Dispatching and mobile solution will improve incident management, regional interoperability

The Kansas City, Missouri, Police Department has selected an integrated suite of public safety software from Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure for use in its communications center and police vehicles. The dispatching and mobile solution will aid police in managing incidents and emergencies and serves as the first step toward the creation of a regional dispatch system.           

Replacing a legacy system, the Hexagon solution will help modernize the technology foundation that enables Kansas City Police Department operations. Its scalability and ease of integration will also aid the department’s efforts to connect its IT systems with neighboring jurisdictions, including Overland Park and Johnson County, Kansas (also Hexagon customers), for seamless regional dispatching. 

“Hexagon’s proven solution provides us with a highly adaptable system, configurable to meet our needs and workflows,” said Director of Information Services Mike Grigsby, Kansas City Police Department. “With Hexagon’s dispatching and mobile software, we are positioned to expand our service offerings through interoperable regional solutions.”

The police department’s solution features Hexagon’s industry-leading incident management software, Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD – pictured above right), which will be used at the department’s primary dispatch center and remote back-up facility. The suite includes Mobile for Public Safety, a powerful in-vehicle application, which will be used by all field officers. The agency’s new system also features EdgeFrontier®, an integration platform that will enable it to quickly build new interfaces to other dispatch and IT systems without the associated costs of custom development.

Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure provides mission-critical and business-critical solutions to governments and service providers. A global leader, proven innovator and trusted partner, our software and industry expertise help improve the lives of millions of people through safer communities, better public services and more reliable infrastructure.
