Lethbridge Police have implemented a smartphone solution that integrates with their Niche Records Management system that revolutionizes the way the front line operates. The solution, Smart Squad, was implemented in late 2015 and is creating dividends by providing officer & clerk efficiencies, decreasing data entry errors and increasing officer safety. It is also helping Lethbridge meet the increasing demands on Police based upon the Jordan decision. The functionality that Smart Squad provides officers in Lethbridge includes the following:
- Mobile RMS, CPIC & PIP Searching
- Officer Note Taking
- Report Writing and Tasking
- Location Awareness
- Electronic Citations
- Secure Instant Messaging
Lethbridge has partnered with the team that developed Smart Squad, and are working together on several exciting additions in 2019 that we intend to share.
