EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NC4, an innovator in public safety and emergency management solutions, is introducing NC4 SAFECOP™ to Law Enforcement agencies at the International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference in San Diego, CA (Booth #2953). NC4 SAFECOP is the newest addition to NC4's suite of Situational Readiness solutions.
NC4 SAFECOP is an innovative new crime-fighting solution that is already being proven to reduce crime on the streets of Tampa, Florida. NC4 SAFECOP was used at the Republican National Convention to help reduce crime by 26 percent during the event.
"NC4 SAFECOP will revolutionize the way Tampa polices the city," says Chief Jane Castor of the Tampa Police Department. Assistant Chief Bennett adds, "NC4 SAFECOP leverages successful policing practices with a proven technology platform to put a powerful weapon in the hands of our officers on the streets. What's more, it's simple and easy to use."
NC4 SAFECOP changes the way officers police the streets by bringing them near real time blogging capabilities to discuss incidents as they are unfolding. Instead of relying on roll calls, notepads and meeting takeaways, officers have access to data as it's being updated and can see a graphical representation of incidents with the ability to drill-down for additional data. Police officers can also send out alerts – such as a suspect's description – within seconds. Before, this could take hours, sometimes days to send alerts out to officers on patrol. NC4 SAFECOP provides law enforcement organizations a powerful suite of tools that:
- Centralizes crime-related data into a single data store
- Allows data to be mined more effectively
- Provides increased situational awareness of officers in the field, maximizing their effectiveness
NC4's President and CEO, Jim Montagnino explains, "We listened carefully to our customers and developed the NC4 SAFECOP solution to help solve the problems law enforcement officers face every day. NC4 SAFECOP changes the playing field by providing a top-notch crime-fighting tool that revolutionizes the way cities fight crime."
NC4 will be providing live demonstrations of the NC4 SAFECOP solution at booth 2953. Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor and Assistant Chief of Operations, John Bennett will also be conducting an educational seminar during the conference to showcase how NC4 SAFECOP was used successfully during the RNC to reduce criminal activity.
