6.      Consider a Proposal to upgrade the computer system to

include adding mobile data terminals

 

SUMMARY AND BACKGROUND: The Police Department has used Sungard, Inc. Record Management and Computer-aided Dispatch systems since 1991. This platform has proven to be a reliable and stable structure for seventeen years. However, there have been many upgrades that we have not been able to take advantage of due to the hardware limitations, thereby making the system obsolete. The current operating software is green screen technology and Sungard has submitted a proposal with Windows based technology which will enhance our efficiency and increase the productivity and flow of important information to and from the field. It is my recommendation to pursue this system upgrade as soon as approval is obtained.
