Fourteen public safety agencies purchased software from Spillman Technologies for the first time during the first quarter of 2011, bringing the total number of Spillman customers to more than 900 public safety agencies in 35 states nationwide.
Also, 45 agencies expanded existing Spillman systems, the company announced.
In Virginia, the Lee County Sheriff's Department, Lee County E-911, and the Norton Police Department will use Spillman software to share data with sheriff's offices and communications centers in two other Virginia counties. The agencies will store their Spillman data on two shared servers, allowing them to exchange critical information and reduce costs associated with buying, maintaining, and administering their own server equipment.
Lincoln County, Nev., deputies will be able to use the Quickest Route feature of Spillman's Mobile AVL Mapping module to find the fastest driving route to a location while taking into account natural barriers and the local street network. With Spillman's Mobile Voiceless CAD module, deputies will be able to view information in real time from their laptop computers. Voiceless CAD will also allow the agency to access information in the field while freeing radio airtime for higher-priority calls.
Deputies at the Cumberland County (Maine) Sheriff's Office will be able to use Spillman InSight to search for data gathered by surrounding agencies — even agencies using disparate servers. The agency also adopted Spillman's CompStat Dashboard module, which allows personnel to quickly identify crime trends and patterns using information in the Spillman database.
The Sevier County (Utah) Sheriff's Office will use Spillman's Mobile software to view records and call information from the field. Deputies can view the location of incidents and other units on an electronic map as well as scan a driver license and automatically populate Mobile search screens with the driver's name, date of birth, address, physical description, and a driver license identification number.
