Agency Traffic Records Projects
Kansas Law Enforcement Records System (KLER)
The Kansas Highway Patrol (KHP) is in the process of developing a new offline data capture system to replace the current AFRS and EADCR applications. KLER will provide KHP and local law enforcement with the ability to electronically capture critical records data using existing mobile laptop computers in patrol cars.
KLER is a common law enforcement field-based reporting system that will incorporate over 15 reports used during traffic and accident stops, including crash forms from KDOT, incident forms from KBI, insurance forms from KDOR, and eventually a new statewide uniform traffic e-citation. All the forms will be in one software package for the officer on the street.
Kansas Accident Records System (KARS) and New Crash Form
The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) has redefined the state crash reporting form and is in the process of upgrading the state crash repository to support the new and changed data elements. The project includes replacing the existing data entry system for manual record submission and the development of new business processes to support the electronic submission of information using the new XML schema definitions.
Kansas Emergency Medical Information System (KEMIS)
The Kansas Board of Emergency Medical Services (KBEMS) has recently contracted with ImageTrend, Inc. to provide offline and online applications and the state central repository for the capture and reporting of EMS data. ImageTrend is the leader nationally in providing these systems and will be providing the EMS StateBridge, EMS ServiceBridge and EMS FieldBridge products.
Kansas Incident Based Reporting System (KIBRS)
The Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) is developing a plan and a design for the replacement of the current state incident based reporting system. The new system will include a common records management system that is web based and shared by multiple local law enforcement agencies. The new system will provide for electronic data submission using KLER and vendor products and will support advanced reporting and analysis tools.
DMV Modernization Project
The Kansas Department of Revenue (KDOR) has initiated a major program to replace both the state's vehicle and driver licensing systems. Included within the scope of this program is the development of new capabilities to support the Traffic Records System and law enforcement community.
The Kansas Criminal Justice Information System (KCJIS) is initiating a project to support the electronic capture and submission of law enforcement citations via the TRS. The project is currently starting the planning phase.
