Police Property Management – Flexible, Modular and Proven with legacy system interfaces
KIM has supplied the evidential and seized Property management system to 16 UK Police Forces and has what is acknowledged to be the most comprehensive and flexible product available with 200 configurable options.
In addition to managing evidential property, the software may also be used for tape libraries and drug stores and the ability to make some stores ‘confidential’ makes the system attractive for use to Professional Standards, CID, Covert Teams etc where material is hidden from all users except theirs. This has often led to the ‘retirement’ of departmental systems with the associated savings for support of them and improved working practice with everyone adopting the same processes.
Wherever used, the system manages all aspects of property items from initial retention through to audited disposal. Features include bar coding for movement and audit, digital signature, photographic material, full continuity of actions including the use of seals, drugs management with automated Home Office returns, transit management and interfacing with other systems e.g. SOCRATES, Crime and Automated Web Lost Property reporting.
The application is supplied with rapid searching, crime cross referencing and a suite of management performance reporting including ad-hoc report building and user KPI.
