For law enforcement, a job well done is when you can say “Case Closed.” Naturally, no sheriff’s office or law enforcement agency wants their unfinished cases to outweigh the ones they’re able to put away in the vault, so to speak, but it’s an unfortunate reality.
That said, with outstanding cases, keeping track of who’s in charge as well as what progress is being made can easily get lost within the shuffle of existing processes and workflows.One person’s note can be another’s head scratch. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a trail of all the actions previous people took, so there’s no disconnect? There’s a lot to be said about picking up directly where someone else left off, and having a clear directive for your to-dos.
All this can be made possible with case management software.
Integration is no doubt a highly coveted organization tool businesses need to succeed. However, you also need to be able to isolate actions taken on your case separate from other tasks. Law enforcement case management software can accomplish this.
Not only that, but the proper software also provides an end-to-end solution. This includes:
- Permission-based access, so you can control who sees what data
- Flexibility and agility for your organization’s structure
- Building case data
- The potential for improved clearance rates
- Versatility to track your investigations 24/7
As a Case Manager or law enforcement official, you need your tools to work as hard as you do; it’s a no-brainer.
According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), about 48% of police departments employed fewer than 10 officers. With the digital age comes the expectation of increased efficiency and data management.
Accomplishing this may be challenging when you don’t have the manpower – but software can help.
Not being bound to your desk to upload evidence and track any notes on-the-go can increase your effectiveness in and out of the field.
