Jim Clary, CEO of Mi-Co, has been invited to present at the South Carolina Criminal Justice Information System (CJIS) User's Conference on Tuesday, January 28, 2003. The three-day conference, hosted by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED), focuses in on key issues for South Carolina law enforcement officials involved with the Criminal Justice Information System of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The FBI's Criminal Justice Information System is used for statistical crime tracking and reporting in the United States. The CJIS Division of the FBI is the largest Division within the FBI. Programs that are consolidated under the CJIS Division include the National Crime Information Center (NCIC), Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR), and Fingerprint Identification. In addition, responsibility for several ongoing technological initiatives were also transferred to the CJIS Division, including the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System and the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS).
Mi-Co offers the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division and other state agencies unique mobile computing software technology that can be used to conveniently capture criminal justice information by first responders on existing paper forms. Law enforcement officers using mobile devices such as Pocket PCs and the new Microsoft Tablet PCs capture uniform crime report data required by the FBI at the same time they record crime incident information needed for local criminal justice purposes. Using Mi-Co's innovative Mi-Forms software technology, this information can be conveniently sent to the FBI through local law enforcement and state law enforcement computers.
