Computer Aided Dispatch and Records Management Software
On January 1, UPD went live with RIMS computer aided dispatch and records management software (CAD/RMS). SJSU joined 13 other CSU campuses that have installed RIMS and there are future plans to link the CSU law enforcement databases together.
RIMS CAD assists the dispatchers by interfacing with other systems such as the Department of Justice, DMV and the 9-1-1 system. Data is automatically transferred into the system eliminating the redundant entering of information. When the system is fully integrated, UPD will also be able to directly access information from other law enforcement agencies across the Bay Area through the CopLink interface. This sharing of information may help officers to solve crimes that would otherwise have gone unsolved.
RIMS allows for more extensive police records keeping and data searches than our previous
legacy system. It also has allowed UPD to incorporate all of our law enforcement data
systems into one system.
UPD Holiday Toy Drive Helps Local Families
For the 22nd consecutive year, the UPD organized Holiday Toy Drive provided toys and food for families in our community who are in need. Thanks to the SJSU community who generously donated toys and money, 184 families in the campus community were able to celebrate the holidays with a little more joy. Toys were handed out by Santa Claus to over 450 children. A supermarket gift certificate was also given to each family. Both the children and the adults were very thankful.
Santa Claus was able to personally deliver gifts to 58 families at their homes in the surrounding neighborhood. Other families came to SJSU where they were greeted by Santa Claus with their gifts. The children watched holiday movies while they waited in line to meet Santa.
Sign up for the new Holiday Toy Drive payroll deduction plan to make a monthly donation. Give as little as $1 per month. Your donation it is tax-deductible.
Thank you to all who have donated toys, money and time!
