ONTARIO, OH-The Ontario Police Department has been using computer software called Power D-M-S for three years in its efforts to better train its officers and be more accountable to the public.

The software helps the department manage its policies and procedures and share that information quickly and efficiently with the staff.

The Power D-M-S program includes the use of body cameras to record traffic stops, accidents, and arrests.

The Ontario Police Department is seeking its first ever national accreditation through the Commission for Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies and is using the Power D-M-S software and body camera videos in its effort to achieve the prestigious designation.
