Scenario 22

Authorization – Scenario 22

Scenario 22 Authorization (Data Ownership Security)
Capability Authorization; Automated Processing
Data Incident Report; Case File
Crime Drug Trafficking
Functional Areas Tactical; Operational

A New Jersey State Police (NJSP) officer stops Joseph Jones for speeding on the New Jersey Turnpike. After obtaining Jones’ permission, the officer searches the vehicle and finds marijuana. He arrests Jones for the marijuana possession. The NJSP submits an incident report to N-DEx on the stop and arrest.

N-DEx notifies the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) that the home address provided by Jones correlates to an address in a case it is working, involving a high-level member of a drug trafficking organization.

Outcome Because the PSP chose to control access to the drug trafficking case due to its sensitivity, N-DEx does not allow NJSP to see the correlation nor notify NJSP about the correlation, giving PSP the control to evaluate whether or not to contact the NJSP about Jones.
N-DEx Process that Allows Outcome See diagram below.

As depicted, N-DEx performs automated processing to correlate addresses between a sensitive drug investigation and a tactical incident report. Because PSP prohibited the sharing of information in case files it submitted on Jones, the correlation notification was only sent to the PSP.
