Franklin County and Preston PD strengthen dispatching

SALT LAKE CITY – March 27, 2009 – The Franklin County Sheriff's Office and Preston Police Department, in Idaho, are enhancing dispatching capabilities and protecting lives using Spillman software.

Dispatchers can use the Computer-Aided Dispatch module to quicken response times with instant access to integrated data. The system's automatic visual alerts and up-to-date information provide crucial information on warrants, criminal history and other dangers in the field to help improve officer safety.

In addition, with Spillman's Law Records module, city and county officials can prevent duplicate data entries through seamless integration with Spillman's CAD module. Personnel can also consolidate all law incident records into one database and create incident and case management reports.

The southeastern Idaho agencies also purchased Spillman's Jail Records and Imaging modules as well as its InSight™ data sharing product.

Spillman's Jail Records module will allow the county to streamline the booking process for future jail operations. Using the new system, personnel can quickly assess an inmate's risk and medical condition as well as track inmate location and movement.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office and Preston Police Department are among 37 agencies in Idaho and more than 750 agencies across the nation using Spillman software.

The agencies will go live using the Spillman system in the spring of 2009.

Spillman Technologies provides a full range of software solutions for public safety agencies, including Records Management, Computer-Aided Dispatch, Mobile Communications, Corrections Management, Fire/EMS Management, Resource Management, and Data Sharing.
