LERMS (Law Enforcement Records Management System)
The Law Enforcement Records Management System (LERMS) is a web based application that is available to all law enforcement agencies. It is not mandatory but rather an option for law enforcement if they are looking for a cost effective way to automate their records management system. LERMS saves time and effort by automatically including UCR and IBR codes within the case report. This saves time and effort when the agencies send their UCR/IBR reports to the State repository which is then sent to the FBI. In addition LERMS allows agencies to electronically save case information that can be easily searched and shared. The current cost to use this system is $25 per full time sworn officer per month. The LERMS monthly billing rate is based upon the number of full time sworn officers reported to the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation - UCR Division in the fall of each year and is effective for one year from the fall report. This monthly charge pays for training, configuration, ongoing support, and software upgrades necessary for the LERMS system.
