Overland Park, Kansas Selects Intergraph Public Safety's CAD Solution(July 26, 2001)
The IPS system will consist of computer aided dispatch (CAD), police records management (RMS), automated field reporting, and mobile data computing. The IPS system will also help OPPD greatly improve their process of turning raw data into integrated useful information for reporting purposes.
The City of Overland Park is located in the Kansas City metropolitan area, and has a population of 151,000. The rapidly growing city is noted throughout the Midwest for its progressive atmosphere. Likewise, the OPPD has long been recognized as an innovator of sophisticated police programs and as a leader in law enforcement creativity. The Overland Park Police respond to approximately 300,000 calls for service a year.
"The Overland Park Police Department was looking for one company that could provide a single solution for CAD, RMS and Mobile. The Department also wanted to put as much information as possible in the hands of the Officers in the field. We believe that IPS offers the solution that will meet our needs," said Major Keith Faddis, Deputy Chief of Police, Overland Park Police Department.
"Intergraph Public Safety is looking forward to our partnership with the Overland Park Police Department. Through this effort, IPS and OPPD will achieve the department's goals of a fully integrated public safety solution where information is shared seamlessly across the city for the benefit of its citizens and employees," said Dr. Roger O. Coupland, president of Intergraph Public Safety.
