Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force Utilizes Advanced Investigative Software from CODY Systems.

Evidence, Records and Visual Analysis tracking solution will aid drug enforcement team throughout Ozark region of Missouri

POTTSTOWN, Pa. -- CODY Systems, the industry leader in integrated public safety software for real-time collection, analysis and sharing of critical data for public safety, law enforcement and intelligence agencies, today announced that the Combined Ozarks Multi-Jurisdictional Enforcement Team (C.O.M.E.T.) in Missouri has deployed its Records Management and barcoding/evidence tracking system, as well as the CODY Data Visualizer, which studies entity relationships to uncover association networks by generating and visualizing inferential links between all types of entities in the CODY database.

C.O.M.E.T. is a regional task force comprised of Missouri State Highway Patrol, the Christian, Stone, Taney, Greene, Polk, Lawrence and Webster counties sheriff's departments and 29 local police departments and the Stone County Prosecutor's Office whose primary task is counter-drug investigations and enforcement. As C.O.M.E.T. cooperates with many agencies to solve crimes and disturb drug activity within its region of the state, the agency needed a more efficient means of keeping tabs on criminals, criminal records, evidence and known associates of drug traffickers.

CODY Records[TM] is a comprehensive records management, analysis and reporting module that allows agencies to organize, manage, cross-reference and effectively use all the various types of records collected. CODY Records provides an unparalleled level of database integration and embedded analysis, enabling users to concurrently access, search for, report on and analyze all information collected by the agency on any person, incident, vehicle, business, piece of property/evidence, etc., as well as associations between them in one intuitive interface.

With CODY's Barcoding and Evidence Tracking System, C.O.M.E.T. has the ability to check evidence in and out of the agency when it is being stored after an arrest or drug bust, is transported to court for evidence in a hearing and is then transported back to the agency's storage facility. The technology gives the agency the ability to see who has handled the evidence, as well as keep records on its size, weight and whereabouts.

CODY's Data Visualizer[TM] gives the agency the ability to expose relationships among records at multiple levels of association through a number of methods, including people to people, vehicle to people, incidents to people and property to people. In the event the agency is trying to track down a suspect but cannot find him or her, agents can use the data visualizer as a means to find known associates and locations where they may come in contact with the subject they are searching for. The relationships between records are displayed on an interactive link tree that investigators can use to gain more information on any person, vehicle, incident, etc. of interest.

"The illegal drug business continues to be an ever-present challenge for law enforcement and we understand the need to get out ahead of it, slow it down and help law enforcement get illegal drugs out of our homes and off the streets," said CODY Systems' CEO Fran Heffner. "C.O.M.E.T. will now have the upper hand in tracking, capturing and decreasing the growth of this problem. The agency will have a better view into certain individuals' histories and will be able to piece together investigations to bring about more arrests and speedier convictions."
