CopLink links the criminal records from participating agencies into 1 database. Member agencies said it will help investigators spot trends, develop leads, and solve crimes much faster than before.

Several police chiefs, county sheriffs and district attorneys in Colorado say the new CopLink search engine will revolutionize crime fighting the same way fingerprints did 100 years ago, or that DNA did 20 years ago.

By being able to cross reference and analyze data from multiple departments, law enforcement officials can now accomplish work in 10 minutes that would previously have taken a month or more.
