The RIMS Person record is the repository of everything related to a subject.  The addition of information is a 100% automated process as persons are added to records.  RIMS compiles all records and contact information into one location. All RIMS applications have access to the same record.  Once added/updated/modified, the changes are instantly available.  A complete audit trail captures all changes, so no old information is lost.  The following applications have access to the person records.

The Person File contains 16 screen pages of personal information and more than 150 data elements, including:

  • Biographical Information
  • Employment Information
  • Emergency Contacts
  • Scars, Marks, and Tattoo photos, including Descriptions for Searchability.
  • Mug-Shot Photos
  • Miscellaneous and Investigative Notes
  • Officer Safety Information, Including Over 20 Warning and Alert Flags
  • Historical Contacts

Each person can have an unlimited number of aliases. With RIMS, aliases can include:

  • Names or Monikers
  • Dates of Birth
  • Social Security Numbers
  • Addresses
  • Source Information 

As case reports, field interviews, and other person contacts are entered, RIMS automatically builds a file of Associated Persons and Associated Vehicles. These records include the date, connection type, nature of connection, and other information.

This means when you look up someone in RIMS, you can simply click on the Associated Persons or Vehicles tab to see a list of all the persons they’ve previously been associated with—an invaluable investigative tool!

Additional Person Record features include:

  • Associated Locations
  • Associated Property (Evidence/Lost/Stolen/Seized/etc.)
  • Photo Line-up
  • Record Attachments
  • Social Media 
  • Crypto Currency Accounts
