[eGuide]: The Ultimate eCitation Checklist

This free resource provides readers with a useful checklist and overview of the different types of patrol vehicle equipment needed to complete ecitations. In addition, this guide includes suggestions on reliable law enforcement manufacturers for each product type.  

What is electronic ticketing & what equipment will you need?

eCitation, also known as electronic ticketing, is the process of electronically completing a traffic citation. At a roadside stop, motor vehicle collision, or other incident, the Officer on-scene begins the citation process in the patrol vehicle by scanning the barcodes on the motorist’s driver’s license and vehicle registration. 

While a motorist is waiting for their citation, an officer is utilizing many key pieces of equipment inside their patrol vehicle. Using eCitation hardware and software (run on a wireless network connection), the license and registration data auto-populates into a ticketing template. Then, a report is electronically sent to headquarters. After that, a copy of the citation paperwork can also be printed from within the patrol vehicle.  

Electronic citations prevent manual errors and save time and resources. This results in safer, more efficient roadside stops.   

What is covered in this guide?

eCitation can assist you in serving and protecting your community safely and efficiently, while also helping you perform your administrative duties quickly, effectively, and safely.
