The Comprehensive Police Reporting System (CoPRS) is a powerful new database and toolset that improves field efficiencies and helps solve crimes. Developed by the Southern Georgia Regional Commission (SGRC) for the Valdosta Police Department (VPD), it is a custom application that manages relationships between various elements of reports, such as witnesses and locations, with a new set of query tools and in-car interfaces. SGRC originally served as a technical advisor to VPD to identify needs and evaluate off-the-shelf applications, but led the creation of a custom program and acted as technical support as necessary modifications to the application were identified. SGRC continues to maintain the CoPRS servers and database, which reduce software costs and allow VPD to quickly retrieve comprehensive and relevant information.
