Michigan Core Service Bureau

Core Technology’s Service Bureau (CSB) is a subscription service that provides access to a variety of information sources, without requiring the agency to purchase their own server software. Public Safety agencies that do not have their own access to State of Michigan data may find it cost effective to connect to the Core Technology Service Bureau instead of connecting directly and as a backup for vital information.

The Core Service Bureau offers desktop, car or handheld access to the Michigan Law Enforcement Information System (LEIN) and Talon Incident Management System (TIMS) using Talon® clients. Talon clients offered include interface connection, access to driver’s license images (if available) through MIDIRS and agency Record Managements Systems that participate in the I-Services Gateway.
