LLIS Good Story: The Indiana Department of Correction and the Indiana Intelligence Fusion Center Partnership   [open pdf - 68KB]

"The Indiana Department of Correction (IDOC) and the Indiana Intelligence Fusion Center (IIFC) partnered to facilitate information exchange and collaboration. The partnership has established the Law Enforcement Notification System (LENS), the Fugitive Apprehension Unit, and the Gang Intelligence Initiative. [...] The IDOC oversees the operations of 32 correctional facilities that house 27,000 inmates across Indiana's 10 parole districts. Recent increases in inmate radicalization, gang violence, and repeat offenders across the state prompted IDOC officials to reevaluate and prioritize their information requirements. IDOC officials wanted to be able to better recognize and respond to these threats by having access to federal, state, and local threat assessments, intelligence products, and information databases. Additionally, while the IDOC releases approximately 16,500 inmates each year, the department had no mechanism for notifying law enforcement officers in a particular jurisdiction of an imminent inmate release. The IDOC also lacked resources to investigate outstanding cases of inmates who violated their paroles or absconded from prison."
