FBI LAUNCHES NEXT GENERATION VIRTUAL COMMAND CENTER
To date, the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Criminal Justice Information Services Division (CJIS) Virtual Command Center (VCC) has supported over 6,500 operations worldwide, including Super Bowl 50 and Operation Cross Country. For the last 12 years, the VCC has assisted law enforcement (LE) agencies with managing special and sporting events, active shooters, warrant operations, kidnappings and missing persons, dignitary protection details, investigations and numerous other tactical and strategic operations.
The VCC minimizes the confusion and chaos that comes with incident management and allows personnel in the field and command centers a single, real-time common operating picture (COP).
For the last two years, the FBI CJIS Division VCC Support Team has been working to enhance the design, capability and functionality of the VCC. The team has been working closely with over 60 federal, state and local departments, offices, divisions and agencies, and continue to provide a world class platform. These partner agencies and departments have delivered critical feedback on their real world usage and provided hands-on testing of the new platform to ensure it meets high LE standards. The CJIS Division strives to meet the needs and requirements of law enforcement by adding functionality and capability, at the same time keeping it simple, effective and secure.
March 2016 marked CJIS Division’s deployment its next generation VCC with significant enhancements premised on mission partner feedback.
