Arizona Game & Fish Chooses Legal Files Software for Law Enforcement Branch

“We licensed Legal Files to help us manage only one type of legal matter . . .  but Legal Files is very robust, and we quickly realized it could handle much more.”  

Seeking a way to handle revocations of hunting and fishing license privileges more efficiently, the Arizona Game and Fish Department has licensed Legal Files case management software for use by its Law Enforcement Branch, the software’s developer, Legal Files Software, Inc. announced today.

The Branch, which is responsible for the administration of the Department’s revocation process, is using Legal Files to maintain payment records, revocation periods and the completion of hunter safety education classes, according to Law Enforcement Branch Officer Manager Mary Begnoche.

“We licensed Legal Files to help us manage only one type of legal matter, license revocation, which could be related to hunting, fishing or both.” Begnoche said. “But Legal Files is very robust, and we quickly realized it could handle much more. It is not only helping us manage all of the convictions, track court dates and outcomes, fines, payments and hunter education completion, but it also includes complete document assembly and document management functions, so creating and coordinating legal documents is less time consuming.”

Legal Files will also make it possible to compile revocation case data more quickly, and generate the state’s monthly summary report in less time, she said.

In addition to the licensing of its software, Legal Files Software, Inc. provided project management, implementation assistance and training for the Arizona Game and Fish Department project.

As part of the state’s second largest statewide law enforcement agency, the Department’s officers are charged with law enforcement beyond the pavement, ensuring public safety in the outdoors and the sustainable use of wildlife resources.
