Crime Report - Dec. 11, 2013
Lack of KCSO reports due to new computer system
Placeholder Image
For the past several weeks, the Chronicle-Independent has been unable to publish Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) incident reports due to the implementation of a new incident report database called InterAct Online. The C-I has not yet been provided access to the new database as it had with the KCSO’s previous system. (After this story went to press for our print edition, the C-I learned that the KCSO will begin emailing reports to us enabling us to begin publishing these reports again with our next crime report. --ed.) InterAct Online is an Internet-based system replacing the KCSO’s old reporting system known as RMS. RMS, recently purchased by InterAct, was an in-house, server-based system that took a lot of time, money and energy to maintain, KCSO officials said. The new system will cost the KCSO a little more than $34,000 a year, Sheriff Jim Matthews said, but the will also help alleviate fuel costs associated with the RMS system.
