WHICH RECORD MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS ARE LIBRS
Agencies should be aware that NIBRS and LIBRS
are very different data specifications and buying a NIBRS compliant RMS does not
necessarily mean that the agency will be able to submit LIBRS data. Data sets created
by the RMS must meet the LIBRS 2.0 specifications. No RMS
has been certified as 100% LIBRS compliant.
To this date, most agencies that have been certified to submit LIBRS data are using
RMS packages created by New World, HTE, or
LEMIS software from the La. Commission on Law Enforcement. No agencies
have been successfully certified using ADSI or Crimestar. Jefferson Davis
