Washington State Patrol Deploys State-of-the-Art Datamaxx Message Switch to Share Criminal Justice Information

As 2014 begins to come to a close, we at Datamaxx are pleased to tell you about one of our proudest accomplishments from this exciting year. Washington State Patrol (WSP), the Control Terminal Agency for the State of Washington, recently completed the replacement of its message switch, A Central Computerized Enforcement Service System (ACCESS), along with a statewide deployment of Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) workstations and an archive system.  WSP chose the Datamaxx Omnixx Enterprise Platform with Omnixx Message Broker to replace its outdated, proprietary Level II switch.

The goal of the new ACCESS system was to provide flexible, reliable, and accurate message switching and information access within and among law enforcement and criminal justice agencies in Washington State and across the United States. And, we are excited to report the new message switch from Datamaxx is averaging 1.25 million transactions per day and nearly 40 million per month. In addition, the new ACCESS system interfaces with an impressive six data sources, including NCIC (National Crime Information Center) and Nlets (the International Justice and Public Safety Network), and has maintained a 98% uptime. While supporting six years of online data plus the current year, the system services 123 regional and 1,607 non-regional agencies.

WSP Message Switch Statistics

The new Omnixx Message Broker system is processing one of the highest CJIS message volumes in the country.

This project was an extraordinary undertaking and we are very proud of the results, which were due to the hard work of and partnerships between Datamaxx team members and WSP leaders. With such a high number of users, regionals, and message transactions, deploying this type of solution presented a number of challenges. In spite of these obstacles, the Omnixx Enterprise Platform deployment was a seamless migration for the nearly 25,000 users who access the system both directly and via their own agency’s systems, such as a Computer Aided Dispatch.
