Douglas County Sheriff David A. Weaver has become part of the
Colorado Information Sharing Consortium, with 42 other law
enforcement agencies from across the State of Colorado.
The consortium was formed in 2008 by public safety leaders from
across the state. It is the governing board for a new statewide
network designed to empower officers and deputies to fight crime
through state-of-the-art data sharing and analysis.
The consortium has 42 members and continues to grow.
The vision of the board is that eventually all 154 police
departments and 62 sheriffs’ offices in Colorado, and every officer
and deputy, will be online.
Using a system known as “COPLINK” the new network allows cops
and detectives to analyze information regarding individuals,
property, vehicles and incidents from various state and local law
What used to take hours, days or months to research can now
happen in a matter of minutes.
On May 26, at 10:30 a.m. Weaver joined 42 other law enforcement
representatives on the west steps of the state Capitol to celebrate
the break through of this statewide data sharing network.
“I am very pleased to be part of this new wave of crime-fighting
technology. This information sharing ability should have happened
years ago, it sure would have helped fight crime, but at least the
ability is here now and I am proud to be part of this network,”
