Navigating the ever changing landscape of State and Federal Policy Compliance is easier with EFORCE®.
Your Partners in Maintaining Compliance
We’ve seen serious changes to Policing over the past few years. New reporting standards, mandated reporting submissions, and other compliance changes are reshaping the landscape of the police reporting industry. Now more than ever, an important part of vendor selection is ensuring that your agency will comply with State and Federal requirements using their system.
EFORCE® Software goes to great lengths to ensure that you have all the tools you need to stay current and compliant with these reporting mandates and changes. What’s more is that we dedicate significant resources to maintaining our own compliance with these requirements.
Our flexible software and business model allow us to pivot and quickly respond to these changes. No matter where the future takes Policing, EFORCE® will be there for you.
COMMON COMPLIANCE STANDARDS
FBI CJIS Security Policy
Data Security and CJIS Compliance are daunting topics. That’s why you need a trusted partner in accomplishing your agency’s security requirements, and passing your compliance audits.
We’ve worked hundreds of agencies through their compliance efforts. We have the experience and knowledge to ensure you’re passing your audits, and more importantly, protecting the data in your system. We’ve gone to great lengths to ensure our software uses the latest in encryption and other security standards required by the FBI CJIS Security Policy, and your state’s policies.
Whether you’re using your own server, Government Cloud Space, or our hosting center, helping you store the data in your care in a compliant way is our top priority!
Submission to the National Incident Based Reporting System is an important part of modern policing. State and Federal policy makers, news and other media outlets, and your community stakeholders are using the data from this program to inform them on the state of policing in America and your community. Submitting compliant reports is an important part of your agency’s ability to ensure the truth about policing is reflected in their eyes.
Every state has adopted the NIBRS reporting standards and we’ve helped dozens of agencies secure grant funding for an upgrade to our system. Working with EFORCE® allows your agency to comply with these requirements without having to significantly alter your agency’s day to day operations, invest in retraining your staff, or hire additional personnel.
Bias and Integrity Reporting Mandates
This is a newer trend that we think is going to be around for some time. With legislation like the Sandra Bland Act in Texas, and Senate Bill 20-217 in Colorado becoming more and more commonplace, your agency needs a tool that can help you gather the required information quickly and efficiently.
But we also put the power of that data to work for you and your administration. We’ve built robust reports to show you and your community stake holders the real story of biased policing, as well as to comply with your State’s Mandates.
And the silver lining to reporting on each contact, is a real boost to the data your detectives have available to see who was contacted, when and where.
Jail Standards and Reporting
Maintaining a compliant jail is critical to keeping the doors open. EFORCE Jail has a number of state mandated fields, to ensure you record and report the information the State requires.
Other Mandates and Requirements
We also comply with a number of other individual State mandates. Contact us to talk about how we comply with your State’s compliance requirements, and other standards.
Is EFORCE® a Cloud Vendor?
Yes. EFORCE® provides SaaS solutions for Law Enforcement.
Unlike other cloud vendors, EFORCE® has several hosting options to best suit your agency’s needs. During the sales process, we’ll work with you to determine the best choice for where to install your software to help your agency with your State’s specific CJIS Security Policy Requirements.
Is EFORCE® CJIS Compliant?
Yes. EFORCE® Software complies with the CJIS Security Policy requirements, as evidenced by the hundreds of audits we have passed in every state where we have customers, in a variety of configurations.
However, meeting CJIS compliance with our software is a partnership with your agency, as software is only one piece of the compliance equation.
Is EFORCE® NIBRS Certified?
Yes. We have customers in each state where we do business that are certified by their State for direct, electronic submissions.
When you purchase EFORCE® RMS, you are purchasing a system purpose-built to help your agency comply with NIBRS. We are committed to working through the certification process with your agency and the State.
How does NIBRS work on EFORCE®?
EFORCE® RMS is built from the ground up to help your agency create NIBRS Compliant reports, using “point of entry” validation.
Your Officers classify the report they’re doing, using terminology they’re familiar with, and we set required fields and narrow down their choices in those fields based on what they selected. All they do is fill in the blanks, and their report will comply with NIBRS. This makes for reports that are compliant from the very beginning, and cuts out the needless back and forth between records and patrol.
Does EFORCE® comply with the Sandra Bland Act?
Yes. Data collection and reporting are both built in and simple to use.
In fact, our solution has been reviewed and approved as a compliant solution by Dr. Alex Del Carmen, Director of the Institute for Predictive Analytics in Criminal Justice. Dr. Del Carmen created the Texas Racial Profiling statistical template widely used across the State to comply with the act, which is at the core of our software tools.
Does EFORCE® comply with CO SB 20-217?
Yes. We’ve painstakingly designed and built our Officer Actions tools to simplify the collection and reporting process.
This is live in CO, and dozens of agencies are collecting their information this way. However, we’re still waiting on the State to finalize their side of the electronic data submissions before we complete the project.
What about future requirements?
While it’s difficult to know exactly what will come in the future, EFORCE® is committed to our customer’s compliance standings. Our company is uniquely positioned to quickly act on new legislation and other requirements as they are enacted. This allows us to lead the industry in rolling out polished compliance tools in our software to our customers much faster than our competition.
