Spillman integrates public safety data in Riverdale

The Riverdale (GA) Police Department is using a new high-tech software system from Spillman Technologies, a leading public safety software provider headquartered in Salt Lake City (UT).

With 36 sworn officers and 20 civilian personnel, the department is armed with cutting-edge solutions for Computer Aided Dispatch, records management, and mobile communications.

Riverdale's relatively small police department continually faces the challenges of widespread growth, requiring greater efficiency on the part of all public safety agencies. Now that the new software is in place, Lockett said he is reminded daily that his decision to purchase and implement the Spillman system was the right choice.

Using Spillman's mobile solution, the department has increased the visibility of patrol officers by tracking each unit's position in the field. Additionally, each patrol officer has the ability to access all system data tools, such as creating reports on-scene. Lockett said the department has also significantly improved its records management and workflow processes.

The Riverdale Police Department has been using the new system since December 4, 2006. The police department joins 11 other public safety agencies in Georgia using Spillman solutions.
