REDMOND, Wash., Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- E-SPONDER, a leader in incident management software, today unveiled a new daily crime fighting application at the Microsoft Worldwide Public Safety Symposium. Working in conjunction with the Tampa Police Department, E-SPONDER leveraged their acclaimed incident management software to deliver a day-to-day solution that tracks and visualizes criminal activity, streamlines information sharing between personnel and reduces time spent manually researching crime trends.
"E-SPONDER has been an integral part of our incident management work for years now, so it was a natural fit to utilize the software's information sharing capabilities to more efficiently track crimes," said Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor. "Providing officers with fingertip information about criminal activity to cross check with potential offenders will undoubtedly help officers solve crimes more quickly and therefore make Tampa a safer city."
The Tampa Police Department, which already utilizes E-SPONDER's incident management solution for more than 800 events each year, provided invaluable input and knowledge to E-SPONDER on how to further advance the central command functionality and benefit the daily needs of law enforcement. The resulting application leverages E-SPONDER's proven capabilities to visualize crime data in a way that leads to faster crime solving and improved public safety. The application also takes full advantage of E-SPONDER's information sharing capabilities to promote intelligence sharing between front line officers, detectives and supervisors.
"Our goal in developing this application was simple – minimize the gaps in efficiency law enforcement faces every day and help officers focus more on solving crimes in their community," said Robert Wolf, E-SPONDER President and CEO. "Having seen E-SPONDER's capabilities in their incident response work, Chief Castor and the Tampa Police Department created a vision to expand the solution's use throughout the department. Their vision provided a roadmap for us to expand our solution, resulting in improved services for Tampa's citizens without additional costs."
Like all E-SPONDER solutions, the application utilizes Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 to provide a familiar, intuitive interface that requires minimal training to implement. The flexible of the SharePoint Server 2007 foundation is also what allows the solution to adapt to the unique day-to-day needs of law enforcement. Users can customize the system to receive and manage information based on the goals of their agency.
