Why is Documentation Essential for Your Facility?

Keeping track of employee performance is essential for training and certification purposes, enforcing policies & procedures, promoting growth within the ranks, and more. So whether you work within a law enforcement agency, emergency medical service provider, dispatch center, or a corrections facility, let’s take a look at why you need a reliable system for documenting employee records.
Why is Documentation Essential for Your Facility

Know Who is Achieving and Who Isn’t

There are a lot of moving parts within a public safety facility no matter what sector you’re in. Being able to see who is performing above standards and who is not will help your supervisory staff members determine appropriate promotions, demotions, and other choices throughout the year.
Whether you’re capturing forms for a new hire, checking in with a seasoned employee, or ensuring your instructors are certified, a proper, digital documentation system will ensure you have up-to-date employee information when you need it. .
Just think: how easy does your current system let you know if a new hire or trainee is actually learning what they need to learn, or that your supervisors are teaching what they need to teach?

Find Patterns Within Your Department
