Top problems we solve
Create a single source of truth
The central repository, with its powerful search features and mobile accessibility, gives officers 24/7 access to mission-critical policies anytime, anywhere.
Track who has signed what
Electronic signature tracking, audit trails, dashboards, and reports all come together to make accountability within your agency a reality.
Grow public trust
Stay transparent and build a culture of trust by sharing critical policy information with the community. With automated version control, be confident that every public policy is up to date.
Stay informed with automatic updates
After updating a policy, every version of it is also automatically updated in the system, saving you the time and effort of tracking down and removing old versions. Automatic alerts, side-by-side comparisons, and electronic signatures help you track changes and keep your officers informed and accountable.
Reduce prep time by 50%
With less manual effort, assessment prep won’t monopolize your department’s resources, leaving more time for important police work.
Assess whether or not your organization is on track to meet the requirements of an accreditation onsite with task assignments, digital highlighting, progress tracking, and mock assessments.
Show your commitment to excellence
Build community trust by demonstrating your officers are held to a higher standard of excellence and accountability when you achieve agency accreditation.
Keep your standards simple
We publish standards manuals from almost every state and national law enforcement accrediting body. With standards mapping and digital highlights of important changes, self-assessment is simpler than ever.
Balance the national narrative
Get actual data on how your community feels about your department with automated surveys sent to citizens after CAD- and RMS-indicated interactions.
Keep citizens informed
Send automated communication directly to citizens via text. Send response delays, pre-arrival information, and case updates to build trust and show you care.
Build officers up
Positive feedback from citizens is sent directly to officers and can be displayed on department screens to boost morale and show officers that they are appreciated.
Attract more recruits
Become an employer of choice by demonstrating your commitment to officer morale and positive community relationships. Engage tech-savvy candidates with QR codes that automatically connect them to a chat with a recruiter.
Connect with someone who gets it
Users can anonymously match with peer volunteers outside their own department and join topic-specific group sessions to connect with other law enforcement professionals who get it because they’ve been there.
Combat stress with wellness resources
Reduce stress and prevent burnout in your department with access to a full library of wellness content, designed exclusively for law enforcement by law enforcement.
Provide confidential access to support
The app is completely anonymous, allowing officers to access mental health resources and support on their own terms before they are in crisis.
