SAN DIEGO, Calif. — The Sheriff's Department is rolling out a new records management system that is expected to transform the way the county's law enforcement agencies share information and solve crimes.

Crime reports will be filed in a computer database within hours instead of days or weeks. Reports will be easily searchable, allowing agencies to identify trends and serial criminals a lot quicker, officials said.

Eventually, law enforcement will be able to better track sex offenders, documented gang members, arsonists, pawn shop activities, warrants, restraining orders and more.
