Case Study #1: Reducing Opioid Cases with Data
Presenters: Captain Adam Geissenberger, Pinellas Park Police Department, Florida; and Jeremy Summers, Product Evangelist, Tyler Technologies
In communities throughout the United States, public safety agencies are facing constant challenges of doing more with less. With more avenues of communication and the public’s need to know more details about what their local governments are doing, public safety agencies need to access and share their data more readily than ever.
For the Pinellas Park Police Department (PPPD), located in the most populous county in Florida, public safety officials were dealing with an overwhelming amount of opioid overdoses in the city, a voracious need from the public to know more about what police were doing, and a better way to access their data.
With the collaboration of their crime prevention team and establishments within the community, PPPD was able to see the big picture of opioid usage and overdose with geo-location technology and analytic tools to reduce these cases by almost 60%.
Case Study #2: Leveraging CAD to help map COVID-19 cases
Presenter: Tommy Hanson, Application Specialist, Douglas County Sheriff, CO
As COVID-19 continues to cause health emergencies throughout the world, public safety agencies need a way to reduce exposure for first responders and track positive cases.
Dispatchers with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) in Colorado actively work to protect first responders in Douglas and Elbert counties by utilizing alerts in the department’s computer aided dispatch (CAD) system. With alerts from CAD, dispatchers are able to provide first responders with information regarding addresses where individuals have tested positive for COVID-19.
