The Capital Wireless Information Net (CapWIN) is a regional Public Safety and Transportation Coalition supported by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering’s Center for Advanced Transportation Technology (CATT) at the University of Maryland’s A. James Clark School of Engineering. Developed and governed by a regional group of public safety and transportation officials, the CapWIN system includes an application suite enabling: 1) incident coordination across agencies, regions, disciplines and at all levels of government; 2) secure one-to-one and group messaging as well as a skill-based searchable directory of individual first responders; and 3) access to operational data/resources, including regional transportation data and multiple state/federal law enforcement criminal databases, driver’s license photos, state and federal mug shots of wanted persons, violent gang members, and registered sex offenders.
