Police Management Software

Law enforcement officers play a vital role in maintaining order and public safety amongst a wide variety of communities. City police departments are responsible not only for their officers, there’s collected evidence, vehicles, and equipment they use daily. Tracking this wide variety of items across the city, inside vehicles, and those associated with an officer can be an impossible task without the right solution in place. Because of this, police departments are turning to asset management software to help track their most important assets. Police Management software helps solve the common problems faced by law enforcement with a combination of intuitive software, powerful configuration, and the latest in IoT technologies.

Track Emergency Police Vehicles, and what’s inside

Apptricity’s I-Connect line of IoT devices ensures complete visibility into the location of the squad car fleet and all the various items inside. Attaching an I-Connect controller outfitted with a GPS sensor and RFID antennas allows for real-time-location-services (RTLS) on both vehicles and tagged assets. RFID tags can be attached to virtually anything, including commonly used items such as weapons, laptops, radios, and more. Furthermore, these assets can be associated with the vehicle in a parent/child relationship, ensuring that they never leave the vehicle. Should these assets need replacing, loadout profiles are generated ensuring that each vehicle is outfitted with the proper gear.

Police Property Room Management

Without the proper strategy, property rooms can quickly turn into black holes; places where important equipment goes missing. This causes over-purchasing to occur in order to ensure that stock levels meet thresholds to adequately serve the public. Outfitting an Apptricity I-Connect controller allows for automated cycle counts of any RFID or Bluetooth tagged items within the storehouse. Users who automate cycle counting experience on average a 40% reduction in time spent, as well as greater accuracy on what items are in the room.

Chain of Custody Made Simple

Important items such as case evidence and SWAT team equipment routinely get checked out by officers daily, at a precinct. These items require a strict history of who checked them out, how long they had them, and when they were checked back in. Apptricity property inventory software provides this functionality and more with Apptricity Checkpoint, a mobile inventory application that utilizes the on-board camera to scan barcodes and check items in and out of inventory. Android and iOS users use this app to scan a barcode, check the item out to a user, and, when finished, scan the item to check it back in. Apptricity Asset Management takes these scans and records how long each user was the custodian of the assets. This allows you to generate comprehensive reports with details such as checked out items, recently returned items, how long users kept items for, and much more.

Zonal Tracking

Knowing the exact location of assets within a building can be tricky, especially when managing many assets. With Apptricity Asset Management, users can utilize zonal tracking to define floor layouts within the software and associate assets with specific floors and rooms within a building. Maintaining this level of granularity saves time in both finding assets and audit activities.

Integration with Existing Software

Apptricity’s powerful integration engine allows for seamless data transfer between Asset Management and any other software system in near or real time. With the ability to integrate into any legacy software, Apptricity’s solutions can enhance the current workflow without replacing what’s comfortable.
