With the InterAct Records Management System, we will not only see savings to taxpayers over the next decade, but have better access to crime data which will improve our response to the community.
Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) November 05, 2013
The Indianapolis Department of Public Safety announced last week the much anticipated go-live of its new cloud-based records management system (RMS) from InterAct. The new system will bring together records from more than sixty-five agencies into one, fully integrated system that allows real-time access to information where and when officers need it. This streamlined and efficient system will save police agencies considerable money and time, freeing up resources to help get more officers on the street fighting crime.
“This is another example of our regional policing efforts,” said Indianapolis Mayor Gregory Ballard. “Once implemented, the IMPD and its law enforcement partners will be better equipped to communicate with each other and better protect neighborhoods throughout central Indiana. “With the InterAct Records Management System, we will not only see savings to taxpayers over the next decade, but have better access to crime data which will improve our response to the community.”
“We are a more data and technology driven police department,” said IMPD Chief Rick Hite. “Timely and accurate data is essential to identifying crime trends and the people, places, and activities contributing to crime. We are look forward to its full implementation.”
Public Safety Communications Chief Tim Baughman added “These groups have helped us hit the ground running with this new records management system and paved the way for the 3,500 area officers who will be using the InterAct system.”
The first two agencies to adopt the new system are the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) Southwest District and the Speedway Police Department (SPD) where officers will begin using the system on a full-time basis this week.
InterAct RMS simplifies incident filing and report management for law enforcement officers and enables them to make informed decisions while in the field by granting comprehensive, instantaneous access to images, vehicles, organizations, addresses, and gang data. Additionally, officers will gain access to InterAct’s national data sharing network, InterDEx™. Officers can access InterDEx from inside the RMS application to quickly and easily query for relevant information from hundreds of other participating agencies and federal databases across the country.
“Cloud technology is a game changer for public safety by providing an architecture that encourages regional coordination and shared resources aimed at improving public safety outcomes”,” said Mike McGarry, InterAct GM/SVP of Products. “The architecture we’ve created for Indiana’s statewide system offers agencies of any size the opportunity to benefit from state-of-the-art technology because it eliminates redundant and expensive technology. We’re thrilled to see so many agencies join the project and contribute to its success.”
