Research and Analysis for JCTAWS From early 2011 to late 2012, Cotter Research was providing research and analyses to FEMA on the JCTAWS. Our primary role was to identify and report to FEMA the training needs law enforcement agencies have with their preparedness and ability to respond to a complex, coordinated attack. Cotter Research was awarded this opportunity to support JCTAWS by Scientific Research Corporation and SPAWAR Systems Center Atlantic.
CAD/RMS Report In July 2012, Cotter Research issued a survey to learn more about the challenges and lessons learned that law enforcement agencies are experiencing with computer aided dispatch (CAD) systems and records management systems (RMS). The impetus for this survey came from the Cotter Research Technology Report from June 2012. The CAD/RMS survey was open to the general public for response, but was targeted toward law enforcement and other government officials, private sector vendors and consultants, universities, and not-for-profit organizations.

Guidebook for Criminal Justice on Roadblocks & Solutions to Information Sharing South Carolina Research Authority awarded Cotter Research a contract to conduct an evaluation assessment of information sharing systems across the United States. The results of this assessment will be published in the second quarter of 2011 in the form of a technical report and a guidebook for organizations that have an interest in information sharing. This effort supported the information sharing portfolio of the National Institute of Justice. The release date is TBD.
