First Major City Police Department in Northeast to Deploy

Next-Generation Tactical Command and Control System to Shorten Response

Time, Gain Geospatial Insights of Crime Trends, and Enhance Officer

Safety

RICHMOND, Va. & VIENNA, Va.–(EMWPresswire)–Ordia Solutions, the leading provider of tactical command and

control systems for first responders and their chain of command,

announces the successful deployment by the Richmond Police Department

(RPD) of Ordia Solutions next-generation

Mobile Tactical Collaboration System (MTCS)

and AdvanTraq GPS to enhance police

operations. The system will be used for a variety of functions from

critical incident response, major events security and critical

infrastructure protection, to routine patrol operations and weekly

briefings on crime trends throughout the city.

In addition to supplying the collaborative command and control software

and personnel GPS trackers, Ordia Solutions will provide the Department

with training, support, system customization, and additional services to

integrate MTCS with existing technologies including Intergraph®

CAD and AVL systems. Knowing the real-time

location of our officers in relation to an operation, incident site,

support elements, and each other is of immense benefit to the chain of

command and officer safety, said David M.

McCoy, Interim Chief, Richmond Police. The

Ordia Solutions technology has given the Department a force-multiplier

advantage during the planning and execution of a major incident response

or routine police operation.

Because the MTCS tactical command and control system is Web-based and

inherently interoperable, RPD is leading an effort to bring other local,

state, and federal law enforcement jurisdictions, as well as Fire and

EMS services in the Richmond area, to be part of a regional mutual aid

consortium using MTCS, for those public safety operations where a

regional, all-hazard, coordinated, and timely response is essential. The

Richmond Police Department has had a rich history of aggressively

exploiting innovative technologies and processes to enhance its

community policing mission, said Joe E.

Ordia, Chairman and CEO, Ordia Solutions. This

MTCS deployment demonstrates that RPD will continue to lead its peers

around the nation in delivering a safer city for its residents and

visitors.
