“It allows us to see what may be coming our way,” says Police Chief Michael Scott. “We are adjacent to the city. If someone carjacks a car in D.C. within a few blocks of our border, chances are they will head into Mount Rainier, not D.C.

“It gives us a heads up and increases officer safety. Our guys are able to know what is going on around them from a D.C.perspective. We are able to see when a major crime occurs close to us so we know what to be on the lookout for,” he says.

Threat Mitigation

TransGlobal’s threat mitigation framework involves 4 phases: 1) Identifying threat source which can include terrorists, crimes, earthquakes, chemical or biological attacks; 2) a threat mitigation strategy involving threat mitigation components such as suspicious activity reporting (SAR), tactical exchange, vulnerability assessment, or the identification of persons of interest; 3) an early intervention strategy actualizing threat mitigation components such as the empowerment of police officers by conducting intelligence-led precision patrols versus blind patrols; and 4) threat management which is the emergency operation management and includes data fusion center capability based on interfaces with disparate data sources. TransGlobal’s solutions are able to provide threat mitigation solutions.

Interoperability

Since 9-11 a tremendous amount of teamwork has taken place between agencies resulting in the development of secure, enhanced super data highways and data exchange standards.  Agreements have been forged between LE agencies for the structure and sharing of data.  Seventy-two fusion centers have been created to enhance the multi-agency sharing and analysis of data, focusing heavily on homeland security.  Participating agency members are working in close proximity viewing their own systems.  The closeness has created a trust between agency members; however, are they truly on the same page?  TransGlobal’s SAMS solution has the ability to provide the entire Nation with a common operating platform (COP) Bridging Gaps in Communication.

TransGlobal Business Systems, Inc, a local provider of situational awareness technologies, have partnered up with several Guardian One companies,  Prince Georges County and Prince George’s Economic Development Corporation to showcase the advances in technologies since the tragic events of September 11th, 2001.   Collectively, the Guardian One companies are strongly advocating “public and private” collaboration as a means of readiness and preparedness for all potential threats to our communities. These solutions incorporate the disciplines of: public safety and homeland security organizations information sharing systems; CAD integration for cross-area situational awareness and interoperability; and the capability of visualizing, traditionally, isolated hot spots of intelligence.  These technologies position the various public safety and law enforcement stakeholders to become more proactive and informed, rather than reactivate and blind. This type of collaborations advances the interest of public safety in general and incentivizes citizen to become involved in their own security. More recently, this was demonstrated when citizens from Prince George’s County became involved in working with both the Prince George’s County Emergency Response (Prince Georges County Award) and the Metropolitan Police Department, to enable  transparency and awareness related to incidents and potential threats that could occur across  their respective jurisdictional boundaries. During the course of these activities, the MPD’s situational awareness solution was activated in advance of Hurricane Irene to support its response to all potential threats within Washington D.C. The Transglobal Solution also addresses the importance of “hands free” operation, not requiring operator input.  The data is automatically shared to the interested jurisdictions.  It does not require manual input and is not subject to human error.

Enterprise Architecture is a blueprint that explains how all the Information Technology and Management elements work together as a whole. TransGlobal has been providing Information Technology and Enterprise Architecture consulting for the past 20 years. We’ve provided the Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) with consulting services according to the Federal Enterprise Architecture Framework (FEAF) based on Zachman’s methodology. This effort entailed mapping the agency’s business goals/objectives to business functions to encourage further development of the entire Enterprise Architecture. TransGlobal developed a series of step-by-step processes to guide the agency towards completing the data architecture, application architecture, and technology architecture.

Tranglobal Business Systems, specialty in Business Process Re-Engineering  and Business Transformation initiatives in general and has conducted a number of Enterprise Architecture (EA) assessments as a subcomponent of many of these initiatives. Consequently, we have a wealth of Subject Matter Expertise in this particular discipline.  It is our experience that an agency client has already committed to a specific EA methodology or approach, while attempting to streamline and derive efficiencies from their existing investments, processes while continuing their business as usual operations towards their general business objective.
