INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - This summer, IMPD will add a new discipline reporting system. IAPRO is designed to help IMPD leaders keep track of complaints against officers.
The software is expected to launch sometime in the summer. Brass at IMPD will purchase the 60 thousand dollar system with a grant.
Once installed, administrators can keep track of each complaint filed against a officer. The program will also flag officers who have more than one complaint. Not only that, the program will help clear officers faster when it's determine accusations against them are fraudulent.
"We have numerous complaints where a officer did nothing wrong, they need to be clear in a quick time frame," said Public Safety Director Troy Riggs.
Currently IMPD uses a paper system. None of the complaints are in a computerized form.
According to police, investigations have not been jeopardizing by the old system. However, we are learning in one case it took the department 179 days to clear a wrongly accused officer of a petty complaint.
There is hope IAPRO will significantly decrease the delay. President of Fraternal Order of Police is in favor for the new system.
"It really is a necessary tool something we haven't done in the past," said William Owensby.
