Business Technology Unit

The Business Technology Unit provides technical support for the crime-fighting efforts of the rest of the department. These include CAPRS (Computer Assisted Police Records System) and other public safety applications.The CAPRS application contains police incident and arrest reports from 1990 and stores accident reports for seven years. CAPRS is scheduled to be replaced by a modern records management system (PIMS: Police Information Management System) in late spring 2018.

BTU also oversees the department's Internet and internal websites.  It developed and maintains a specialized timekeeping and payroll accounting system. It also manages MPD security for the Criminal Justice Data Network (CJDN), a national database of criminal history records, driver and vehicle records, and missing and wanted person files.
