Project Overview: The Science and Technology Directorate Command, Control and Interoperability Division's (CID) AZLink Project enables law enforcement units in the field to access and exchange criminal data (for example, criminal histories, mug shots, or incident reports) using hand-held, wireless, smartphone personal digital assistant (PDA) devices. Prior to the deployment of AZLink, many southern Arizona law enforcement units could only access critical criminal data from police radios or from computer systems located at headquarters. Based on this technology's performance on the frontlines, CID intends to provide more than 200 of the smartphone PDA devices to law enforcement units in at least 20 local, tribal, state, and federal agencies across Arizona. This project is part of the Knowledge Management Tools program area of CID.
