• In-car coding of calls frees up airtime for LRPD communications teams.

• Crime hotspots can be identified quicker.

• Affords officers the ability to use smartphones and handheld devices to take photos at the crime scene and check for warrants.

• Real-time information about a crime can be made available to the public online.

• Reports can’t be misplaced during transportation to the records division.

• Web-based forms are easier to read than handwritten forms.

Since updating the incident database, LRIT has developed automated crime-analysis tools available to all members of LRPD, and are expected to significantly improve the department’s ability to analyze crime and otherwise effectively deploy its resources.

“These cooperative efforts have astronomically improved the incident-reporting process at LRPD,” Stodola said.
