Communications and Information Sharing
Providing Kentucky’s first responders with the ability to effectively communicate and share information is the commonwealth’s No. 1 public safety priority.
The Kentucky Office of Homeland Security's e-Warrants Project is revolutionizing the method of issuing, servicing and clearing warrants across the commonwealth by implementing a system that is accessible by all criminal-justice personnel.
On any given day, there are an estimated 300,000 unserved warrants in Kentucky. Kentucky has no statewide system for issuing, tracking, and serving most warrants. As a result, all counties experience difficulties with accessing the information needed to serve warrants. To combat these issues, KOHS is providing sponsorship and senior project management for the development and implementation of the Kentucky e-Warrants system.
The system is also designed to work on mobile-data terminals that do not have in-car Internet connectivity through a warrants module added to the Kentucky Open Portal Solution.
