Online system will help improve officer’s reporting efficiency

CLEVELAND – Mayor Frank G. Jackson today released a statement on the new Cleveland Division of Police field-based reporting system. The new system, announced today, allows officers to complete reports on-scene and in their vehicles. Implementation began in early September and is scheduled for completion by early 2018. The city has thus far trained 120 officers.

“We have been working since 2016 to develop an efficient field reporting system for the Division of Police. This new system is just one part of the reform process I promised the citizens of Cleveland. We are committed to improving every aspect of how our police officers serve residents, and through the help of the Consent Decree and the additional resources provided by Issue 32, we will achieve our goals.”
