LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles has entered into a consent decree with the U.S. Department of Justice that requires the city to develop a Training, Evaluation and Management System (TEAMS II) for the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).

The design, development and implementation of the Risk Management Information System (RMIS) and Use of Force System (UOFS) are cornerstones of the TEAMS II Development Program effort.

The RMIS application from Sierra Systems Group will draw data from more than 12 LAPD operational systems and provide sophisticated tools for the analysis of resulting aggregated data. The system will identify potential at-risk behavior and promote best policing practices by triggering appropriate early intervention activities and notifications. The UOFS will use advanced workflow technology to replace the current paper process for tracking all occurrences of officer uses of force.
