Spillman Technologies Receives IJIS Institute Award

Ashburn, Va., January 31, 2012. The IJIS Institute—a nonprofit organization that focuses on mission-critical information sharing for justice, public safety, and homeland security—is happy to announce Spillman Technologies as the recipient of the 2012 IJIS Institute Member Appreciation Award.

Spillman Technologies received the award on Thursday, January 19, 2012 at the IJIS Institute Winter Industry Briefing. Spillman Technologies was nominated for the company’s outstanding contributions to the achievements of several IJIS Institute committees this year and since the founding of the Institute.

The central element that makes Spillman Technologies a worthy recipient of the award is their commitment in 2011, as well as in prior years, to participation in, and leadership of, IJIS Institute committee work. Specifically cited is the service of Steve Hoggard, who has served for more than four years as Chair of the IJIS Public Safety Technology Standards Committee (IPSTSC). Above and beyond the many volunteer hours (more than 140 in 2011 alone) he has dedicated, Steve has been the “motivating factor” in the tremendous productivity of this committee, including the recent completion of the Data Sharing Between CAD Systemswhite paper.

Spillman Technologies should also be recognized for its participation in other IJIS Institute committee work. In addition to current membership on the CJIS Program Advisory Committee (CPAC), the firm has made valuable contributions recently to the NIBRS/N-DEx Advisory Committee and the Public Safety Data Interoperability (PSDI) Committee.

IJIS Institute Executive Director Steve Ambrosini said, “Spillman Technologies’ depth of commitment to the mission of the IJIS Institute is exhibited in the drive and focus with which they approach industry thought leadership and participation in leadership activities, as well as their willingness to volunteer company resources to Institute projects or initiatives. We are happy to be presenting the firm with our 2012 Member Appreciation Award.”

The IJIS Institute Member Appreciation Award is presented annually at the IJIS Institute Winter and Summer Industry Briefings to the Member company who has demonstrated outstanding contribution to the Institute during the previous 12 months. Candidates for the award are nominated by IJIS Institute leadership, staff, committee chairs, Members, and Affiliates, and represent significant contributions to information sharing through their active participation in the work and mission of the IJIS Institute. Previous recipients of the award include URL Integration (Summer 2010), Analysts International Corporation (Winter 2010), VisionAIR (Summer 2009), and MTG Management Consultants, LLC (Winter 2009).
