Title: S'R'F'E'R'S' State, Regional,

S.R.F.E.R.S.State, Regional, Federal
Enterprise Retrieval SystemBJA Regional
Information Sharing Conference
SRFERS Background
  • ARJIS awarded a grant from NIJ
  • ARJIS is a JPA formed to share law enforcement
    info in the San Diego Region among 11,000 users
    and 71 local, state, and federal agencies
  • Goal of the SRFERS grant to implement
    recommendations from the National Criminal
    Intelligence Sharing Plan (NCISP)
  • NCISP endorsed by DOD and DOJ

Grant Objective
  • Develop an interstate info sharing application
    featuring 3 data sources
  • Inter-State Booking Photos Data
  • License Plate Reader data (LPR)
  • NLETS Message Archive (RAND)
  • Develop a Toolkit for information sharing of
    data and functionality not previously available
    across state lines

Business Case
  • Established need for interstate info sharing
  • Practitioner interviews and surveys
  • Analytical studies conducted
  • Comparison of other info sharing initiatives
  • Results indicated that SRFERS would
  • Save time and resources
  • Improve quality of service
  • Enhance public and officer safety

  • Phase I participants included
  • Nlets
  • California Department of Justice
  • Maricopa County ICJIS
  • Arizona Department of Public Safety

Data SourceInterstate Booking Photos
  • No automated system for interstate Sharing of
    booking photos
  • User survey and interviews
  • How do you go about gettingthese photos today?
  • How useful would it be to youto be able to
    receive photosfrom other states?

How do you go about getting out-of-state photos
  • It is a slow and laborious process that takes
  • By calling the agency in order to request one.
    This is very time consuming and not at all
    practical in the field.
  • I work at night and agencies handle photo
    requests during the day.

How useful would this be?
  • Would greatly improve our efficiency. I am
    currently attempting to locate an AZ fugitive of
    which I have not been able to obtain a photo.
  • It can include or exclude a person as a suspect
    early in an investigation.
  • Immediate access to these photos would enable us
    to make positive identification of suspects.
  • This would help close cases much more quickly.

Interstate activity studies
  • ARJIS conducted a study of 137 suspects in Tucson
    and Phoenix involved in
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Burglary
  • Criminal Homicide
  • When the suspects were run through ARJIS 190
    related incident reports were found that matched
    those names
  • Nlets averages over a million interstate
    transactions per month

Data SourceLicense Plate Reader Data
  • Nlets has access to National Insurance Crime
    Bureaus License Plate Reader (LPR) data
  • Users surveyed and interviewed
  • Would you want to know if a vehicle of interest
    has crossed the border?
  • How would LPR be useful to your job?

LPR User Feedback
  • Many of our murder suspects flee to Mexico.
    Anything that would help track wanted suspects
    would be great.
  • Multiple crossings within a short period of time
    should raise the concern level of our officers
    and enhance our safety.
  • It would save us time
  • and resources, which
  • equals money.

Vehicle Border Crossing Study
  • 5 Day Test conducted
  • 780,000 plates crossed the border
  • More than 1300 involved in
  • 4 Murders
  • 14 Rapes
  • 24 Robberies
  • 273 Assaults
  • 128 Burglaries
  • 345 Vehicle Theft
  • 361 Weapons
  • 241 Narcotics

Data SourceRAND
  • Nlets logs over 80 million transactions a month
  • Provides users with ability to see who else has
    queried the same people and plates
  • It makes the process more effective and
    efficient when officers and prosecutors have a
    complete picture of the criminals actions.
  • As it stands there is little or no communication
    with agencies from another state."

Phase 1 RAND
S.R.F.E.R.S. Toolkit

S.R.F.E.R.S. Toolkit
Toolkit Successful Demo of NCISP
  • Utilize existing multi-jurisdictional
    info-sharing systems
  • Focus on using existing public safety networks as
    the conduit for deploying a nationwide system
  • Operational requirements, technical
    specifications, standard interfaces, model MOUs,
    Security Protocols, and other required governing
  • Addresses legal and policy limitations and
    restrictions on implementing information sharing
  • Overcome political and technical barriers

User Feedback - Photos
  • Had missing person report with a guy that was
    supposed to be going to Arizona. I checked him in
    SRFERS and found out he had been recently
    arrested in Arizona. So one missing person report
    closed, case solved.
  • I received the information I needed within
    seconds. This is a dramatic improvement over the
    old system.

User Feedback - LPR
  • Feedback indicates that LPR has assisted
  • Jail Escape Case, Murder Case, Locating stolen
  • The fact that the average street cop and
    investigator has access to this is huge.

Governance Communication
  • Led by multi-disciplinary team
  • Bi-weekly conference calls
  • Quarterly meetings
  • On-line forum keep the team informed

Policy Advisory Committee (PAC)
  • Review validate deliverables
  • Provide policy guidance
  • Each member will be
  • Knowledgeable about national info sharing and
    intelligence issues, initiatives and projects
  • Actively involved in and able to represent one
    national organization and one state level

PAC Representation
  • FBI/CJIS (1 representative)
  • DOJ/CIO (1 representative)
  • DHS/IAIP/HSIN (1 representative)
  • NIJ (1 representative)
  • Global (1 representative)
  • Federal Law Enforcement (1 representative)
  • State representation (2 representatives)

  • New data sources (i.e. Drivers License Photos)
  • Alert notification system
  • Centralized metrics collection and reporting

Phase II DHS Funds
  • Goal Operational Roll out of tool kit to Tool
    kit roll out to other Western regions/states

Phase II Accomplishments to Date
  • Funding established
  • Project Team established
  • Technical kickoff meeting held
  • Partnerships formed with locals/states and other
    info sharing projects (i.e. NISP)
  • Bi-Weekly Technical Calls
  • CAL-DOJ Gap Analysis of current image exchange
    data sets
  • CAL-DOJ review of image encoding options
  • Draft recommended PAC members established

Next Steps
  • Hire a full time Technical Manager
  • Hold First PAC meeting
  • Continue Roll out application to ARJIS users
  • Develop Phase II functional requirements
  • Establish a detailed Project Plan
  • New regions/states participation readiness
