A Subject Packet is a virtual index card that is created by a user and instantly accessible by other LENSS users everywhere. If a subject packet is searched and there is a hit, the creating officer is sent a notification within 3 - 9 seconds with contact information of the officer that ran the query.
Value: Information that was once siloed in the records of one agency is now automatically and immediately shared with other agencies with no jurisdictional boundaries. LENSS makes sharing Intel simple, fast, and affordable.
The Backup Notification automatically sends a request for backup to other officers on the shift when a querying officer gets a positive hit in LENSS. This allows the officer who is engaged with a suspect to keep his full attention on the potentially dangerous individual with the confidence that help is on its way. The Backup Notification can also be programmed to notify specific departments for specific responses. For example, if you get a suspect drug transport vehicle hit in LENSS, a K-9 unit can be automatically dispatched to the scene.
