Detailed Walk Through of a Report
When creating a new report you will notice a few things prior to completing the first segment.
Stop ID: Unique identifier which is automatically generated with each report and submitted to the DOJ
Assignment: This offers a list of options provided directly by the DOJ. The default is “Patrol, traffic, Field operations”. Note: There is an “OTHER” field. When selected, this box becomes free text.
Years of Experience: This will automatically populate onto each report based on the Years of Experience that was initially entered into the Officer’s user profile. Note: On an Officer’s anniversary, they can simply update their Years of Experience on their report and this will update their profile for all future reports. This can only be done on a Desktop.
Segment 1: Location & Time
Segment 2: Description of the Stop
Segment 3: Reason for the Stop
Segment 4: Actions Taken

Submitting your Report for Review
Once you have successfully completed each segment of your stop report, you can review your report and simply click Submit.
