Fresh off the PoliceReports.US acquisition, LexisNexis is announcing the acquisition of Coplogic a provider of citizen self-reporting software solutions to law enforcement agencies. The acquisition – which includes Coplogic’s technology, staff and book of business – adds a citizen incident reporting capability to the LexisNexis eCrash solution. Agencies using the Coplogic solution have reported citizens filing up to 30 percent of all reports online, eliminating the need to dispatch officers for minor non-threatening incidents. Both acquisitions add capabilities to the company’s eCrash offering.
LexisNexis also acquires the company’s Law Enforcement Automated Personnel System (LEAPS) and Overtime Manager and Scheduling System (OTMS).
Coplogic is actively deployed in 450 law enforcement agencies across North America. Integration of the services will allow most of the crash reporting process to happen online.
LexisNexis also bought iyeTek in May – a software development company. LexisNexis used the iyeTek acquisition to expand eCrash’s market presence with mobile and online improvements.
eCrash is a free online crash reporting offering. eCrash automates the entire crash report process from initial data capture, to administration and through to report distribution, enabling law enforcement agencies to save time during an incident. The solution also uses the crash data to provide analytical breakdowns of local communities, so that law enforcement can plan around crash prone areas.
