Law Enforcement Information Exchange (LInX)

LInX correlates and identifies hidden data and linkages across multiple jurisdictions, bringing them front and center for authorized users to see.

Too much data. Too little time.

For law enforcement and criminal justice agencies, this is the big hurdle that leaves critical information buried in their databases– or more to the point, spread across multiple state, local, and national databases.

With Law Enforcement Information Exchange (LInX), users will retrieve and link more available data than ever before to support their investigative and tactical operations. LInX supports queries against both structured and free text documents. Combining this with our expanded query capabilities, users will increase their chances of finding and recognizing critical information. As a result, users work more efficiently by employing the familiar steps and procedures they already know.

LInX correlates and identifies hidden data and linkages across multiple jurisdictions, bringing them front and center for authorized users to see.

LInX provides advanced analytics capabilities to Law Enforcement that include:

  • GIS
  • Entity resolution
  • Trend and pattern identification
  • Temporal analysis
  • Event correlation
  • Link analysis

Welcome to the LInX Carolinas

The Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) launched the Law Enforcement Information Exchange (LInX) initiative in 2003. LInX is designed to enhance information sharing between local, state, and federal law enforcement in areas of strategic importance to the Department of the Navy. LInX provides participating law enforcement partner agencies with secure access to regional crime and incident data and the tools needed to process it, enabling investigators to search across jurisdictional boundaries to help solve crimes and resolve suspicious events. LInX is designed to facilitate cooperation and sharing. Ownership and control of the data remains with the agency that provided it.

The LInX regions depicted clockwise starting with the Northeast on the map below are:

Northeast
National Capital
Virginia
Carolinas
Southeast

Board News

NC Association of Chiefs of Police announced their support of the NCIS-LInX System and its expansion to the remaining law enforcement agencies, see Chief John Letteney’s Letter, President.

The CJIN Board has successfully connected the two largest regional systems in NC, the Charlotte Regional Information Sharing System (CRISS) and the Law Enforcement Information Exchange (LInX) System which was developed by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) and is being maintained by Northrop Grumman. This initiative has been achieved and now the CJIN Board has obtained funding for eight additional agencies to connect to the LInX system – these agencies account for approximately 10% of North Carolina. Details of these projects are located here.

Connections

i2 has built an interface between COPLINK and the U.S. Naval Criminal Investigative Service’s (NCIS) Law Enforcement Information Exchange (LInX), creating vital information sharing capabilities between local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. Developed by Northrop Grumman, LInX enhances information sharing between local, state and federal law enforcement in areas of strategic importance to the U.S. Navy and Department of Defense, including Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Hampton Roads, Va., Florida, Georgia, the Gulf Coast region, the National Capital Region, North Carolina, New Mexico and Southern California. LInX provides more than 800 participating law enforcement partner agencies with secure access to regional crime and incident data and the tools needed to process it, enabling investigators to search across jurisdictional boundaries to help solve crimes and resolve suspicious events.

Jail Administration – Pitt County Detention Center

The CJIN Staff requested that the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office share with the Board how the use of GuardTracker has automated the Pitt County Detention Center; Major Lawrence Whaley and Sgt. Clinton Williams gave a presentation on the solution that they created for the Detention Center. GuardTracker, which was a solution that Sgt. Clinton Williams developed as they were using a white board and post-it notes, now they have a fully integrated technological solution. The program has the potential to save jails throughout North Carolina tens of millions of dollars in savings; however, more important are the public safety features of the program that apply to both the guards and the inmates.
