Automated A-Form Solution

Miami-Dade County is the largest county in the State of Florida employing approximately 30,000 workers who provide services to over 2.4 million residents.  The Miami-Dade Law Enforcement community, represented by County, State and Municipal Police agencies, serves a large and diverse metropolitan area comprised of 36 municipalities, Miami-Dade County Police Department, Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department, Juveniles Services Department and several State of Florida law enforcement agencies processing over 220,000 arrests from affidavits yearly.  The approximate incarceration rate for these arrest affidavits is 114,000 individuals annually booked into Miami-Dade County corrections facilities. 

Miami-Dade County currently utilizes a paper Arrest Form (A-Form) for the processing of arrest information.  The current paper-based arrest process results in operational deficiencies among all Miami-Dade criminal justice entities.  Most importantly, it delays the officer’s stay at the corrections facility reducing their availability to protect the community.   

The Miami-Dade County Association of Chiefs of Police (MDCACP) is the sponsor of a project funded by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) to automate the A-Form for all County law enforcement.  Miami-Dade County acquired an enterprise Automated A-Form Solution that automates the current manual A-Form, making arrest information available at the corrections facilities by the time the officer arrives with the arrestee, expediting the booking process, incorporating workflows, and facilitating data sharing and reporting. 

The implementation of this Solution will be done in a phased approach scheduled to be completed by February 2013, which is when the funding for this project expires.
