The city of Thornton police department uses Intelliview inventory and asset management by Silent Partner Technologies to keep track of gear that has been issued out to officers on a daily basis.
A checkout station is utilized to automate the checkout process of gear issuance. In the morning the officer grabs the gear, presents it to the reader, the gear is registered on a checkout list, the officer verifies the items and signs for them digitally. When they return from their shift in the evening the items are presented to the reader and they are automatically checked back in. if items are not present, they remain checked out until returned. Once a week a commanding officer verifies all check-in/outs for the week and reconciles all discrepancies.
