraging best practices. Our shared goal is to improve these Clark County systems and bolster the safety of Southern Nevada’s officers and citizens alike.”
