This week, WSP was recognized by the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) for two groundbreaking Information Technology (IT) projects, the Washington State Sexual Assault Tracking System and Using UAS Technology and Crime Scene Reconstruction.
Given annually to honor innovation and excellence in the use of IT in state government, the NASCIO Awards Committee selected 10 award recipients from over 130 award nominations nationwide.

Washington State Sexual Assault Kit Tracking System was selected as a NASCIO 2019 State Information Technology (IT) Recognition Awards recipient in the State CIO Office Special Recognition category.
The Sexual Assault Kit Tracking System improves the care of sexual assault survivors, assists the coordination of multidisciplinary efforts to obtain justice, and provides accountability and efficiency in processing sexual assault kits in Washington State.
Using UAS Technology in Collision and Crime Scene Reconstruction, was selected as a NASCIO 2019 State Information Technology (IT) Recognition Awards recipient in the Emerging and Innovative Technologies category.
WSP’s use of Unmanned Aerial Systems has resulted in a significant reduction in road closure time and congestion associated with accident investigations, greatly improved investigative forensic documentation, and improved officer safety as investigations are conducted from the air rather than in the congested roadways.
We will continue to seek out the latest technology to help do our jobs more efficiently and effectively while serving the citizens of Washington State.
