When do we use this?
OPS-COM now allows System Owners and Administrators the ability to setup roles that will restrict access to information and features in OPS-COM. Roles are a group of permissions that are bundled and assigned to a set of users. For example, you may wish to create a role for Patrol Officer. You will set the permissions for this role and assign users the role of Patrol Officer when you would like to grant them permissions that match that job. Users can be assigned multiple roles.

Below you will find a list of all Permissions currently available for you to assign to different roles. It is important to note that not all permissions are stand-alone. Some permissions are dependent on others to function correctly.
