In law enforcement, connecting the dots on people with criminal backgrounds often makes the difference in the outcome of a dangerous situation. A new application in North Carolina, called Criminal Justice Law Enforcement Automated Data Services, is designed to hasten decision making for safer outcomes. The application, which is being rolled out statewide over 18 months, creates a comprehensive profile of an offender's criminal history in the state and a watch list that alerts law enforcement officials via email of arrests or other changes in status.
