Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $418,000)

AJIS the country's primer criminal justice information sysem (CJIS), serving federal, state and local criminal justice agencies in San Diego and it environs. It serves as an exemplar for other systems and so provides NIJ a perfect testbed for its efforts to improve CJIS technologies. With the funding provided, ARJIS will add a web services component in its existing suite of law enforcement tools which will allow a user in the field to take a photo and upload it to a server-side component which will match it against the over 800,000 booking photos in the San Diego County node. Positive matches will then be processed on the server side and a proposed photo lineup will be sent back to the law enforcement agent for comparison and ability to run additional queries based on a name and date of birth standard search.
