Columbo [2005-2006 and 2010-2011]:

Mining over 20 criminal justice databases, Columbo is a high-traffic, high-availibility secure crime analysis system used by the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD). In 2005 and 2006, I contributed heavily to the development, deployment, and quality assurance of Columbo. While working at MPD, I developed a new "Person Search" module for Columbo that allows officers to search for subjects in real-time throughout 12 databases using a single, simplified user interface. I also helped provide real-time, on-site technical, desktop, and system administrative support for Columbo as required to both police officers and civilians during morning crime briefings directed by Executive Assistant Chief Michael J. Fitzgerald and Chief of Police Charles H. Ramsey in the Synchronized Operations Command Complex (SOCC), Department headquarters.
In 2010 and 2011, under Police Chief Cathy Lanier, serving as both a Project Manager and Senior-level Software Engineer, I led efforts to correct long-standing information sharing problems impacting Columbo's Sex Offender Registry data through inter-agency communications, collaboration, and extensive troubleshooting. Of course, this application is not open to the general public and snapshots of this sensitive system cannot be displayed on this site.
