Hero Schedule is the scheduling software for police departments, sheriffs offices & law enforcement

Every police department in America uses some form of shift scheduling. Some use pre-built software, others use spreadsheets, and some even use a pen and paper. Police departments need logical ways to structure their officers' shifts, time-off, vacations, and overtime.

Where many methods and software fall short is simple execution. Some software companies make software that was never originally designed for police departments. Other companies make software that has too many features and the user gets confused. This leads to a terrible experience for your officers, shift leads, and administrative staff.

Your department has specific scheduling needs. Some sworn officers work around the clock but on different schedules. Certain officers might be scheduled on certain shifts due to specific assignments, training levels, and supervisor tasking. When you add staffing requirements (which are an officer safety issue), employees calling in sick, vacation time accruals, FLSA compliance...it becomes a mountain of work for law enforcement supervisors.

Hero Schedule helps your police department simplify shift scheduling. A simple, clean user interface that is easy to learn. Employees can log in to request time-off, shift trades and check their schedule. Hero Schedule works on both mobile and desktop devices. Our scheduling software will help you stay legally compliant with labor laws, Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), and more. The servers are secure and backed up, keeping your department's data safe.
