ARIES unifies access to data by eliminating paper and stand alone databases that cause typical bottlenecks.
Data are entered once by the arresting agencies and the data are inherited automatically in the other applications.
ARIES allows officers to see detailed information on what is happening all around the region in real time
One Application – Enormous Savings
“The sheriff’s homicide detectives came to my agency looking for records info on a victim that was found stabbed to death. When I ran him through ARIES I was able to supply them with the last time the subject was run, the city he was in when he was run, the people he was with, and the officer who ran him.
ARREST AND DETENTION DATA
Users have estimated that they save over 8 minutes were arrest. Using the latest annual statistics for Solano County of 19,373 arrests in calendar 2016, this system would have saved them 5,166 hours.
REAL TIME VIEWS
Perhaps the favorite application in ARIES is the “CAD on the Wall” which allows users to read large projected Google Maps of the region on the wall and see 911 events that are happening immediately.
AUTO PROBABLE CAUSE DECLARATION
The logistics of probable cause declarations emanating from arresting officers, then submitting a detailed document including and extensive narrative to a duty judge on a 24×7 basis was time consuming and stressful for all parties involved.
Data are entered once by the arresting agencies and the data are inherited automatically in the other applications. The system operates on a secure, closed Intranet and is managed by the IT department of the County.
Hunter Research, Inc. (HRI) is a system integrator of nearly 40 years creating custom applications for public and private clients. After the tragic 9/11 disaster, HRI “connected the dots” for 104 law enforcement agencies in 5 counties who now can query each other’s CAD, RMS, JMS, License Plates, etc., to identify and locate persons of interest.
HRI evaluated what 58 California counties had accomplished in their first two years of the AB109 “realignment” process as selected state prisoners were reassigned to county jails and probation supervision.
HRI interviewed many of the larger agencies in California to determine their “readiness” to convert FBI reporting systems from the UCR to the NIBRS standard. Detailed reports were written for the agencies.
HRI has performed projects for the governor’s office in 35 states in the nation and recently provided assessments and system designs for the states of Ohio (Statewide Probation system), Delaware (Conversion of mainframe probation system to relational databases), Colorado (Linking jail health systems to community health systems for a “continuity of care” approach for individual inmates), South Dakota (Linking all counties to a statewide records system).
HRI has converted jail data from legacy mainframe systems to more modern, flexible systems for Alameda County, CA, San Mateo County, CA, Contra Costa County, CA, and is presently doing the same for Sacramento County, CA and Orange County, CA making sure the jail staff can move forward with more labor saving systems having their legacy data intact.
“I found impeachment info on defense trial witnesses. I can locate report numbers for investigation requests to police departments, saving both me and the department’s time. I found out that the defense witness was actually the defendant’s uncle, which wasn’t disclosed by the defense.”
“The sheriff’s homicide detectives came to my agency looking for records info on a victim that was found stabbed to death. When I ran him through the Hunter Research ARIES regional data sharing system, I was able to supply them with the last time the subject was run, the city he was in when he was run, the people he was with, and the officer who ran him. This provided vital information to the detectives at it pointed them in the direction of the subject’s known associates, who he was with the day prior to his death, and where he was the day before he was killed.”
“I was looking for a suspect whose identity I didn’t know. I used Hunter Research’s ARIES by inputting the license plate the suspect was driving. He was not the R/O, but had been arrested by Oakley PD two days prior to my inquiry. I was able to ID all involved parties (3 suspects). I investigated the case and got a felony filing on all three. Without ARIES, this case easily could have gone unsolved. I am a dedicated and firm believer in ARIES.”
