Vermont Department of Public Safety Selects Metatomix for Integrated Justice Data Sharing

mtx JDX Solution to Help Ensure Public Safety in Vermont

DEDHAM, MA--(Marketwire - November 18, 2009) - Metatomix, Inc., a leading provider of semantic solutions to justice and public safety, financial services, manufacturing and life sciences organizations, today announced that the Vermont Department of Public Safety is implementing the company's mtx Judicial Data Exchange (JDX) solution. Utilizing mtx JDX, the Vermont Department of Public Safety will be able to ensure that Sex Offender Registry information in the state is both accurate and up to date.

The mtx JDX solution will leverage the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) 2.0 standard. A partnership of the U.S. Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security, NIEM was designed to enable jurisdictions to effectively share critical information and support the day-to-day operations of agencies throughout the nation. By also leveraging Information Exchange Package Documentation (IEPD), the mtx JDX solution, when implemented, will seamlessly automate relevant sex offender information sharing between the Department of Corrections and the Sex Offender Registry.

"We chose Metatomix's mtx JDX product because it will help us provide quick access to sex offender address information that otherwise is transmitted through manual processes. This will help ensure the safety for the members of our community in the state," said Francis Aumand, Criminal Justice Services Director, Vermont Department of Public Safety. "The solution also has the ability for expanded functionality, which is important to us as our public safety needs will continue to evolve and grow in the future."

Vermont has been using the mtx Justice Inquiry System (JIS) for their Vermont Justice Information Sharing System (VJISS). VJISS is a query tool allowing the disparate police records management systems to be accessed with a single sign-on and a single query. "This tool provides a valuable investigative and officer safety tool for Vermont law enforcement officers," Aumand said.

"We're grateful to be working with the Vermont Department of Public Safety on such a critical project," said Metatomix CEO Jeff Dickerson. "This announcement further underscores the importance that Metatomix's innovative semantic solutions play in maximizing information justice sharing to ensure the public's safety not only in Vermont, but also across the country. We look forward to a long standing and successful relationship."
