The Rapid System will optimize your department's effectiveness and significantly reduce the costs to gather and monitor the transaction data.
RAPID SystemIn many police departments, the current reporting systems are antiquated, unmanageable, and largely unable to accommodate the growing influx of reported transactions. As a result the officers mandated to investigate this data are overwhelmed. Simultaneously, due to budget constraints and cuts, police agencies are burdened with managing this data set with already overextended resources, and as such are constantly searching for ways to be more efficient and effective.
RAPID directly addresses police officer’s need for improved accuracy, quantity, relevancy and timeliness of transaction information related to pawn, scrap metal and precious metal transactions. RAPID empowers law enforcement to expend significantly more effort on crime analysis as opposed to ‘wasted’ time spent on data entry and file management of hard copy pawn records.
BWI brings the convenience and scalability of modern web transaction technologies to capture, consolidate and investigate transactions in the pawn, second hand, precious metal and scrap metal business industries. By providing this information to law enforcement in an intuitive, consumable, and flexible format; it transforms this information into an invaluable source in the fight against the many crimes and social problems linked to property theft.
