Council approves agreement to upgrade dispatch and records management system
On Tuesday, City Council approved an agreement for a $1.197
million for a Computer Aided Dispatch and Records Management System
(CAD/RMS) to replace the city’s outdated unit with new, state-of-the-art
“The current records management and
dispatch system has been in place for more than 10 years and technology
has changed dramatically in that time,” Police Chief Chuck Hooker said.
“Pflugerville is one of the fastest growing cities in the country, thus
our police department needs this essential equipment upgrade to help us
continue to serve our citizens and reach call demands.”
The new system automates large
portions of the dispatch procedure. The CAD/RMS can send details to the
officers in the field, help create expedited incident reports and
includes an analytics capability. “With the new software, we will have
predictive analytics,” Hooker said. “We can quickly create maps to
inform officers of crime patterns and calls for service when they come
on shift, we can monitor trends and pinpoint problem areas more quickly
and access real-time data from the field."
Additional benefits of the system
include a more searchable database, ability to manage calls for multiple
jurisdictions, mapping capacity and heightened evidence management with
images and tracking interfaces.
