Helping Agencies Share Crime Data Quickly and Safely
Crime unfortunately does not stay contained within an agency’s jurisdiction. Therefore, crime data needs to be quickly shareable and search-able by law enforcement personnel across any number of agencies and jurisdictions from where crimes and other incidents occur. Optimum Technology has your agencies covered with SWIFTSHARE™, our robust data sharing software solution.
Optimum Technology designed SWIFTSHARE to follow the latest FBI data specifications to accept and retrieve crime data from different agencies’ Records Management Systems (RMSs). This helps standardize the incoming and outgoing of data. SWIFTSHARE collects a variety of crime data and follows the FBI’s National Data Exchange (N-DEx) National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) Information Exchange Package Documentation (IEPD) XML data format.
SWIFTSHARE receives a variety of crime data from Law Enforcement agencies’ RMSs. The data can include incident, arrest, field interview, booking, citation, victim, person, location, vehicle data, and much more.
This data can be forwarded to a data sharing system such as LInX (the NCIS [Naval Criminal Investigative Service] Law Enforcement Information Exchange), which is a crime data exchange hub connected to the different states. LInX provides data from other states’ agencies and is shared by patrol officers, investigators and crime analysts from almost 2,000 agencies across the country. (https://www.ncis.navy.mil/Mission/PartnershipInitiatives/LInX0D0Dex/)
This technology allows local and state agencies to share law enforcement records to assist with investigations and crime analyses across jurisdictional lines.
When crime data is submitted from agencies’ RMSs to SWIFTSHARE that data can be forwarded by SWIFTSHARE to a data sharing system (such as LInX), to other RMSs, or to an analytics and reporting solution (such as Optimum’s SWIFTANALYTICS™) using an NDEX NIEM connection. In the example above, the LInX hub combines it with other received crime data from other agencies.
SWIFTSHARE can optionally work with a criminal justice search engine such as SWIFTCONNECT®, Optimum’s criminal justice search engine. SWIFTCONNECT provides an expanded search interface that brings together available data from multiple data sources and provides powerful search capabilities. Together our solutions help law enforcement personnel search, view and share incident and other crime information to help solve crimes.
SECURITY AT ITS BEST
SWIFTSHARE is built with two forms of security: authentication and encryption. Data is
encrypted in transit via HTTPs and also is encrypted at rest. Uploaded XML files use
TripleDES encryption using a secure key and Initialization Vector.
Person identifiers such as Social Security Numbers (SSNs), state drivers’ licenses, and other IDs (i.e., state IDs, passports, FBI numbers, NCIC numbers, etc.) use AES_256 encryption using a symmetric key securely stored in the database.
The information-sharing mission of SWIFTSHARE is to help protect civilians and communities from acts of crime, violence and terrorism.
