Mississippi Deploys System to Help Local Public Safety Teams Fight Crime and Terrorism

The Mississippi Automated System Project (ASP), a mobile data infrastructure that links local law enforcement and public safety agencies in a single database, was successfully implemented as a pilot project today in Hancock, Harrison and Jackson counties, Mississippi. When complete, this project will provide mobile units with real-time access to all available public safety information including mug shots, arrest warrants, criminal intelligence, hazardous materials data and medical emergency protocols.

"It is critical that all of our first responders have instant access to the critical information that can save lives, speed arrests and ensure public safety," said Major Julian Allen, Ph.D., director of the Automated System Project. "IBM and Tarantella have delivered a secure and robust server/software solution that provides this secure remote access capability without any single point of failure."
