WPD to get new records management system

The City Council has approved the purchase of a new records management system for the Wichita Police Department.

WPD's current system is called E-Justice, which was purchased in 2000.   In March of this year, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) performed an audit and found the system was not compliant with security standards and requirements.  The old system cannot integrate with other supporting software.

Vice-Mayor Bryan Frye says the consequences of not purchasing an up to date system for the department would have negative impacts for the city.

The new software will interface with the state, and also with any future purchase by Sedgwick County for its record managing.

The project is projected to cost 2.78 million dollars and forecast to be online by the third quarter of 2019.
