LETS - Law Enforcement Traffic System
LETS was developed in conjunction with the Highway Safety Division of the Missouri Department of Transportation. LETS supports Missouri law enforcement agencies management of crash reports, citation, warning and complaint data. The four systems in one application, coupled with the capability for the agency to customize certain functions to address local requirements, provide a powerful administrative tool. An optional use interface with the Missouri Department of Revenue facilitates the retrieval of driver and vehicle registration information. Another optional use interface supports creation of an electronic crash report and transmission of that report to the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Contact REJIS to join the more than 100 law enforcement agencies in Missouri that use LETS.

LETS provides graphical location mapping tools for Crash Report entry which reduces departmental administrative overhead as well as improve the quality of data captured. LETS also has a data portal feature for Crash Reports and Citations to enable interfaces with local RMS solutions as well as supporting vendor solutions for public access to Reports.
