CTCHIEF RMS Benefits and Features

CTCHIEF is a powerful and comprehensive browser-based records management system that organizes, stores, and transmits secure law enforcement and public safety information.  It can stand alone or interface with our Heartbeat CAD or any other CAD system.  It streamlines your reporting process by managing workflow getting incident reports written and approved.  Demographic information is entered just once, often in the CAD, and made available with a click when creating your report.  DMV data can also be used to verify a person's identity, or provide it to add to the master name index if not on file yet.  eCitations, MMUCC crash reports, and statutory traffic stop "racial profiling" reports are automatically submitted to the state with no user managment required.   CISS (Connecticut Information Sharing System) is fully integrated for automated and automatic early arrest reporting to the courts with no manual intervention.   Monthly NIBRS (or UCR in the short term) report generation is a breeze.  Fully automated, simply click a button to produce the output file, and email it to the state once a month.  Great property logging and tracking is included.  Booking and jail cell management is included.  This is virtually all you need to run your department smoothly and efficiently.

Telepartner Mobile ASSIST


Telepartner Mobile ASSIST™ Benefits and Features

Rich Regional Data Sharing Features

Our approach provides easy visual access on a mobile device, integrating the Dispatch state, AVL, Preplan, hydrant state, and other mapping layers of multiple agencies in one place.  Once integrated, you control who else, if anyone, gets to see your information.  There are often several other agencies with which you provide or receive Mutual Aid.  If these other agencies also participate with Telepartner Mobile Assist, then each can see each other’s calls, units/status, AVL, Preplan, and Hydrant information at the click of a button.  Whatever you can see, you can allow other agencies to see as well.  You control how your information is shared.

Real-time Dispatch information

Our users report that they often see the call details on their screen moments before the tones and details come over the radio.  Our real-time interface is flexible and can be made to work with third party Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) systems purely through reading the dispatch system’s database.  For read-only access, it often requires no changes to any of the CAD Vendor’s code.

Real-time Hydrants

We not only show you where your hydrants are on the map, we offer a component that lets you mark hydrants offline and back online again.  This can be integrated right into the application in the field, so your personnel can mark a hydrant out of service.  You can also make this feature available to your Water or Public Works agency.  When they bring a hydrant in service or out of service, this gets reflected immediately on the map in the field.


Telepartner has integrated with Firehouse Preplan to pull address specific preplan information from their database and display it at the click of a button in our application.  We can make this information available to any other agency that also uses our Mobile Assist™ technology.  Don’t use Firehouse for Preplan?  We can create an interface to your preplan data as well.

AVL – Vehicle locations on the map

Telepartner has expertise with GPS reporting modems, especially those from Sierra Wireless™ as well as the ability to receive GPS location data from tablets such as the Apple iPad™ and Android based devices.  Live location data can be seen on a map and in table format, and playback features are available as well.  


When responding to a call, especially for Mutual Aid in a town you may not be familiar with, a single click will get you routing/directions.  On the iPad, you will be directed to the Maps application and can receive turn by turn directions.  
Simplified Integration
Telepartner has perfected the art of interfacing with different Dispatch systems, Preplan databases, and AVL reporting devices.  If a Dispatch system keeps its state in a modern relational database (as all do) then Telepartner can simply query its state and take the appropriate action when it changes.
