What is Electronic ticketing, eCitation?
Commonly known as eCitation, electronic ticketing is a faster and more efficient way to generate reports and citations in the patrol vehicle. Capturing driver’s license (DL) information electronically by scanning the DL barcode, and or bar-codes from registrations or other forms, officers can complete their reports easily, quickly and error-free.
How eCITATION ASSISTS WITH OFFICER SAFETY
How Long does it take you to hand-write citations?
Hand writing citations is very time consuming and officers jeopardize their safety by spending too much time curbside using a manual process.
Handwritten citations can take 15 – 20 minutes or longer to complete; by using an electronic citation process the average time of stop, data run and ticket entry is between 4-5 minutes. Getting you off the curb quicker and back on patrol keeping your communities safe.
Moving to an error-free citation system, e-Citation speeds up the process and drastically reduces the number of illegible tickets.
