P O L I C E M AG .C O M 39 Brazos even offers audio recording ca- pability, which officers can use in the field to collect details about the inci- dent. With Brazos, signatures from viola- tors are obtained on the scene. e vi- olator receives the ticket and the data is stored, so it can then be shared with records and courts applications. e records of the citation are then transferred via Wi-Fi, cellular connec- tivity, or batch upload for processing into an agency' s predefined record or court system. With secure data-sharing processes, vital information is instant- ly accessible by dispatch, records, and court personnel. Because of these capabilities, Brazos has been credited with completing a traffic stop in as little as 90 seconds— from start to finish. CASE STUDY An agency's electronic citation solution should improve the ticketing process, keep officers safe, and get motorists back on the road as quickly as possible. Brazos users say that's exactly what it does for them. When a California agency wanted to take their ticketing processes to the next level, they turned to Brazos to stream- line the ticket process and become more efficient. e agency's process was improved through the reduction of redundant data entry, by the ability to quickly and easily transfer information from the police department to records and court applications, and through reduced errors generated through illeg- ible penmanship. By implementing Brazos, this agen- cy was able to leverage technology to reduce the number of citations rejected by the courts and improve the efficien- cy of the overall ticketing process. In the first 30 days of using Brazos, this agency wrote more than 850 citations with just 10 motor officers in the field. Within the first six months of going live on the solu- tion, this agency processed more than 8,300 citations. www.tylertech.com/products/brazos Dana Rasmussen is the senior content specialist for Tyler Technologies' public safety division.
