An added benefit of Azure Government for government and on-premises is the ability to build new and innovative solutions on the Azure platform. A notable example is VIEVU, which provides a memory-based system, based on the Azure government cloud, to enable law enforcement authorities to collect and archive video evidence collected by police force cameras and other police investigations. Microsoft and VIEVU recently implemented a pilot program with the Oakland Police Department to better understand security and privacy considerations when implementing body-worn cameras that store film material in the cloud. By adhering to these standards, California law enforcement agencies can use Microsoft Office 365 in the cloud to process sensitive CJIS data that has certain strict parameters that must be met to be stored in a cloud solution. CaseLines is the world`s most comprehensive platform for the exchange of documents and multimedia between judicial authorities and legal teams for case preparation and courtroom presentation. Our solution allows multi-function agencies to create a common platform for sharing documents and multimedia, without the need for costly integrations or legacy system exchanges. Governments have unique and strict compliance requirements in the areas of security and data protection, which require providers to invest heavily in these areas. Previously, the City of Los Angeles attributed the failure to provide Google Apps to the LAPD to the service`s inability to comply with CJIS rules. Microsoft has evaluated the operating policies and procedures of Microsoft Azure Government, Microsoft Office 365 U.S. Government, and Microsoft Dynamics 365 U.S. Government and will confirm in applicable service agreements that they are able to meet FBI requirements for the use of En Scope services in applicable service agreements. The FBI does not offer any certification of Microsoft`s compliance with CJIS requirements. Instead, a Microsoft certificate is included in agreements between Microsoft and a state`s CJIS authority, as well as between Microsoft and its customers.

The FBI`s CJIS Security Policy sets out the requirements for the use of cloud services by law enforcement and government authorities for the transfer, storage, and processing of CJI data. The guidelines come from presidential and FBI directives, federal law, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the Criminal Justice Advisory Council. All private contractors who process CJI data must sign the security endorsement, according to the FBI. The Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) division of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) provides access to criminal forensic information (CJI) e.g. fingerprints and criminal histories. . . .
