Spillman helps tribal agency streamline database

PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. – April 9, 2009 – The Ak-Chin Tribal Police Department is using software from Spillman Technologies to improve its information management and dispatch capabilities.

Using Spillman's Law Records module, the agency can quickly access records and images and conduct wild-card and sounds-like searches, allowing officers to conduct data searches using partial and similar-sounding words. Using Spillman's Visual Involvements© feature, the agency can also examine relationships between information.

The Ak-Chin Tribal Police Department serves more than 800 residents of the Ak-Chin Indian Community, located in Pinal County. The Arizona agency went live with Spillman's dispatch and records solutions in October. The department is one of 48 agencies in Arizona and more than 750 agencies across the nation using software from Spillman Technologies. The department is also among 21 tribal law enforcement agencies currently using Spillman software.

Spillman's Pin-Mapping module allows the agency to track activities and visualize trends across its 22,000-acre jurisdiction. Ak-Chin officers can plot incident data on a pin map, allowing them to see geographical relationships between incidents and suspects.

The department also purchased Spillman's Evidence Management, Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD), Traffic Information, and State Link modules and the E-911 Interface.

Spilllman software allows dispatchers to access records without exiting their CAD screen. Dispatchers can pass on crucial information to officers about criminal histories, warrants, and more, alerting them to potential dangers associated with a call or location.

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.
