UNION COUNTY – County police will soon be linked with 10 other local law enforcement agencies through the New Jersey Data Exchange Program.
Using $400,000 in federal and state Homeland Security funding, the program will enable communication between Union County Police, New Jersey State Police, and municipal police departments in Elizabeth, Berkeley Heights, Roselle Park, Mountainside, Scotch Plains, Roselle, Fanwood, Linden, Plainfield and Springfield.
Departments connected to the system will have access to crime fighting information through in-car mobile data computers. The computer aided dispatch and records management systems of these agencies will be upgraded and configured to extract and import real-time criminal incident information into a central intelligence server hosted by the Union County Prosecutor’s office.
Information, including arrest records, outstanding warrants and incident reports, will be shared with law enforcement agencies in the network.
