FINDER is a vendor neutral, distributed law enforcement investigative lead generation tool. It allows law enforcement agencies to share various records and requested data sets (ALPR, Gunshot detection, etc.) with other participating law enforcement agencies. These records are shared after being translated into a uniform FINDER format. Collaborations with other law enforcement systems provide access to hundreds of additional agencies’ records with the ability to integrate additional tools like facial recognition, public records, and more.
FINDER does not warehouse data; your agency’s data remains at your agency. FINDER provides an interface to allow other agencies to see a copy of your records while leaving you in control of your data.
Necessary steps to get FINDER data sharing installed and running at your agency.
FINDER can run on most systems, but it will run only as well as the agency system on which it’s placed.
Minimal hardware specifications for a FINDER server are:
If your agency wishes to install FINDER on a Virtual Server:
FINDER Software Solutions also offers custom ETL work. This process allows any agency to transfer their legacy data from one database to another. This process is perfect for those agencies that need to change RMS systems and want to transfer their legacy data.
We also specialize in developing Application Program Interfaces(APIs) to enhance agencies’ ability to utilize other custom software systems such as mapping, analytical programs, and external law enforcement data sources.
Distributed, Federated Architecture
FINDER does not warehouse data; your agency’s data remains at your agency. FINDER provides an interface to allow other agencies to have access to your information, while leaving you in control of your data.
However, FINDER can be implemented for data warehouses which require data storage at a specific law enforcement agency.
LEXS-SR and CJIS Compliant
FINDER is designated to meet the technological directives established by the federal government for sharing law enforcement data including LEXS-ST, CJIS, and FIPS 140-2. FINDER also uses AWS GovCloud. This ensures a path to future expansion.
