Colorado's Most Populated County Selects Metatomix's Judicial Exchange Solution

El Paso County Extends Public Safety Commitment via Justice Information Sharing Initiative

WALTHAM, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 16, 2007 -- Metatomix, Inc., a leading provider of justice information sharing solutions to state and local governments, today announced that El Paso County, Colorado has selected Metatomix to implement its Judicial Data eXchange (JDX) product for El Paso County's Justice Information Exchange Model (JIEM©) information sharing initiatives.

JDX will allow El Paso County to implement an automated Summons exchange and Court Calendar Exchange. Agencies involved in the project include the Colorado Springs Police Department, El Paso Sheriffs Office, Combined Courts, and the District Attorney's Office.

Located in east central Colorado, El Paso County encompasses more than 2,158 square miles -- slightly more than twice the area of the state of Rhode Island.

"With Metatomix we saw a proven solution that can start small and expand and grow in stages. Their customers are very happy with the flexibility, results and value. We look forward to working with Metatomix to establish a solid, sustainable foundation for information sharing with our public safety agencies throughout El Paso County."
