Commission Meeting Agenda Item
Consideration of Approval to Purchase Spillman Flex Mobile Software Computer Assisted Dispatch (CAD) for Police Vehicles
Staff Recommended Motion
Staff recommends approval to purchase Spillman Flex Mobile Software (CAD) for use in police vehicles.
Spillman Flex mobile software solutions are designed to bring the benefits of full-system integration to personnel in the field. These mobile capabilities help to increase visibility within the community and shorten call response time. With the Flex Mobile suite, police field personnel have immediate access to dispatch activity which allows them to begin responding to an emergency situation even before dispatch has finished taking the call. The mobile products provide relevant and updated information on the address of the call, nearby units, quickest routes, and any alerts on the location or people involved. This rapid dissemination of information is vital to keeping both officers and community members safe. Access to this information allows field personnel to quickly view any existing alerts or notifications. Using the Mobile Records module, field units can access agency data with speed and flexibility. With a single query, users can search for names, vehicles, incidents, property, and wanted persons. This software solution allows officers to view the information quickly in a large, user-friendly, touch screen format that is simple to use while in a patrol vehicle making it safer for our officers and the public.
