Make Confident Technology Decisions and Ensure Sustainability
Technology plays an indispensable role in the emergency response and criminal justice ecosystem — it provides essential information to telecommunicators, field personnel and practicioners, enables effective communications, enhanced decision-making and delivers faster and improved outcomes for the community.
Large-scale technology projects — such as call-handling equipment, computer-aided dispatch, records management and jail management systems — are complex and time-consuming undertakings. While they present significant opportunities, they create new challenges related to operations and policy, maintenance, integration and lifecycle support.
