BATS Tour

BATS Main Menu

The Main Menu has different options based on user profile. For example, an agency user can create, maintain, modify or search incidents and activities, and can create incident and activity reports. Users can also view the latest advisories as well as access the Investigative Resource Library.

Short Form

With BATS, you can create incidents on either the Standard Form or the Short Form. The one-page Short Form contains the most critical incident fields. It provides you a quick method to enter your arson and explosives incidents. Incidents you create with the Short form can be later accessed via the standard form where you can add additional details.

Device Search

This real-time function allows a user to search nationwide for similar devices based on device components and other incident details. This reduces time spent researching old case files. Since the information is entered once, it eliminates redundancy.

Subject Search

This real-time function allows a user to search nationwide to identify potential suspects.

Search Match

Outside agencies only see contact information for the case investigator. Each user decides what to share with other agencies. This feature is ideal for multi-jurisdictional Investigations.
