(“CJIS”), the leading provider of market intelligence for Information Technology procurements in the criminal justice and public safety market, has been acquired by Intelligence Acquisition Co, LLC, a new company based in Reston, VA formed by government IT industry veteran David Heinemann and Curran Companies, a family run investment firm based in Kansas City, MO. “Curran Companies is a leading sponsor of strong, experienced management teams and is very excited to partner with Mr. Heinemann in the acquisition of CJIS” stated Wiley Curran.
Mr. Heinemann brings 30 years of information technology and information industry experience to CJIS.

The founders of CJIS, PJ Doyle, CJIS President and former CJIS Director for the State of Florida, and Cheryl Doyle, CJIS Vice President of Research, will continue in their executive and management roles at the company’s headquarters in Tallahassee, FL. “Cheryl and I know working with David will allow CJIS to continue to improve and expand the service we provide our clients” remarked PJ Doyle.
The company has opened a second office in northern Virginia, enhancing the sales and research capabilities of the company. Dan Kerrigan, formerly a sales executive at Vocus, INPUT and Comscore, has joined the company as Vice President of Sales.
“CJIS GROUP earned a great reputation, and a growing client base, by identifying opportunities in the pre-RFP stage through detailed budget/funding analysis and via direct conversations with key government decision makers. We intend to continue that focus and expand our offerings to include additional vertical markets at the state and local government level” according to Heinemann. He added “we also expect to provide our clients with additional complementary information services developed internally and through acquisition.”
