Case Study #2: A Deputy Police Chief Reveals eCitation Tips to Decrease Ticketing Times & Increase Revenue
Presenter: Deputy Police Chief Jack Fahrnow - Olathe Police Department - KS
Serving more than 145,000 citizens in the suburb of Kansas City, KS, the Olathe police department has worked to be on the leading edge of integrating technology into its police force. With a police force comprised of 200 sworn police officers and 30 civilians, Olathe PD was seeking new ways to improve us of department resources, reduce ticketing errors and gather data for reporting on state mandates. Prior to 2016, the Olathe PD’s citation issuing and processing system was a very staff intensive process. It required many steps and staff to get 50,000 to 60,000 handwritten tickets into the records management system. This was the process that has been followed for many decades and required staffers who were fully dedicated to simply entering tickets. Beyond entry staff needs, paper ticketing used time in other ways. With a paper ticket, the average traffic stop lasted about 15 to 20 minutes. Olathe PD leadership was seeking an eCitation system that could get the traffic stop down to less than 5 minutes.
Learn how the Olathe PD’s new eCitation solution has directly reduced errors, cut down lost revenue, automated the ticket processing operation and shortened ticket writing to an average of 10 minutes. Join Deputy Police Chief Jack Fahrnow as he shares how his department made the transition to a new eCitation system.
