USA Software Adds dtSearch Web to Police Records Management System (RMS)

The result is convenient browser-based search access for law enforcement across the full text of police records

“dtSearch Web was an already-proven solution. Adding dtSearch Web to our USA Mobile Dashboard was a quick and easy solution for the police department and their Criminal Investigations Division.”

USA Software and dtSearch together announce the addition of dtSearch Web to USA Software's custom police records management system (RMS). USA Software provides software solutions for law enforcement agencies to manage information and improve communications. dtSearch offers enterprise and developer text retrieval, including its own built-in document filters, to instantly search terabytes of online and offline data.

PaperWiseUSA Software solutions include Computer Aided Dispatch, Records and Case Management, Field Reporting and more. Recently, one of their police departments in Florida asked USA Software to develop software that would enable them to search not only their XML-based Field Reports, but other documents as well.

To implement this enhanced search, USA Software added dtSearch Web to their browser-based USA Mobile Dashboard app. dtSearch Web made the XML-based police reports and other documents that the police department maintained such as PDF and MS Office documents immediately full-text searchable. dtSearch Web's browser-based design was a perfect fit for USA Mobile Dashboard and provided for convenient access across the police department.

"dtSearch Web was an already-proven solution," said USA Software founder and president F.A. "Woody" Spencer. "Adding dtSearch Web to our USA Mobile Dashboard was a quick and easy solution for the police department and their Criminal Investigations Division. A sample search on an address retrieved a phone number for follow-up. A further search on the phone number immediately led to a report narrative that included other important details. Some of these details were then also searched and led to other report narratives that helped paint a more complete picture of the situation at the address."

dtSearch Web and the associated dtSearch Engine SDK instantly search terabytes of mixed documents, emails plus nested attachments, databases and online data with over 25 different search options. Both products include dtSearch's own document filters for data parsing, extraction, conversion and display with highlighted hits. For developers, the dtSearch Engine SDK offers these capabilities across a variety of programming languages and operating systems, both for "on premises" applications as well as for cloud-based usage.
