LAKE MARY, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CentralSquare Technologies, an industry leader in public safety software, announced that five public safety agencies in the Hampton Roads region in Virginia are enhancing their situational awareness by uniting forces through a hub that links their CAD systems with CentralSquare Unify™ (CAD-to-CAD) technology. The police departments of Chesapeake, Suffolk and Virginia Beach, along with enabled neighboring agencies, will be able to coordinate data sharing and shared responses to best serve the citizens in the area.
CentralSquare’s Unify technology, formerly known as CAD-to-CAD, provides information-sharing capabilities to enable regional policing and fire support to connect without limitations. The network allows nearby police departments to seamlessly connect their CAD systems from any vendor, sharing relevant data to locate the closest available unit, enabling the most efficient and coordinated response. The police departments among the five agencies will save valuable time responding to calls and providing crucial information needed by officers on patrol.
“In an emergency, every second matters. CentralSquare Unify creates an interconnected system between neighboring jurisdictions which goes beyond situational awareness, cultivating a collaborative environment of law enforcement and response agencies to benefit these Virginia communities,” said Scott Panacek, Product Manager of Unify (CAD-to-CAD) at CentralSquare Technologies. “This solution saves valuable time dispatching the proper response across county borders, getting to the people in need faster and more efficiently."
The Hampton Roads area hub marks CentralSquare’s 30th Unify network deployment across the nation. The police and fire departments that currently live with CentralSquare’s Unify technology have reported a 50% reduction in calls with coordinating agencies.
By implementing CentralSquare’s public safety solutions throughout their systems, the agencies will connect and share real-time information to keep their communities and officers safe, using technology connecting CAD systems since 2008.
