A records management system (RMS) provides storage, archiving, retention, editing and observation of law enforcement records within an agency. Massachusetts police departments that submit their crash reports to the MassDOT Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) electronically do so via an RMS acquired from one of several associated vendors. The RMV has established a set of functional specifications and standards for these systems, which include validation rules and edit checks which must be implemented. Often when crash reports are submitted containing invalid or incomplete data entries it is due to outdated RMS software or RMSs without current RMV specifications implemented. This is sometimes due to law enforcement agencies not making updates to their software when it becomes available. Posted here are the current specifications required by the RMV.
