To provide advanced training to law enforcement personnel in police administration, Army Law Enforcement Reporting Tracking System (ALERTS), law enforcement report writing, the Live Scan Management System (LSMS), the Combined Deoxyribonucleic Acid Index System (CODIS), and informative briefings from agencies associated with law enforcement reporting.
Training will focus on effective report writing skills to improve the quality of cases entered into ALERTS, the advanced functions of user management and capabilities of ALERTS certifying users as system administrators, searching and pulling data from ALERTS for analytical purposes, and case management. Additionally, students will train on the new LSMS and CODIS systems, along with receiving detailed briefings from the Family Advocacy Program (FAP), Crimes Record Center (CRC), and the Judge Advocate General (JAG) on current trends, issues, and best practices utilized in the field.
The objectives of this course are:
- Certify basic level ALERTS users to become certified ALERTS system administrators.
- Train and certify law enforcement personnel on the Live Scan Management System.
- Train and certify law enforcement personnel on the CODIS collection kit.
- Inform law enforcement personnel on the trends, issues and best practices utilized by agencies that support the law enforcement mission.
- Improve law enforcement personnel on writing proper, concise, and informative police reports that will assist in the extraction of analytical data recorded into the ALERTS system.
The course will consist of five days taught monthly by trained and certified USAMPS instructors and guest instructors (where applicable) on advanced police administrator tasks. The course flow and projected schedule will consist of fifteen lessons that focus on fully processing cases in ALERTS from initiation to closing and finalizing the case, populating and maintaining instillations such as adding locations, narrative templates, mapping UCMJ offenses to state statue and other local laws, and many other auto-populating features commonly used in the ALERTS system. Further advanced training on extracting data utilizing Ad Hoc reports and standard reports will be provided.
The course will train law enforcement personnel on the new automated digital fingerprint capturing system known as Live Scan. Students will input biographical data into the system, capture fingerprint samples and transmit test records to the DAI which will provide feedback on the quality of samples submitted. Students will also receive training on the CODIS sample kit ensuring proper procedures are followed to decrease rejected sample records.
Guest instructors from JAG, FAP, and CRC will be available or accessible upon request to provide briefings on how their agencies provide assistance to law enforcement. If guest instructors are unavailable, USAMPS will facilitate the briefing. The briefings will consist of trends, issues, and best practices utilized in the field that aid in law enforcement reporting.
