MCLEAN, Va., July 30, 2012 -- Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) announced today that it has expanded its membership in the IJIS Institute, a nonprofit organization focused on improving critical information sharing for those who provide public safety and administer justice in our communities .

"We actively support public safety and law enforcement programs with industry-leading solutions in cybersecurity, situational awareness, command and control, mission-critical communications and infrastructure services," said Ed Sturms, vice president, civil cyber and security, Northrop Grumman Information Systems. "Our support for the IJIS helps us expand our contributions to civil law enforcement and public safety programs and furthers the institute's mission to unite the private and public sectors for improving mission-critical information sharing."

Northrop Grumman provides cybersecurity solutions and critical network operations for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security; command and control systems for police, fire and emergency services, and mission-critical network and IT services to city, county and state government agencies. In addition, it provides seamless wireless communications to the Navy's first responders to securely exchange information with local law enforcement agencies across the country and data exchange programs for the Department of Justice, FBI and other organizations. The company also supports New York City with mission-critical communications for a wide array of public service and public safety applications.
