Background Check and Licensing Certification System for State Police
The system provides the Certification Unit with an application to facilitate the licensing, background investigation, and management of private investigators, watch guards, and special state police officers of a major US state. This replaced a legacy Lotus Notes and paper-based system.
The application has standard components for Workflow Management , Document Management, Inter agency interface, Search options, Report definition, User portal etc.. It establishes a complete system for processing firearms licenses and registrations. Not only does it provide a standardized, streamlined and central source for managing all firearms licensing and registration information but it also consolidates disparate licensing and registration processes and data.
The system supports a user base of 500+ and issues over 40,000+ licenses per year, and incrementally replaced an out-dated legacy system.
The system has a positive impact on public safety by providing instant identification,tracking and management of firearms information,meeting legislative requirements and replaces a manual-intensive process.
