Rumford PD to join regional data sharing network

SALT LAKE CITY – June 16, 2009 – The Rumford Police Department is using software from Spillman Technologies as part of a regional data sharing system.

The department joins a shared records system hosted by the Oxford County Sheriff's Office and used by the Oxford, Bethel, Norway, Mexico and Dixfield police departments. The system gives each agency the ability to access a wide range of name, incident, and property data gathered across the jurisdictions.

Using Spillman's Mobile solutions, officers have the ability to access records and dispatch information from the field, allowing them to respond to calls armed with critical information about the situation.

Spillman's Mobile State Link module enables officers to search the state and national databases for real-time information on names, vehicles, property, weapons, wanted persons, driver's license information, vehicle registration, stolen vehicles and missing persons.

Officers can use the Voiceless Dispatch module to view call updates, active Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) calls, and messages from their vehicle laptops.

The agency also purchased Spillman's Law Records and Traffic Information modules. The Rumford Police Department used grant funds from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to purchase the Spillman software.

The Rumford Police Department is one of 58 agencies in Maine and more than 750 agencies across the nation using Spillman software. The agency went live with their Spillman system in March.

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.
