"A solution like SmartForce is long overdue."- Chief Chris Skinner
Richland, WA (PRWEB) March 27, 2013
The Richland Police Department has implemented SmartForce™, a solution designed by Adventos Consulting to help law enforcement agencies reduce risk and maximize department efficiency. SmartForce was developed by Adventos in partnership with the Richland Police Department (RPD) to make sure the solution would meet the needs of not only the RPD, but the majority of departments nationwide. The solution was selected and implemented in less than 12 weeks.
The Richland SmartForce project centralized the management of administrative, operations, community, and command staff information workflows and processes at the City of Richland. Overall, SmartForce is a collaboration tool that increases operational awareness at all levels while bridging communication gaps for the RPD.
“The most innovative element of SmartForce is that it responds to a longstanding need in police agencies by building intuitive workflow processing on one of the strongest collaboration platforms available [Microsoft SharePoint]. The results resolve slow, paper-based reporting and monitoring processes with faster and more responsive technology. This literally makes communities and officers safer. Because it is Cloud-based, there are no server hardware costs and it is less labor intensive to maintain. Allowing personnel to be more efficient via a technology that is easy to use and operate is especially key. A solution like SmartForce is long overdue.” – Chief Chris Skinner.
For the RPD, results include:
- Lower operating costs in the department
- Compliance with required policing procedures
- Reduced legal risk from stronger case management
- Improved officer and case success
- More responsive allocation of policing resources
- Reduced cost of collaboration and communication
- Organized and easier document management
- Up-to-date and easy-to-locate information and intelligence sharing
- Training and personnel management processes, including training material dissemination and employee training records
- Integrated information and analysis, helping maximize tactical and strategic planning
