Daily Log Description and Functionality
The Daily Log is designed to capture routine data, either
in real time, or after the fact. The majority of these entries
will not be significant enough to create a full Incident
Report, however they provide invaluable information on the
day to day routine activities of the officers. Many of the
fields are drop down lists that you have created based on
your own environment. These allow you to quickly retrieve
reports that detail number of events by Location, Officer,
Region, Activity, and Incident. In addition, the reports
will summarize the amount of time spent providing these
services, Response times, and number of calls per hour for
If the event to be entered will cause an Incident report
to be generated, the user has the option of creating the
report from this screen. During data entry, if the user
selects the Create Report checkbox (shown only when entering
data), then an Incident Report is created and the data from
the Daily Log screen is copied into the Incident Report.
The officer can then complete the report when all the information
is available, without having to do double entry.
Note that the screen is shown full size to enable you to
get a feel for the clean and simple approach to data entry.
