Abstract: Artificial intelligence techniques are considered extremely valuable for effective law enforcement through the next decade. On a national and international level, the use of computer technology in the criminal justice system today is characterized by a large number of complex systems, large data stores with redundant and sometimes conflicting information of varying quality, little integration among systems, and poor support of the life-cycle from the initial crime report to final adjudication. Benefits of standardizing technology to interface with commercial systems are discussed in terms of architecture, cost savings, expert system technology, and expert system applications. 30 references.
