ATLANTA and WASHINGTON — LexisNexis® Risk Solutions today announced it is further expanding its public safety solutions with the acquisition of all Lumen assets, a product line owned by Numerica Corporation, a Colorado-based company. Lumen is an integrated data platform leveraged by public safety analysts, investigators, patrol officers and commanders to help solve cases faster.
Lumen will become part of the product line of the Government group of LexisNexis Risk Solutions and its public safety and law enforcement solutions. Lumen customers will gain access to a larger law enforcement network with additional solutions, new data sets and continued advancements in analyzing and responding to crime to help solve cases faster and support officer safety initiatives.
“The acquisition of the Lumen product line of Numerica continues our 20-year investment and commitment to the public safety sector,” said Haywood Talcove, CEO, Government, LexisNexis Risk Solutions. “We will continue to foster the innovations that have made both LexisNexis Risk Solutions and Numerica leaders in the marketplace. We look forward to working with our joint customers and welcoming the new police agencies, including the Colorado Information Sharing Consortium (CISC).”
CISC is a government legal entity with a Board of Directors of nearly a dozen sheriffs, police chiefs, and or top commanders from Colorado law enforcement agencies sharing data. CISC was founded in 2014 to fund technology tools to connect member agency information, avoid duplication, share costs and prevent crime while protecting civil liberties.
“Over the last seven years, we have successfully developed and commercialized the Lumen product,” said Jeff Poore, Numerica Corporation president. “We are excited for our technology to continue to support the important mission of public safety with expanded capabilities from LexisNexis Risk Solutions. This was a strategic decision to allow an even greater focus on our core security and defense business to better meet current needs within those markets.”
“The CISC Board of Directors and team look forward to this new relationship with LexisNexis Risk Solutions; one that will help our member agencies provide exceptional public safety services to Colorado citizens for many years to come,” said Vince Line, bureau chief, Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office and CISC board chair.
