Abstract:

The Computer On-Line Police System COPS is a vehicle registration and ticket management system used at the Naval Postgraduate School NPS Security Department, which was designed by the Naval Computer and Telecommunications Station, San Diego, in 1991. COPS is an inadequate information system IS possessing the following weaknesses severely limited query capabilities, outdated system hardware, software design errors, fimetionality gaps, antiquated graphical user interfaces GUI, and no computerized data archiving capability. This thesis will try to alleviate these deficiencies. Using the System Development Methodology SDM, the authors hope to provide NPS, and potentially other Department of Defense DoD security forces, with a significantly improved vehicle registration database system. A Baseline Assessment of COPS verified that a new IS was necessary. A new IS, called the Law Enforcement and Vehicle Registration Administration System LEVRAS, was designed, programmed, and developed. The fully operational LEVRAS met all of the reqwrement specifications, and replaced COPS after a parallel conversion was conducted. Users were tramed, and the NPS Security Department accepted the new database system for its daily operations. Fully supporting the LEVRAS lifecycle, maintainance will be performed by the NPS Management Information System MIS Department.
