HUNTSVILLE, Alabama, January 21, 2016
The City of San Diego Police Department has selected an integrated suite of public safety software from Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure for emergency call handling, officer dispatch and incident management. Replacing an outdated and unsupported dispatch system, the Hexagon solution will expand the San Diego Police Department’s incident response capabilities through map-based views for calls,events and units in the field. The agency’s field officers will have in-car access to call information in real time to improve efficiency and situational awareness.
The San Diego Police Department’s solution features Hexagon’s Intergraph Computer-Aided Dispatch (I/CAD), industry-leading incident management software, including Mobile for Public Safety, a powerful in-vehicle, field application for mobile dispatching. The agency’s new dispatch system also includes Xalt, an integration platform that will enable the agency to develop new interfaces to other IT systems, including dispatch and systems used by other public agencies, without the associated costs of custom development.
“Partnering with the San Diego Police Department builds on our long-time relationship with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department,” said David McDonald, vice president and general manager for U.S. public safety, Hexagon Safety & Infrastructure. “Our solution will help the San Diego Police Department manage calls, incidents and resources better while enabling it to interface with other municipal, state and federal agencies.”
