We pioneered K9 records management. KATS was the first software ever developed for law enforcement K9 operations and continues to be the industry leader through ongoing development and enhancements. It was more than a decade before any competitors came into existence. We set the standard that all others try to emulate. The K9 Activity Tracking System is a dynamic record keeping program designed specifically for police K9 operations, training and deployments, designed to protect officers and agencies from potential liability. KATS has been developed by police K9 officers, prosecuting attorneys and software engineers to meet the needs of today’s law enforcement dog teams and has been protecting K9 units since 1991. It can be used from any platform without the need for software or application downloads.
Supervisors can manage file submissions and request follow-up reports as needed. Our Incident report system provides for nationwide suspect search and sharing of information. Bite ratio by demographics reports allow you to confront false accusations of abuse. Our training records management includes features to assist identifying training issues, and also features our TATS system designed to enhance detection dog training routines. Training collaboration allows you to share training setups with your entire team and even other agencies during group training. The complete system functions on any operating system and can be used on any Smartphone in the field, on your unit laptop or MDT, in your home or at the office. The system features key logging with audit trail capability for enhanced security.
KATS provides in-depth analysis of training activity and deployments of police dogs. It’s primary function is to provide court ready documentation at the touch of a button and is your first line of defense to buffer against potential direct and vicarious liability issues. You have everything you need about your entire section or an individual dog team at the touch of your fingertips. KATS is particularly unique in the industry in it’s ability to be completely modified and adapted to any individual agency needs.
