Best Application Serving an Agency's Business Needs Electronic DD5 – Investigative Case Management System, New York City Police Department (NYPD)
Before implementing the Electronic DD5 – Investigative Case Management System, the NYPD Detective Bureau's 3,500 detectives and supervisors relied upon typewriters and carbon paper to assign, create, update, review, and dispose of approximately 200,000 criminal investigations per year. After each investigation conducted, the bureau used typewriters to draft the necessary reports, and managed this caseload in paper file folders, cataloged on paper index sheets, physically maintained within the premises of each respective unit.
With thousands of registered users now on the Electronic DD5, over 3,000 DD5s are written and entered into the case management system each day, along with 7,000 new or updated reports sent to the Real-Time Crime Center. Similarly, the bureau searches through and views over 20,000 cases daily, utilizing the Electronic DD5's centralized search engine, which indexes DD5s in real-time and provides Google-type searching and alerts increased efficiency and cost savings.
