Force Accountability Transparency Software (FACTS), is a web-based software solution that allows officers to document use of force incidents immediately and generate reports while still in the field. Developed out of necessity in today’s rapidly changing law enforcement climate, FACTS was designed to adapt to an agency’s use of force reporting requirements and provide law enforcement with an invaluable tool to facilitate vital documentation processes easily and more efficiently.
Agencies are not required to adjust or change their reporting procedures to conform to the software, instead, this highly adaptable application is customized to suit each agency’s procedures, policies, terminology and use of force continuum, etc. Administrators can easily modify the application as reporting procedures change and because LEFTA Systems’ software continues to grow with an agency, the need for future software purchases is eliminated.
Made for Cops by Cops, FACTS is highly user and in-the-field friendly and a critical component of the SHIELD Suite. FACTS software not only helps to substantially mitigate liability for officers in the field and their agency, but can also be an effective tool in bridging law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve. Numerous reports and hundreds of statistics are immediately available to management as soon as an officer enters incident information. Utilizing this statistical data, management can easily review how officers are applying force. What type of resistance did the officer encounter? What type of force was used? Was the subject or the officer injured and how serious was the injury? What was the racial correlation between the subject and the officer? Which types of calls involve the highest rate of use of force incidents? What percentage of subjects involved in use of force incidents have mental health issues? Is one officer using force more often than other officers? When and where do most incidents occur and are certain types of response being overused (i.e. Taser©, pepper spray, impact weapons, take down techniques, etc.)?
When used collectively, the SHIELD Suite enables a fully integrated early warning system that alerts agency management to potential liability issues before they escalate (i.e. Internal Affairs, Use of Force, Field Training, Field Investigation Reporting, Profiling, Immigration Investigations, Vehicle Pursuits, Employee Training Records Management, Employee Complaint and Employee Traffic Crash Reporting). Additionally, the data collected can assist department heads with implementing modifications to officer training procedures, making updates to agency use of force policies and allocating resources such as manpower. Information can also be easily disseminated to an agency’s use of force management team, the media, state and federal regulators or placed on the agency’s website for community transparency.
All SHIELD applications can be used independently or can be combined to create a fully integrated system. Made for Cops by Cops, all applications are highly user and in-the-field friendly. SHIELD software applications not only mitigate liability for officers in the field and their agency, but can also be effective tools in bridging law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve. Numerous reports and hundreds of statistics are readily available and easy to access. When used collectively, the SHIELD Suite enables a fully integrated early warning system that alerts agency management to potential liability issues before they escalate.

I just wanted to let you and your team know how happy I am with METR and your company. I noticed that one of my suggestions was incorporated into the recent upgrade which I am very happy to see.

When we purchased the LEFTA Program, it had not become the suite it is now. Since acquiring the program, we have also purchased METR, VIPR and FACTS as well. These programs are very customizable and user friendly. Our agency is already looking at other modules to add to what we currently have.
