Colorado Springs PD selects New World Systems' public safety solutions
New software will streamline officer reporting and enable critical information sharing
The Colorado Springs, Colo. Police Department has signed a contract to license New World Systems’ Aegis Suite of Public Safety Software on the Microsoft® platform to replace a legacy system that no longer meets the Department’s needs. The new solution will help the Police Department increase efficiency by eliminating redundant data entry and improving information sharing capabilities.
To select the new solution, a committee representing all areas of the Colorado Springs Police Department conducted an in-depth evaluation of available software vendors across the country. They were looking for a solution that offered time-saving workflow, easy-to-use field reporting and software that could be configured to fit many of their Department’s processes. The committee was impressed by New World’s professionalism and project commitment, and unanimously selected the Company’s solutions as the best fit for the Police Department.
“Our demands for an advanced system are high and our expectations even higher,” said Police Chief Richard Myers. “Our members deserve effective technology that works and helps them accomplish our mission. We’ve selected New World, in part, due to their successful track record and availability to help us move forward.”
New World is providing the Police Department with Aegis Law Enforcement Records Management, Mobile Field-based Reporting, Aegis Link and Decision Support software developed in-house using proven Microsoft® technology, industry-standard Windows® Server and SQL® Server. Seamlessly integrated with advanced electronic workflow, the solution will save time and improve data accuracy by eliminating redundant data entry and ensuring that information flows effortlessly from the field to Records. New World’s solution will also improve reporting and access to information from Records. Easy-to-use Field-based Reporting will save time for officers in the field with advanced tools that make more information available with less key strokes to help officers quickly and easily complete and submit reports from their vehicles.
“New World’s solution is certainly going to put better and more timely information at the fingertips of our officers,” said Commander Susan Autry. “It’s also going to reduce data entry and streamline workflow for our Records Department.”
New World’s web-based Aegis Link will also enable the Colorado Springs Police Department to securely share information with surrounding law enforcement agencies. Colorado Springs Police Department officials are looking forward to using New World’s software to increase efficiency and improve access to regional information that will help them better serve a population of more than 414,000 residents.
