Staff Responsibilities
The TIME & Technical Services team provides telephone and in-person support and troubleshooting to criminal justice agencies. This team can handle any problem but the most common requests for assistance include eTIME browser, Portal 100 and interface connections, TRAIN applications and fingerprint submissions. Half of the team focuses on making sure the system is fully functional and that agencies have appropriate access to the system and critical information. The other half of the team conducts statewide TIME System training for criminal justice personnel. This half of the team is also responsible for conducting an individual, triennial, audit of each agency connected to the TIME System. The audit process is intended to ensure proper system use and accurate record entry. The team has created many sample forms for your convenience. Many of these forms can be modified to suit your agency needs. We are always looking to improve our services. If you have any suggestions that will help us improve our services to you please contact

eTIME makes much TIME System data available to users via the internet. eTIME allows users access any time and almost anywhere (certain limitations exist) to criminal justice information. Portal 100 is software used by many law enforcement agencies to connect to the TIME System to perform queries and make entries such as, wanted and missing persons, stolen vehicles and articles, and protection orders and injunctions. TRAIN stands for Training Resources Available on the Internet and is an online learning tool for the law enforcement community. Each person with access to the TIME System is required to complete some form of training. Training requirements are based on the type of use. TRAIN allows TIME System users to complete their training at their own pace, anytime and anywhere that is most convenient for them.
