HUGHES CREATES ADVISORY COUNCIL TO FOCUS ON LAW ENFORCEMENT TECHNOLOGY NEEDS

 WASHINGTON, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- A law enforcement advisory council has been created by Hughes Aircraft Co. to provide insight into the information technology needs of the law enforcement community at the federal, state and local levels.
 The creation of the council was announced by Wayne Shelton, president of the Reston, Va.-based Hughes Information Technology Co. and Stu Moore president of Heardon, Va.-based Hughes Training Inc. Hughes is a unit of GM Hughes Electronics.
 The four-member council, made up of current and former senior members of the law enforcement and criminal justice community, will support business development efforts and program implementation within Hughes for such agencies as the Department of Justice.
 The council will advise multiple Hughes business units to better understand the needs, constraints and practical issues facing the law enforcement and criminal justice community.
 The four members are:
 -- Dr. Lee Colwell, former deputy director of the FBI and a professor of criminal justice and director of the Criminal Justice Institute at the University of Arkansas, who will serve as chairman of the council;
 -- Robert L. Ortiz, former bureau chief of the New Mexico Department of Public Safety;
 -- C. Roland Vaughn III, city manager and chief of police of Conyers, Ga., and past president of the International Association of Chiefs of Police; and
 -- William L. Reed, president of the Institute for Intergovernmental Research in Albuquerque, N.M.
 "Hughes will draw on the advice of the council as the company continues its efforts to apply its defense industry experience and technologies to the law enforcement area," said Shelton. "We will be pursuing projects supporting programs such as the FBI's Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System, now under development."
 Hughes is bidding for the Identification Tasking and Networking segment of the system which will manage the daily workload of fingerprint identification requests into the FBI's Clarksburg, W.Va., facility and the Washington D.C. headquarters. The segment will execute search requests, support communications within the system and provide a paperless National Fingerprint File.
 "This type of technology transfer is a natural for Hughes," said Moore. "We are a state-of-the-art leader in creating realistic simulated environments by combining data bases, display systems and computer image generation systems.
 "Hughes experience includes more than 800 full capability visual and simulation systems. Recent applications support accident reconstruction visualization and spatial data analysis projects. Hughes technologies are well-suited to provide solutions to law enforcement challenges such as situation assessment, mission planning, mission rehearsal activities and large data base management."
 The earnings of GM Hughes Electronics Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of General Motors Corp., are used to calculate the earnings per share of General Motors Class H Common Stock (NYSE: GMH).
