Oneida County using Spillman for data sharing, jail needs

SALT LAKE CITY – June 15, 2009 – The Oneida County Sheriff's Office is using software from Spillman Technologies to join a data-sharing effort designed to protect communities in southern Idaho and northern Utah.

Data sharing allows agencies to identify regional public safety challenges and access a wide range of information when conducting investigations. The Oneida County Sheriff's Office joined a shared system that includes the Bannock County Sheriff's Office, the Pocatello police and fire departments, and the Chubbuck police and fire departments. Using Spillman InSight™, the Idaho agency can access data collected by agencies using non-Spillman software systems.

The Oneida County Sheriff's Office also adopted Spillman's Law Records, Civil Process, Evidence Management, Traffic Information, Computer-Aided Dispatch, Licenses and Permits, and Jail Records modules.

Spillman's Jail Records module enables county personnel to quickly assess whether inmates entering the Oneida County Correctional Facility need to be placed under maximum security and if they require special medical care. The assessments are decision-tree based, meaning that each answer in an assessment is determined by the inmate's previous answer, resulting in more accurate inmate evaluations.

The agency went live with their Spillman system on January 5. They are one of 37 agencies in Idaho and more than 750 agencies nationwide using Spillman, a leading public safety provider headquartered in Salt Lake City.

Spillman 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.
