State Cites Problems With Police Database Under Construction

From the Associated Press — Michigan officials ordered a private contractor to halt work on a multimillion-dollar state police database because it isn’t working. The contractor, Information Builders, was told to stop by February 10 due to the “inoperable data hub.” The letter was obtained by the Detroit Free Press. Separately, the attorney general’s office disputed a $2.6 million bill from
Information Builders. There was no immediate comment from the company. The $12.2 million contract covers a database with criminal records, traffic crashes and other incidents.
