Spillman Software Hits the Road at Florida Agency

LOGAN, Utah – November 11, 2004 – Spillman Technologies announced today that it was selected by the West Melbourne Police Department to update the Florida agency's existing public safety software with integrated solutions for records management and mobile communication. Among other benefits, the new system will allow patrol officers to have direct access to information about people, vehicles and property from the field.

For the first time, officers on the road will have rapid, real-time information access to subject information, warrants, criminal histories and digital photos to determine where potential problems may occur and make queries for names, vehicles and driver's license information on the fly,” said Sergeant Mark Thompson, chairman of the computer committee that made the selection.

Additionally, the software will be used by the patrol and investigation divisions to accurately determine how to optimize department resources. The software will assist the department in projecting where funds will be spent, assist the agency in having a more proactive response to crime and increase crime solvability,” said Thompson.

The department was looking for a way to streamline their data workflow process by submitting reports to state agencies electronically. The computer program fulfills this objective, allowing for 'paperless' reporting to the State Attorney's Office, Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and the State of Florida.

The police department, which is currently dispatched by the county, will also implement Spillman's computer-aided dispatch software once the agency creates its own dispatch center in the next two to three years.

Spillman Technologies provides a full range of software solutions for public safety agencies, including Computer-Aided Dispatch, Records Management, Mobile Communications, Jail Management, Fire/EMS Management, and Resource Management solutions. The software is installed at more than 500 agencies nationwide.
