Utah Valley University Uses Spillman Data-Sharing System

June 18, 2010  | 

The Utah Valley University Police Department is now using Spillman software to exchange information with other Utah County agencies, according to Spillman.

"We wanted to interconnect with other Utah [County] police agencies to share information more completely and quickly," according to Utah Valley University Police Department Chief John Brewer.

Data sharing is an important tool for the department, according to Brewer said. The university has no on-campus housing, which means most students live in neighboring communities. Spillman software will allow the Utah Valley University Police Department to access data gathered by other Utah County law enforcement agencies, making it easier for officers to see correlations between on-campus and off-campus crimes. For example, if a student is suspected of an on-campus crime, the department can quickly search the Spillman system to see if the student has also committed crimes in other local jurisdictions.

"It has proven very valuable to access police involvement information from the Spillman system without having to contact other police agencies directly via telephone," according to Brewer. "That has been helpful in our investigative efforts."

Brewer said that Spillman's Law Records module allows the agency to track cases from beginning to end and link information about the people, property, and vehicles associated with a case.

"The system also enhances our report management process from initial report construction to case follow-up," according to Brewer. "It is a comprehensive records management system which we were without previously."

The Utah Valley University Police Department has also adopted Spillman's Dispatch and Mobile solutions. The agency will be one of 103 agencies in Utah and more than 800 agencies throughout the nation using Spillman software. They went live with the Spillman system in February.
