NEW YORK, NY December 6, 2019Mark43, the leading cloud-based public safety software company, today announced that it has earned a spot on the Texas Department of Public Safety’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) Certified Vendors list with its seamlessly compliant Records Management System (RMS). As per NIBRS Certification Procedures, agencies with unapproved vendors must submit three consecutive months of data with a 4% or less error rate. Mark43’s cloud-based RMS has far outperformed the base requirement, enabling a 0% error rate for three consecutive months.

In order for a vendor to be added to this listing, they must be working with a Texas Law Enforcement Agency (LEA) to submit data to the Texas Department of Public Safety and pass the NIBRS Certification process. Mark43 works with a number of Texas agencies including the Walker County Sheriff’s Office and Addison Police Department.

With round-the-clock customer support for onboarding, transitions, and implementation, Mark43 is dedicated to preparing customers for the 2021 NIBRS deadline that the FBI announced in June 2016. The team built an interactive data reporting workspace within Mark43 RMS that has helped to remove common pain points from records staff workflows. Workspace features include code mapping, interactive error results, real-time summary statistics, multiple export formats, and history archive exports. 

In developing the NIBRS workspace, Mark43 partnered with SEARCH-NCJIS, a non-profit which hosts the FBI’s official GitHub repository for cost-effective NIBRS participation. Mark43 is both the only vendor partner of SEARCH and the sole RMS vendor contributing open source code to the repository. Its technology, hosted on AWS GovCloud, is also compliant with the Service Organization Controls 2 (SOC 2) and allows agencies to maintain CJIS compliance.

“The NIBRS Technical Specification is not meant to be software-friendly; however, we’ve done the hard work to build in the rules and validations to make sure any agency is compliant.” said Matthew Polega, Co-Founder & Head of Marketing at Mark43. “We stay ahead of FBI regulatory changes so our clients can focus on their day jobs. These perfect results are particularly exciting because they are a concrete demonstration of how we can entirely take the stress of NIBRS compliance off their shoulders.”
