Johnson County joining police's expanded e-dragnet

Local police will have access to information from similar cases across central Indiana when investigating crimes after the county joins a sharing program with other police departments.

The program, IMB i2 COPLINK, is in use in Indianapolis and Hendricks counties and is planned to be expanded to include Johnson and Hamilton counties by the end of the year, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Glen Ruegsegger said.

The system allows an officer to share and search information gathered from every agency on the system and provides investigators tools that help find and sort pieces of information that may be relevant to their case. For example, searching for the name of a suspect in a case would pull up any information on file about that person, including mugshots or mentions in reports from other police departments in central Indiana.
