Police in NC merge data on criminals with new system

Law enforcement agencies are using a computer system to access the criminal record of any offender in the state

By PoliceOne Staff

GREENVILLE, N.C. — Police in North Carolina unveiled a computer system that will allow agencies across the state to access criminal records from the same database.

Criminal Justice Law Enforcement Automated Data Services, or CJLEADS, merges four main law enforcement databases and 41 million files, according to WNCT. Police can go online to access the data, which includes information about outstanding warrants, arrest history, and gang activity.

Additionally, CJLEADS can also locate offenders monitored with ankle bracelets, issuing an "offender alert" when the legal status of a criminal changes. It warns a police officer who is approaching a dangerous person, telling them to take caution.

Michelle Amerson, senior crime analyst with the New Bern Police Department, said the program is long overdue.

"Normally, we're having to go to all the different sites, so this cuts it all down," Amerson said. "It’s going to be great."
