ARMS offers both UCR and NIBRS reporting. With certification in many states as a preferred NIBRS vendor, we continue to expand our NIBRS program as more agencies begin moving to NIBRS. Our dedicated compliance team monitors any changes in reporting requirements and adjusts the software in a timely manner, ensuring your agency is in compliance with the most current standards. Additionally, for our Higher Education customers we provide Automated Clery Reporting. From your daily logs to your SRTK and Fire Statistics, ARMS will automatically count and gather required information from all your Clery reportable incidents.
The CLERY reporting features of ARMS help ensure the agency is compliant with the classification/scoring of offenses, when and where they occurred, and the timely disclosure of new and updated crime details. The ARMS system provides the agency with effective methods to track and report statistics for the annual security report, including recent amendments for Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and Sexual Violence Elimination Act (SaVE). Audit reports in the ARMS system assist the agency with reviewing any CLERY-reportable offense or Title IX-related case report.
The agency can track the location of offenses based on Site, Beat, Street, and Common Name.
Report Center allows Records personnel to view and audit the annual CLERY reports, including those for Hate Crimes and those for Liquor, Drug, or Weapon Violations.
The ARMS system provides the data collection and reporting tools necessary to ensure a quick and easy report writing experience for Patrol Officers and an easy to follow data submission workflow for Records personnel to gather NIBRS submissions from the system to upload to the state/FBI. Using the ARMS system, transitioning the agency from UCR to NIBRS does not equate to transitioning Patrol Officers to stationary objects behind a keyboard for hours of the day. The intricate rules for NIBRS data submissions are well-managed by the ARMS system in such a way as to not burden the Officer with lengthy time at a laptop/workstation attempting to file a report. ARMS guides the Officer through a workflow designed around quick reporting and returning to the field. The system takes on the complexities of NIBRS on behalf of the user, rather than putting that responsibility on the shoulders of the user. A thorough review of NIBRS-reportable case data is but a mouse-click away, yet the system does not restrict the Officer from entering case data that is also needed for prosecution purposes which might extend beyond the scope of NIBRS. Using the NIBRS Review feature, the agency Records personnel can view and manage the distinct elements for NIBRS submission from the case report to ensure all meets NIBRS requirements, while allowing the Officer to maintain the report data required for prosecution.
ARMS NIBRS Review compiles the data for Records personnel to see the NIBRS-reportable data elements together in an easy to understand review process before the case data is submitted to the state/FBI.
Report Center allows Records personnel to audit the cases from the month to ensure each case report has been reviewed before monthly NIBRS submission.
