With 460 sworn at the Volusia County Sheriff's Office and over 750 sworn at the surrounding agencies, this solution will allow over 1,200 sheriff deputies and police officers to stay apprised of activities and to collaborate with each other using situation-based bulletins, secure blogs and case management tools that optimize the sharing of crime-related information.
Serving 16 municipalities covering 1,200 square miles, the Volusia County Sheriff's Office strives to maintain the highest professional standards while delivering a full range of community-based law enforcement and crime prevention programs to the citizens of Volusia County. The NC4 Street Smart solution will equip sheriff deputies and police officers throughout the County with the sophisticated technology and critical resources they need to fight crime and will improve the way they communicate. NC4 Street Smart provides a common operating picture of structured vs. unstructured data that allows officers to access real-time data in order to pinpoint crimes, patterns, and incidents.
"NC4 Street Smart is cutting edge technology that, when deployed, will enhance our ability to apprehend suspects quickly and keep our deputies and community safe," said Michael Chitwood, Sheriff of the Volusia County Sheriff's Office.
NC4 Street Smart takes advantage of successful policing practices combined with proven technology to provide an easy-to-use analysis platform.
