Speeding Up Police Reports In Greenville

If you want to know about crime in your city, anyone can walk into their local police department and look at the crime reports from the night before, but new record management system in one city is preventing that from happening.

There are a few kinks in the city of Greenville's record management system that was implemented six weeks ago.

The purpose is to provide paperless reports with an all electronic system.

Officers can type in reports instead of coming back to the office.

Then those reports would be available online to the public.

The problem is those daily reports were no longer readily available and taking days before being released.

For the time being, the police department is going back to the old system of printing paper reports, until the system is accessible online, which we're told, could take up to six weeks.

    I think the media is who this really affects, the rest of us on a daily basis don't go to the police department to try and get reports.

    Maybe if people would drive the speed limit instead of 15 under you would see traffic actually flow. GPD should concentrate on shootings.

    This is simply the police departments way of delaying reports so the reports can be altered. Who do they think they are fooling? Past history with this department has shown this to be true. It won't change.

    I live in Greenville and can attest to Ted's comment. Anytime we have to get out it makes me nervous. Some people here seem to care more about making it to their destination 5 seconds faster than driver's courtesy for other drivers on the road and the safety of other drivers. I miss my hometown where the cops enjoy ticketing and punishing jerks like this, heck let alone they even get a license since it's considered a privilege there, not a right.

    I told someone just the other day that it's sad that I work in a prison yet the most dangerous part of my day is the drive home. People in Greenville are idiots when it comes to driving. I was almost hit three times between the Hwy Patrol Station and Hastings Ford a few weeks ago. People are just crazy lol.
