Share Article

Numerica Corporation is announcing a partnership with Carfax, Inc., to provide enhanced investigative tools to law enforcement agencies across the United States.

Through Lumen, Numerica’s flagship platform for law enforcement investigations, analysis, and data sharing, agencies have an integrated portal to search hundreds of millions of law enforcement records, while also accessing Carfax ® Vehicle History Reports through Carfax for Police. Ready access to comprehensive information helps investigators solve crimes faster and close more cases.

“Lumen® is designed, first and foremost, to help law enforcement quickly get the actionable information they need whenever and wherever they need it – whether a case report from another agency, a suspect mugshot, or a Vehicle History Report from Carfax,” said Jeff Poore, President of Numerica. “Integrating with Carfax for Police allows our customers, for free and with a single login, access to a vast database of valuable vehicle records directly from Lumen.”

Law enforcement agencies can access Vehicle History Reports from Lumen whenever viewing a Lumen vehicle record. With one click in Lumen, users can view reports and access the full array of investigative tools available within Carfax for Police. There are no up-front costs or ongoing fees required for law enforcement access to Carfax.

“Carfax for Police is already used by more than 2,500 agencies nationwide. The Carfax partnership with Numerica affords our customers even better ways to solve crimes faster and keep their communities safer,” said Mike Irvine, General Manager at Carfax. “We’re very excited to bring this capability to our customers.”

Lumen is an advanced analytics and data sharing platform specifically designed for law enforcement. Agencies seeking to integrate disparate data sources into a single, integrated, CJIS-compliant portal for investigations, analysis, and inter-jurisdictional sharing are turning to Numerica to meet their needs.
