NCIS Deputy Director, Christopher Cote, gave the CJIN Board an overview of the LInX project. This is a Department of the Navy product that was designed to share information between NCIS and local law enforcement to protect the surrounding Naval Installations and its personnel. There are over 1800 Law Enforcement Agencies that contribute and/or share data today, with NCIS. There are existing partnerships between the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security within each of the 14 regions that have LInX deployed. Director Cote explained the origins of the project, the type of data that is collected in the program, how it is used, the status of the program, where they are now in the United States, the future development of the project, the successful connection of LInX to NDEx, LInX Success stories, security of the program and the governance of LInX. Director Cote then went into a live demonstration of the project.
