Pa. Project to Overhaul Policing

The Pennsylvania State Police has selected Lockheed Martin Corp. to serve

as the systems integrator for a program that will incorporate computers

into every facet of the commonwealth's crime-fighting efforts.

Lockheed Martin will be the systems integrator for the Criminal Investigative/Traffic

Safety Incident Information Management System (IIMS).

The project has been in development for several years and received

$8 million in initial funding from Gov. Tom Ridge in the fiscal 1999 budget.

Ridge has proposed $17.6 million in the fiscal 2000-2001 budget for IIMS,

which would pay for installing computers in all patrol vehicles, obtaining

bar-coding technology for processing evidence, and using computer-aided

dispatching and geographic information systems.

As systems integrator, Lockheed Martin will be responsible for the design,

development and implementation of the system, incorporating consortium members,

subcontractors and vendors.
