TRACS HAS BEEN OPERATIONAL IN THE NEBRASKA STATE PATROL CARRIER ENFORCEMENT DIVISION SINCE APRIL OF 2005 AND IN 18 TRAFFIC UNITS SINCE JANUARY 2006. SINCE JANUARY 2007, TRACS HAS ALSO BEEN UTILIZED IN ONE UNIT BY THE NSP CAPITOL SECURITY DIVISION TO ISSUE PARKING TICKETS. CURRENTLY ALL TRAFFIC UNITS IN THE STATE PATROL ARE USING TRACS FOR TRAFFIC CITATIONS, WARNINGS, USE OF FORCE, PURSUIT CRITIQUE, NON-ENFORCMENT CONTACT, AND DRIVER EXCHANGE. CITATIONS AND WARNINGS ARE TRANSMITTED TO A STATEWIDE COURT SYSTEM.
TraCS has been implemented in a few local agencies in Nebraska which included agency training and adaptation of the application to fit their environments. NSP is continuing to work with these agencies to electronically transmit their citations to NSP using web services and then on to be automatically filed with the statewide court system. NSP is also assisting the local agencies to export their TraCS data so that it can be imported by their local records management systems.
Additional forms being developed include a crash form, field interview card, license revocation, dui, wrecker release, animal destruction, warrant clearance, DMV re-exam, and incident report.
