Opening OfficerReports for the First Time:
When you open OfficerReports for the first time you will see a dialog box that asks for several permissions as well as location access:
While on duty most officers will turn their screen off to save battery or have to switch to another app (when making a phone call for example). While your screen is off or you have OfficerReports running in the background your location data is not available - this can cause delay when performing actions as your location can take a moment to update when OfficerReports is running in the foreground again.
You will want to set your location access to Allow all the time for OfficerReports:
|While Allow only while using the app is an option here you'll want to tap Allow all the time|
Enable Always Location Access for OfficerReports if you selected "only while using" above:
You may see this prompt until you grant Allow all the time access:
| If the above prompt appears you can tap Allow all of the time to make this change for OfficerReports. If you tap Keep while-in-use access you may see this prompt again.|
