Case & Report Management

Our RMS supports the creation and management of the major case types that are used in day-to-day law enforcement operations.

Incident Case

Provides the ability for an officer to create and enter all the details for an incident and its related location, disposition, offenses, narratives, officers, arrests, persons, organizations, vehicles, property, and evidence. Other features include the ability to generate the primary report, supplemental/investigative report, and arrest reports.

Field Interview

Provides the ability for an officer to create and enter all the details for a field interview or contact and its related location, narratives, officers, persons, organizations, vehicles, and property. When completed officers can generate the field interview report for review or distribution.

Fire Case

Allows the officer to create and enter all the fires details (e.g. ignition causes, heat source) and its related location, narratives, officers, arrests, persons, organizations, vehicles, and property. It is robust enough however for any agency to take advantage of to track fire events. Additionally, if your department is required to report Clery Act events, the Fire Case will easily capture all of the data required for accurate reporting.

Accident Case

This case type provides the ability for an officer to create and enter all the details for a Georgia accident report. This includes the accident/scene details and its related location, narratives, officers, arrests, persons, organization, vehicles, and property.

Federal & State Reporting

National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS)

NIBRS is a system for collecting crime data from across the nation through the FBI’s UCR Program. Its purpose is to provide statistics about crime so law enforcement agencies, communities, citizens, researchers, and public leaders can make well-informed decisions about how to deal with crime.
Our RMS is NIBRS ready and has the following features:

    • Case readiness check. Officers or administrators can press a single button to check if an incident case’s data meets the requirements for it to be submitted to NIBRS.
    • File creation*. Allows administrators to create a NIBRS submission file in xml or flat file format for submission to the FBI.

*The xml and flat files generated are written to the current FBI NIBRS standard.

State Incident-Based Reporting Systems (IBRS)

Many U.S. States have their own IBRS program which require their resident law enforcement agencies to send NIBRS related information to the state first who will then in-turn report it to the FBI. Our RMS can be customized to meet specific state requirements as needed by our clients. Currently we support the following state specific programs:

    • Georgia
    • Mississippi
    • Tennessee (TIBRS)

Clery Act Reporting

The Clery Act is a consumer protection law that aims to provide transparency around campus crime and statistics. To comply with Clery Act requirements, colleges and universities must report crime statistics in their annual security report. Our RMS has Clery reporting, allowing departments to map offense codes to their respective Clery codes to generate the necessary reports to provide the required information to employee and students.

Summary Reporting System (SRS)

Our RMS has support for generating the legacy FBI UCR programs, Summary Reporting System, that may still be in use by law enforcement agencies prior to the NIBRS January 01, 2021 deadline. Administrators can manage their agencies incident cases and create the necessary reports for SRS reporting to the FBI.
