The #1 Public Records Software Solution for California Public Safety Organizations

A unique module specifically for Public Safety organizations in California managing requests under recent amendments to the CA Penal Code and Public Records Code (Senate Bill 1421 and Assembly Bill 748) that facilitate the release of certain records relating to officer use-of-force and audio/video recordings of “critical incidents”.


Automatically send staff alerts prior to 60-day mark and requester notice every 180 days while records are withheld.


Built-in SB 1421 and AB 748 deflection methods, avoiding requests before they’re submitted.

Proactively Service

Built-in SB 1421 and AB 748 auto-directory of messages to proactively service the public, avoiding requests before they’re submitted.


Redaction software to mask sensitive personnel information directly within the system.


Use pre-configured workflows to automatically create activities to check whether criminal investigations remain open, then disclose or continue to withhold as the law mandates.


Seamlessly integrate with your video provider. NO file size limits.


Advanced Request Classification allows administrators to actively reclassify requests as SB 1421 Sensitive. This masks the request and its related documents from other users and allows for comprehensive analytics around your organizations SB 1421 activities.
