We are seeing PowerDMS usage increase exponentially as law enforcement agencies seek ways to respond to and be held accountable for the issues at hand by improving communications. Technology is a natural part of the solution.

As law enforcement agencies respond to national and community crises, usage of PowerDMS’s cloud-based crucial information and policy management platform has surged in the past month.

PowerDMS’s policy management platform increases trust and efficiency by simplifying how organizations manage, share and train on crucial information. The company has seen usage significantly increase as policies rapidly change to adapt to the national pandemic and the need for more measured accountability and community transparency in law enforcement.

“While we’ve seen that reviewing and creating new policies is crucial to keeping our communities safe, we also know that a policy is only as good as the way it’s communicated, trained on, and upheld,” said David DiGiacomo, CEO of PowerDMS. “We are seeing PowerDMS usage increase exponentially as law enforcement agencies seek ways to respond to and be held accountable for the issues at hand by improving communications. Technology is a natural part of the solution as it is quickly implemented, accountable and most important, effective.”

President Trump’s recent executive order stated, “State and local law enforcement agencies must constantly assess and improve their practices and policies to ensure transparent, safe, and accountable delivery of law enforcement services to their communities.” PowerDMS’s platform provides the tools necessary for law enforcement leaders to collaborate and consistently review their agency’s practices and policies to ensure they are constitutional, effective, and safe. Over the past 20 years, it has worked with more than 3,000 law enforcement agencies to bring policy, training and accreditation management needs into a single solution.

In 2015, after experiencing intense public scrutiny, the Baltimore Police Department adopted PowerDMS to make changes to the way they addressed policies and accountability in their department, and change its relationship with the community.

In addition to the recent executive order, COVID-19 has increased law enforcement agencies demand for a platform that would more quickly and easily alert employees about new policies or updates requiring signatures or acknowledgment, and provide robust, remote training opportunities.

Law enforcement agencies also rely on the PowerDMS platform to help them share information with their communities. PowerDMS’s public facing documents feature allows departments to identify specific policies and information stored in PowerDMS and make those documents available to the public. When policies are changed in PowerDMS, the public then has instant access to the newly published versions. Right now law enforcement agencies are using this feature to be transparent and have open conversations with their community in real time.
