Information Management Division: Roles & Responsibilities

Welcome to the California Highway Patrol, Information Management Division (IMD)

The economic and political pressures of today's society are driving government agencies to meet accelerating demands for service with ever shrinking budgets. Doing more with less is a necessity. The CHP has incorporated this principle within its Vision for the future with a strategy for implementing technology in a reactive operational environment. The Department will continue to incorporate open systems architecture and common support files throughout the state to support the officer in the field, staff in Communications Centers and Area offices, and administrative personnel in Headquarters facilities.

Information Management Division responsibilities include:

  • Implementing and maintaining a durable technology infrastructure composed of equipment, software, policies and procedures, and trained support staff.
  • Providing reliable communications to meet the needs of all CHP commands.
  • Providing information system solutions to meet specific program requirements.
  • Collecting data and preparing special reports and statistical analyses about CHP operations, traffic collisions, and pursuits in order to meet the needs of both public and private entities.
