Police Information Reporting System (PIRS)

Keystone’s Police Information Reporting System (PIRS) is a comprehensive, integrated solution for the complex data collection, reporting and administrative requirements of local and county law enforcement agencies. The system provides complete record-keeping from complaint / incident inception to final disposition. PIRS may be used in conjunction with Keystone’s Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) or as a separate stand-alone application.

If used with CAD, all applicable incident information is automatically passed to the PIRS system as a by-product of normal dispatch procedures. Data is loaded into the main screen of PIRS where, based on security parameters, it can be added to, modified or deleted. A series of sub-screens capture information describing the disposition, offense, person(s), vehicle(s), property, narrative, modus operandi, solvability factors, NIBRS relationships and security involved with an incident.

PIRS also provides a full Arrest and Booking module which tracks everything from breathalyzer test results to suicide evaluations. With the ability to do on-line bookings, one PIRS customer reported that their booking process decreased from forty-five minutes to eight minutes using the Keystone On-line Public Safety KOPS software.

Data captured during the day-to-day functions of law enforcement agencies may be accessed in a variety of analytical modes using PIRS. Information can be analyzed against crime patterns, call for service statistics and staffing availability to optimize resources, enabling timely response to situations and investigations. These standard KOPS attributes assist public safety officials every day, saving valuable time and money.

NCIC / SCIC enables communication between CAD or RMS systems and State and National Crime Data Bases. All driver’s license, vehicle registration and warrant checks entered into the system are automatically transferred to the State Crime Information Center and the National Crime Information Center computers for processing. This prevents the dispatcher/user from having to enter this information into two separate computers. A response is sent back to the CAD or RMS system with any pertinent data.

Mug Shots

Mug Shots allows the user to capture, store, retrieve and display photo quality images in the PC environment. These images can in turn be linked to host application data records within the KOPS application.


The Fingerprinting Interface connects arrest and booking data to an automated fingerprinting system. The fingerprinting system requests arrest data from our RMS or JAILS Management Systems located on your host computer. Demographic, arrest and actual fingerprint data collected creates FBI approved fingerprint cards and has the capability to electronically transfer the fingerprint images directly to the FBI.

KeyData / Data Sharing

KeyData / Data Sharing is a process that enables data to be extracted from the KOPS database and supports input into SQL and Access databases for manipulation by users in a real-time environment.

KeyPic / Digital Pics

KeyPic / Digital Photos allows for digital images to be associated with specific records maintained in the database. Users can retrieve photos associated with a person, vehicle, incident, accident, property and business.

KeyDoc / Document Imaging

KeyDoc / Document Imaging provides for the association of scanned images / documents with specific records in the database for easier storage and retrieval.

Maryland Automated Booking System

Maryland Automated Booking System (ABS) This interface enables information to be entered into the ABS system. Upon being transmitted to the State and consequently returned to the forwarding agency, the interface handles the generation of the arrest record with the local database.
