The Criminal Research, Information Management and Evaluation System (CRIMES) is a state-of-the-art information management tool for law enforcement agencies to aid in the daily operations of departments as well as the development of long-term strategies. The broad-ranging services are specifically designed for the criminal justice field and integrate emerging technologies and police strategies to fight crime and serve the public.
The system is also designed to allow regional networks to share law enforcement information across jurisdictions to better identify crime patterns in the area. Through CRIMES, agencies may have access to offense reports, traffic citation and accident data, and gang and drug criminal intelligence records. Key features of CRIMES include:
- Core modules that provide computer-assisted dispatch (CAD) for police, mobile components, fire and emergency medical services; incident management; booking and jail management; traffic citations, traffic crash reports, and property room management.
- Support components to manage field interviews, case investigation, NIBRS, racial profiling reports, citizen incident reports, and server backup and regional databases.
- Analytic components to evaluate operations, Compstat and crime analysis, geographic information interfaces, and fire operational reports.
- Management tools that manage alarm permits, personnel/equipment records, motor pool and vehicle maintenance records, and budget maintenance
