Law Enforcement


The Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Criminal Justice (LCLE) and the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Association (LSA) contracted with TEI originally in 1994 to develop information management systems to support Louisiana crime reporting programs. Over the decades, TEI has been awarded yearly contracts to create, sustain and evolve the crime reporting systems to leverage the latest technology and to meet Federal Crime reporting standards. Using the enormous capabilities of the Internet became imperative for these agencies to collect criminal records data, report state crime statistics to the FBI, track peace officer qualifications, and schedule training for the many classes offered by LCLE. Our analysts and software engineers work daily with LCLE and LSA staff professionals to enhance the capability of these systems to make law enforcement in Louisiana more useful.

Today, systems developed by TEI are used throughout the entire law enforcement community, from small-town police departments to sheriff’s offices to the state’s primary agency for coordinating law enforcement and criminal justice.

Louisiana Crime Reporting

Teaming up with LSA and LCLE, TEI established and maintains a fully functional system to capture all steps and requirements of crime reporting in Louisiana. The National Crime Statistics Exchange (NCS-X) initiative, spearheaded by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, is undertaking efforts to expand reporting of more detailed crime incident data among law enforcement agencies throughout the United States. The goal of NCS-X is to increase the number of agencies that report data to the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) managed by the FBI so that nationally representative estimates of crime can be prepared and analyzed.
