Speed. Efficiency. Accuracy
CloudGavel simplifies and expedites the warrant approval and issuance process by allowing public safety officers to use any device with secure internet access to log on to our web application and generate a warrant. After the electronic warrant is automatically populated, it is then electronically sent to a judge for review and approval.
CloudGavel enables law enforcement officers to act quickly and to ensure the safety of those officers as well as the general public. Law enforcement officers are able to take action as soon as they have probable cause, thereby reducing the possibility that a suspect will be tipped off and flee. An electronic warrant can be created by an officer while in his/her squad car and sent electronically to a judge. If required, a secure video conferencing link between the officer and judge can be utilized. A judge is able to review the warrant and respond from anywhere, eliminating the need to physically be in an office. Once the warrant is approved and issued, the officers can print it from a portable printer in his/her vehicle.
CloudGavel saves countless hours, and even days, of lost time over the course of a year. By maximizing the efficient deployment of police resources, agencies reduce unplanned overtime used to process warrants and file paperwork. The total cost of CloudGavel’s electronic warrant platform can quickly be recouped by the savings generated over the current manual process. CloudGavel allows officer work hours to be used for the apprehension and conviction of criminals by reducing the time it currently takes to process paperwork.
