MOMS has a new look and can now create charts and reports. Starting in early February when users log into moms they are greeted with a welcome page that presents two methods of searching. The Interactive Map Search allows for the traditional look of MOMS where users can search offenders using a map interface. By clicking the Interactive Database Search users can perform many different search types by using pre-configured dashboard like search forms. Users can switch between these views at any time by clicking the button at the top of the page.
When users return search results they now have more options for how to view the results. Within the results table there is now the option to create a .pdf case report for an individual offender. Also in the upper left corner of the results table there is an icon of a pie chart. When a user clicks on the pic chart icon they can easily create a pie chart from any data that is in the results table.
After talking to many users it became apparent that often times they wanted the ability to filter the results table. By clicking on the small silver funnel that is displayed in the field heading of every field you can easily filter data to further refine your search criteria.
In addition all of these new abilities new links on the left side of the home page give users access to general information, the ability to leave feedback, find out about new features and learn about the data available in MOMS.
MOMS now allows access to the Baltimore City Gun Offender Registry. After working with the Baltimore City Police Department users of MOMS now have the ability to search he registry. The Baltimore City Gun Offender Registry requires individuals convicted of gun offenses in Baltimore City to register their current address and report to the Baltimore Police Department every six months for a period of three years following their conviction or period of incarceration. Within 48 hours of conviction, each gun offender is required to file their names and aliases, a photograph, and a confirmed address. The Baltimore City Gun Offender Registry data is updated at the beginning of every month.
