  • Telestaf program

    My police department just got the telestaff program which controls roll call, overtime, puting in for personal days or swaps etc.... So far it has been a pain. Any officers who are familar with this system i would like to know how it has worked in your department. I know it is just another way to prevent senior officers from building for their retirement. Please all officers i would like your feedback.

    we use telestaff at my department, like all new LE software there is some growing pains, but I loved telestaff once we got familiar with it, no more dealing with time sheets, simple right click and drop down menu to add and remove stuff. lets me know who works and when. Love it.

      We use it. I should say that ours is a fire department with ~800 uniformed employees and 10 LEOs - our unit. That said, it was "in development" for approximately 2 years at a cost of nearly 1 million dollars. It's a crap system that is slower that a 2 year old running a 5k race because we have so many "rules" built into the system. I firmly believe we got it as a result of a class project by one of our command staff.

      Honestly, it really depends on how many personnel you intend to track, how many rules you build into the system, and how many supervisors can force entries. YMMV.

        We just started it also. I thought it would be a positive thing, but we got a 45 minute class, then went to it 2 months later. I barely remember how it works. I tried logging on from the car to figure it out, but every page takes about 2-3 min's to load. The schedules look like a mess with symbols, has your name in one zone, then your call sign in another zone. I think my dept will have a ways to go before we get the bugs worked out and it becomes easy (as they claim) task.
        Work harder! Millions on welfare depend on you...

              My dept has been using it for about a year. It has so many bugs it's not even funny. My dept likes to spend alot of money on stupid computer programs try them for a year and then go and purchase another. I don't even think most of the guys are even logging in to it anymore. The next big software they bought was Vison Mobile for a CAD system and then Vison Mobile Field Based Reporting. Being classified as an instructor in both I can say they are both POS!
