So I ran into this recently. I have no idea how to run Year of Manufacture plates on antique cars on IMC on the MDT. I asked dispatch, they quickly showed me how to run it on openfox but we couldn't figure out IMC. From my understanding the RMV lists it as a AQ plate with a PAY ALARS code. But i don't get the correct response.

I am a patrolman who often sits desk.

You don't have CJIS Web on your MDT? I've never tried running one through IMC on the MDT but I'll try this evening.

IMC sucks. I was trying to run a QH on my mdt today and nothing came back. I talked to our IT who spoke w IMC who blamed it on a state upgrade. Hey imc figure this sh$t out.

Learn how to use OpenFox. The UI isn't as nice but it can do nearly everything...and if you learn the formats you can do everything on the command line instead of using the form input screens.

You have to love the Mass RMV, God help you if are an CJIS operator trying to run a livery or dealer plate, its takes a chemistry degree. But if you piss through a toll without your ez-pass it doesn't matter what type of plate you have, those fuckers will find you. $$$

IMC vs. CJIS etc, etc, etc..........
All I know is I recently rode the pine for just over 4 months while IOD. Between CJIS, Phones, radios, Lobby Window, and Lieutenant hovering around, I'm starting a petition for NATIONAL DISPATCHERS RECOGNITION WEEK!!!!

What language was that Guy?
* Que Samuel L Jackson voice " DISPATCH M-F DO YOU SPEAK IT!" :p

We don't have CJIS on MDT, Only IMC. IMC and Openfox at the desk. I'm told I have a log in for Openfox, but I only use it to double check WMS, so the dispatchers I relieve stay logged in. If I have to report a stolen MV or such I call one of them for a step by step.

I'm the last of the patrolman-dispatchers. Hopefully soon I won't have to sit the desk ever, but I tend to be the go to for any odd jobs. Booking, calling the clerk, calling for extras when SHTF, walk a new guy through emergency 209A, etc ( I take it as a compliment)
All the new kids never got trained, and withe a few exceptions anyone senior to me is either out of date or was a dispatcher originally so they are trusted to cover when I can't

Any way, end of day, it sounds like IMC sucks in one more way and its impossible.
