Justice Department plans to expand cops' access to data


The Justice Department plans to have a nationwide program to allow law enforcement officials from participating agencies to access data on each other’s unclassified systems, a senior department technology official said today.


Jeremy Warren, Justice’s chief technology officer, said the program would use a federated identity management approach to let officials use a single sign-on capability to access data from other participating organizations. Warren said a multiyear test for the program has been successful and the department plans to take it nationwide by the end of this year.
