With LENS, Offender Data Quickly Reaches Officers on Beat, posted by The Third Branch News, United States Courts


A police officer on a DUI stop, logs into the online Law Enforcement Notification System (LENS) and finds that not only is the driver under federal supervision for a prior drug offense, but the conditions of release stipulate no alcohol use.

By statute, following release of a prisoner convicted of a drug trafficking crime, crime of violence, or sex offense, the U.S. Probation Office must notify the chief law enforcement officer of the state and of the local jurisdiction when an offender moves into their jurisdiction. All 94 probation offices nationwide are now using LENS to make these notifications easier and more efficiently. And because LENS notifies local law enforcement at the beginning of supervision, it also promotes greater public safety.
