An Investigative Alert is a push notification to broadcast information including photos of the suspect to every officer in every agency in a selected region. Even off duty officers can get these alerts. Certain events like an “officer down” call, armed robbery or even a missing child require that every officer within a region be alerted. We created the Investigative Alert to get the word out fast.
A Subject Packet is a virtual index card that is created by a user and instantly accessible by other LENSS users everywhere. If a subject packet is searched and there is a hit, the creating officer is sent a notification within 3 - 9 seconds with contact information of the officer that ran the query.
Value: Information that was once siloed in the records of one agency is now automatically and immediately shared with other agencies with no jurisdictional boundaries. LENSS makes sharing Intel simple, fast, and affordable.
The SLEA (Source Law Enforcement Agent) is the officer who initiated a subject packet, investigative alert or field interview card in the LENSS system.
The QLEA (Querying Law Enforcement Agent) is the officer who has queried an address, drivers license, license plate, name or other identifier and received a positive "hit" through LENSS.
