Every advancement IBM has made to help law enforcement in the business of fighting crime has been a direct result of close working relationships established between IBMers and law enforcement officials. By keeping lines of communication open, honest and committed through the years, IBM has been able to deliver important and influential technology solutions in law enforcement. A true team effort by both IBMers and public servants, the main beneficiaries of this relationship has always been, and will continue to be, the communities our law enforcement officials so proudly serve.
