AWS Signs CJIS Addendum with the City of Plano, Texas

AWS has signed a Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) agreement with the City of Plano, Texas. This is the eighth CJIS security addendum signed by AWS with jurisdictions across the United States.

This signed addendum allows the City of Plano to leverage the benefits of AWS GovCloud (US), which includes the highest levels of information security for state and local law enforcement agencies like encryption and access control features.

“We are excited to announce that the City of Plano and the Plano Police Department have signed a CJIS Security Addendum with Amazon Web Services. This will allow us to leverage the security and scalability of the cloud so our police department and other city agencies can utilize the most innovative technologies. We look forward to being able to share our outcomes as best practices for other cities to follow,” said Bruce Glasscock, City Manager, City of Plano.

Law enforcement agencies around the country are using AWS to meet security and compliance requirements, and to leverage our broad partner ecosystem including body camera providers, digital evidence management systems, computer aided dispatch systems, video redaction software providers, and records management systems.

AWS continues to engage with the law enforcement community through venues like the Major Cities Chiefs Association Conference in Washington, DC this week, where we are a Four Star Sponsor. We look forward to working with the organization to identify and help solve public safety challenges and emerging issues using cloud technology.
