Pinecrest Police Department and Miami Police Department aims the automation of a manual system that creates and distributes BOLO (Be On the Look Out) flyers. The system in place consists of police officers manually filling out BOLO (Be on the Lookout) reports and then sending them out to law-enforcement agencies. This procedure has a costly long-time frame to distribute significant information pertaining to a crime, and lacks features like searching or filtering, among other efficient functionalities. There is an automated system in place that has been developed by FIU, but this one does not suffice with new requirements provided by stakeholders. Therefore, a new version for the web application is being implemented. The BOLO 12.0 web application will securely disperse BOLOs via the web by distributing notifications automatically to appropriate entities. Also, the application will allow officers to renovate the paradigm of solving criminal cases.
