This self-paced online accessible course takes the student through an immersive learning experience beyond the live seminar version and can be completed by anyone in your department.  Duration: about 1.5 hours.

We see many departments keeping closed cases forever, over- and under-reporting crime data, and misreporting their clearance rates, all due to issues in the world of case management. From too many status options in the RMS to gaps in case management procedure, learn the procedures needed to maintain the proper status and disposition of cases throughout the course of an investigation and the judicial process.


Learn how status and disposition fields in RMS function, how they impact NIBRS, clearance rates, records retention, and who should be authorized to change case statuses.

Includes: downloadable case management guide, and a status and disposition list for RMS.
