6K Systems: Improving Data Management Processes for Law Enforcement

Bryan Crittenton, President and CEO
Even at the turn of the decade, where digitalized workflows have become integral toevery industry today, law enforcement agencies in the US and many other countries still rely heavily on manual, paper-based processes. This constraint inevitably leads to several complications in the aggregation and structuring of vital information for various administrative activities. And this data can be anything ranging from criminal records to dexterous legal documents. According to Bryan Crittenton, an IT and project management veteran with over 25 years of experience, real information delivered at the right time improves the workflow of an agency, as their decision-making competencies are thoroughly supported. This proposition simply reinforces the fact that collecting, compartmentalizing, and storing information in a secure yet easily accessible manner is incredibly vital to help strengthen decision-making processes. Digitizing data is critical. To that end, Virginia-based 6K Systems focuses on assisting civilian agencies, law enforcement departments, and the Depart of Defense (DoD) in all matters related to IT and project management with the added benefits of data analytics expertise.

Founded in 2002, 6K Systems specializes in reviewing and analyzing information that reaches agencies—like the FBI—in the form of online tips and clues, alongside the data gathered on particular individuals through social media sources. “We help the government better access and understand information, empowering the administration to improve their decision-making processes in law enforcement,” explains Crittenton, who currently presides as the President and CEO of 6K Systems. The company’s ability to transition raw data into actionable information is particularly impressive as its staff of highly skilled and multidisciplinary professionals maintain key insights from their personal experiences to help provide a new dimension to data management.
If the need arises, 6K Systems’ staff quite literally scans through large quantities of paper-based sources and antiquated technologies for the purpose of digitizing the information. After which, they review the content comprehensively before it is integrated into existing systems to simplify the user’s experience. “We utilize a combination of manual processes, coupled with innovations in theIT space to transform data into usable information. Delivering this information directly to our government counterparts then becomes the main objective, allowing them to make decisions based on reliable data,” adds Crittenton.

6K Systems’ services go beyond data management, where it focuses on providing expert management consulting alongside ISO-certified quality, environmental, and information security management systems as well. The company’s IT services competencies shine when aiding clients in their application development processes and implementation of new systems—ideally customized law enforcement information solutions. 6K Systems additionally caters to supporting clients in bolstering their evidentiary management activities, forensic laboratory tasks, and other IT-related functions. It is also noteworthy that the company extends learning management and training services, where its highly qualified team assists law enforcement agencies in training their forces in areas concerning operational program management and decision-making.

“There are massive amounts of data available to help support law enforcement, and we are really good at transforming it into useful information, regardless of the source,” boasts Crittenton. With such confidence in his company’s abilities, the president is certain 6K Systems will create waves of significant improvement in the operations of law enforcement agencies throughout the US. Moving forward, the company intends to incorporate the latest developments in biometric technology as well to help facilitate newer data aggregation activities. The continuous advancements in AI-based technologies also show much promise in better transitioning data from paper- and manual-based sources for a more productive and higher-quality decision-making prowess in law enforcement across the nation.
