​State of Nevada Department of Public Safety Selects Unisys-led Team for Major IT Modernization and Cloud Migration Project Supporting its Criminal Justice Information System

BLUE BELL, Pa., August 5, 2020Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced that the State of Nevada has selected a Unisys-led team to support its Department of Public Safety (DPS), Records, Communications and Compliance Division (RCCD) with a long-term, multi-phase effort to modernize various systems that comprise the Nevada Criminal Justice Information System (NCJIS). NCJIS provides both law enforcement information and civil applicant processing to assist thousands of statewide police officers as well as citizens requesting background check services.

Awarded on June 22, the project enhances DPS services to improve safety for law enforcement officers and the citizens of the State of Nevada, by modernizing both the way in which it handles information requests from criminal justice agencies and requests for background checks from the public. In addition to CloudForte® -- Unisys' secure solution for digital transformation and hybrid cloud management and application development—the work will rely heavily on the Unisys Law Enforcement Message Switch/Justice Exchange (LEMS/JX™), a solution designed specifically to support the exchange of law enforcement and criminal justice information.

Joining Unisys on the project is Diverse Computing, Inc., of Tallahassee, Florida, Analysts International Corporation of Duluth, Georgia, and Tailored Solutions Corporation of Salem, Oregon. Each brings strong justice and law enforcement capabilities to the project, including:  

  • eAgent CCH™, a completely modern computerized criminal history system provided by Diverse Computing
  • A powerful, easy access computer portal developed by Analyst International Corporation
  • FlexCheck™, a citizen-friendly background request system including a Brady Act gun purchase compliance component built by Tailored Solutions.

The majority of applications supporting NCJIS will be hosted and managed by Unisys in the Microsoft Azure Government Cloud.

"We are honored that Unisys was chosen to bring its industry knowledge and trusted Law Enforcement Message Switch/Justice Exchange to Nevada. Our extensive cloud migration, integration and IT modernization experience will help the state add critical system functionality designed to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of operations, thereby improving public safety and the customer experience for the citizens of Nevada," said Michael Morrison, vice president and general manager for Unisys Enterprise, Americas. "NCJIS will benefit from the solution delivered by the partnership of Unisys, DCI, AI, and Tailored Solutions and we believe this will be a model for NCJIS solutions in the future."
