Document Scanning & CJIS-Listed Company, BMI Imaging Systems, Exhibits At CLEARS
BMI highlights law enforcement records digitization and CJIS-compliant hosting at CLEARS conference 2023.
Sunnyvale, California – December 6, 2023
The California Law Enforcement Association of Records Supervisors (CLEARS) recently celebrated its 50th annual Training and Technology Seminar in Ventura Beach, with notable participation from BMI.
Law enforcement agencies often grapple with the complexities of managing records in various formats, including paper, microfilm, and microfiche, alongside navigating multiple document management systems and legacy data. The challenge intensifies with the need to digitize sensitive criminal justice information, which must be handled in compliance with the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy. Partnering with a CJIS-compliant vendor is crucial yet challenging for these agencies.
BMI, recognized as a CJIS-listed vendor, offers comprehensive solutions to law enforcement agencies for managing their records efficiently and securely.
Jake Walker, an account executive from BMI who attended the CLEARS seminar, emphasized the importance of data security in law enforcement. “Many law enforcement professionals are cautious about entrusting their records to a scanning partner due to the sensitive nature of the data. We understand these concerns. Our focus is not only on being CJIS-listed and compliant but also on adhering to NIST and SOC 2 Type II audit standards. We ensure the physical and digital protection of records, providing our clients with the assurance that their data is in safe hands.”
Established in 1958 as Bay Microfilm Incorporated, BMI Imaging Systems embarked on a mission to assist County Recorders with archiving land records on microfilm. By the 1960s, our reach extended to California’s premier universities, preserving their invaluable books and manuscripts. Additionally, our Library Microfilms Division formed strategic partnerships with over 200 newspapers, ensuring California’s rich local history remained accessible for future generations.
