Pennsylvania State Police Upgrades to Memex Patriarch Software, Completes Rollout on Web
Milestones Mark 10th Anniversary of Memex-Pennsylvania State Police Partnership
VIENNA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Memex, Inc., the leading worldwide provider of intelligence management, data integration, search and analysis solutions, announced today that the Pennsylvania State Police has upgraded its criminal intelligence system to Memex Patriarch software and made the platform accessible to hundreds of state law enforcement officials over the Web.
“Memex prides itself on the fact that our first customer is still a customer. The Memex system is the foundation for hundreds of Pennsylvania state troopers, even those in remote locations, to access important intelligence data for doing their jobs.”
The Memex intelligence solution allows organizations to manage and retrieve intelligence that prevents all scales of crime, and it enables law enforcement to efficiently predict, prevent and respond to threats in real-time. Memex expands the availability and usability of intelligence through configurable software, flexible workflow management, multi-level security and a robust platform for information sharing.
“We have been working with the Pennsylvania State Police since 1999, and the agency has the distinction as our first State customer in the U.S.,” said David Carrick, CEO of Memex. “Memex prides itself on the fact that our first customer is still a customer. The Memex system is the foundation for hundreds of Pennsylvania state troopers, even those in remote locations, to access important intelligence data for doing their jobs.”
The Pennsylvania State Police also was the first Statewide Memex customer to deploy and use Memex Patriarch on the Web. Memex Patriarch is a highly advanced operational intelligence system that enables the secure input, management, development, analysis and information sharing of critical data across organizations and their partners.
“We’ve seen a rise in information sharing and collaboration since upgrading to Memex Patriarch and rolling it out on the Web,” said Major George Bivens of the Pennsylvania State Police. “We’ve built a solid relationship with Memex over the years as a result of the longevity of its technology and exceptional, responsive customer service. Our hope is to bring yet more information from our existing data silos under this new platform for accessibility by our Fusion/Criminal Intelligence Center, Watch Center, and all State Police officers.”
Serving a state population of 12.5 million people, the Pennsylvania State Police accesses intelligence data via the Web through Memex’s single source portal – whether officials are in their cars or at their desks. Memex Patriarch also has been integrated with the Pennsylvania State Police’s Officer Safety and 24/7 Situational Awareness initiatives.
“We have made a commitment to speed-of-delivery, education, consulting, customer satisfaction and project management to ensure the Pennsylvania State Police and other agencies achieve the full potential of our solution,” said Neil Schlisserman, Vice President of Memex Americas. “As a result, more than 90 percent of our customers in the Americas are presently using the Memex Patriarch platform, with more than 1/3 accessing and deploying via the Web.”
Memex has extensive experience working with Fusion Centers at the state, regional and city levels as well as with major statewide and large municipal law enforcement agencies. Its intelligence system is used for deconfliction and threat assessment, and provides the foundation for an Intelligence-led Policing (ILP) approach. Memex also integrates data from disparate sources, such as CAD (Computer-aided Dispatch), RMS (Records Management System), case and gangs management, Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR), and confidential informant management.
