The focus of this work was on the design and implementation of a web based forensic information management system for the West Virginia State Police Forensics Laboratory (WVSPFL). The software tool enables law enforcement agents to submit crime information to the Forensic Laboratory via a secure Internet connection. The tool also enables each of the nine units of WVSPFL to process the information electronically. Online electronic forms were created to mirror the existing paper based forms, making the transition easier. The existing processes were standardized and streamlined, there by minimizing information inconsistency. The crime information once gathered is automatically uploaded to a database. It can then be viewed and queried by any authorized law enforcement officer at anytime from anywhere. The software tool was implemented in ASP.NET with MS SQL Server as the database. The key benefits of the system are streamlining of information flow, around the clock availability of case information, and sharing of information between the various law enforcement agencies.
