Law Enforcement and Security: Police Incident Report Forms, Investigation Management Forms, Case Management Solutions

What are the benefits of Investigative Case Management or Incident Management software solutions?

Case management or incident management software solutions store and organize digital information gathered during an investigation within a central location where it can be shared and leveraged by multiple authorized users. Because the information is stored digitally, it can easily be searched and analyzed to uncover matches or patterns that might not otherwise be clearly identified. Incident management solutions easily combine processes, people and technology in order to facilitate investigations.

Incident and case management systems can record and provide all the following data:

  • Incident details and narratives, including photos and video
  • Contact information
  • Investigative activities
  • Evidential documents
  • Case notes
  • Client communications
  • Reports
