Ten law enforcement agencies from Lenawee County will become members of the Courts Law Enforcement Management Information System (CLEMIS), one of the largest public safety information sharing systems in the United States, Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson announced today.
The addition of the Lenawee County Sheriff and nine other police agencies expands CLEMIS’ footprint by 761 square miles impacting about 100,000 Lenawee County residents.
“CLEMIS is one of our greatest regional collaboration achievements in Southeast Michigan,” Patterson said. “More than 100 public safety agencies across eight counties are making our communities safer by sharing critical information to help solve crimes.”
CLEMIS, a division of Oakland County’s Department of Information Technology, uses innovative computer technology for criminal justice and public safety applications. By serving as a technical link among multiple agencies, CLEMIS promotes communication and sharing of criminal justice information.
The other Lenawee County law enforcement agencies that are joining CLEMIS include the City of Adrian, Adrian Township, Blissfield Village, Cambridge Township, Clinton Village, Hudson, Madison Township, Morenci, and Tecumseh. They will share information with agencies from Oakland, Genesee, Lapeer, Macomb, St. Clair, Washtenaw, and Wayne counties.
CLEMIS is more than just one system. CLEMIS provides enhanced 911, computer aided dispatch, mobile data computers, access to the Law Enforcement Information Network (LEIN), Consolidated Law Enforcement Advanced Records (CLEAR) Records Management System electronic citations, crash reports, Evidence & Property Management System, Auto-Impound Management System, biometric facial images (Mugshot ), biometric fingerprints (Livescan), crime mapping, and more.
“CLEMIS has proven itself time and again helping to solve criminal investigations and enabling agencies to work with each other to get the bad guys,” said Novi Public Safety Director David Molloy, who chairs the CLEMIS Advisory Board. “CLEMIS truly is a force multiplier – meaning one officer on the road today can do what several officers used to do.”
