TraCS has been operational in a production environment for Illinois State Police since March of 2015 with rollout of Crash and Vehicle Inspection forms. Once these forms stabilized, Illinois State Police set off on an aggressive schedule to add additional patrol forms, a new investigative case management system and an intelligence component within TraCS. TraCS has been well received in the field, providing an easy-to-use standard process for the collection of data and streamlined operations.
