Crime Database Loses Participation of Another State

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on October 22, 2003

Georgia takes a pass on anti-terror crime database: Georgia has joined five other states that have opted to suspend participation, due to privacy concerns, in the DOJ initiated MATRIX (Multistate Anti-Terrorism Information Exchange) project.

  • According to a statement by Gov. Sonny Perdue, “The State of Georgia will not transfer any additional information to the company responsible for the MATRIX project. I have held serious concerns about the privacy issues involved with this project all along, and have decided it is in the best interest of the people of Georgia that our state have no further participation in the MATRIX pilot project.”
