Federal 100: Amy Herchek
Name: Amy Herchek
Title: Program Manager
Texas Joint Crime Information Center
Agency: Texas Department of Public Safety
A model for information sharing. The Homeland Security Information Network succeeds only if state and local agencies can put it to good use, and Herchek's work on Texas' Operation Strong Safety program is proof of what's possible. As part of a data-driven effort to reduce human and drug trafficking along the U.S./Mexico border, OSS has used HSIN to dramatically improve situational awareness and collaboration for the 15 federal, state and local law enforcement agency partners. Herchek has been the program's driving force by training users, troubleshooting obstacles and agitating for greater agency participation.
