Accomplishments The Flagstaff Police Department utilizes Intergraph Public Safety’s Records Management System, known as I/Leads. I/Leads-RMS stores and retrieves information on incidents, arrests, warrants, property, case management, field interviews, and many other types of information required to manage a public safety agency. This system possesses enhancements which include support for 64 bit servers which helps make the application run faster and be more efficient, the ability to associate property and evidence to an accident record, the ability for calls for service records to be attached to multiple incidents and accidents, and expanded abilities to transfer data from one module to another, such as from accidents to citations, from arrests to citations and from citations to arrests. Additionally, officers in the field are able to use Intergraph’s Field Reporting program that allows them to access Intergraph’s Records Management software, report incidents, and accidents, and transfer queries and responses using wireless technology. This promotes more efficient use of time by enabling officers to complete reporting tasks in the field instead of at the station. Hours of service for Records were changed on the weekends to bring the section more into line with operating schedules of other departments around the state. The section is now open Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and closed to the public Page 83
