The Department of the Interior (DOI) Incident Management Analysis and Reporting System (IMARS) is a records-management system designed to provide seamless sharing of law enforcement reporting information between all DOI law enforcement programs, and to provide a consistent, reliable way to share information with partner agencies. Deployed to more than 6,000 users in FY 2012, IMARS allows DOI to manage law enforcement activities on the 500 million acres of land that it owns and manages in order to ensure the safety and protection for millions of visitors each year.

These responsibilities require the collection, analysis, management, and reporting of information by DOI law enforcement officers, including tribal law enforcement. IMARS access allows officers, agents, and dispatchers to access departmental and national databases from their immediate locations, significantly enhancing officer safety in the field. DOI is currently testing and evaluating an interface between IMARS and the FBI’s eGuardian system.
