GOLDSBORO, N.C. – Geographic Technologies Group (GTG)
95% of Public Safety Agencies under-utilize computer mapping and GIS.  The reasons are numerous to include:
•    IT and GIS departments don’t know what is needed for Public Safety.
•    Public Safety agencies utilize only the tools provided by their CAD or RMS vendor.  See article in NENA magazine Click Here
•    Many public safety agencies don’t know the power of mapping/GIS and don’t realize all that it can do:
o   Access all critical layers
o   Building pre-plan linking (schools, critical facilities)
o   Feeds from external sources (weather, surveillance cameras)
o   Predictive analysis
 
The bottom line is that GIS for Public Safety has advanced a thousand fold over the past few years but most agencies DON’T FULLY LEVERAGE GIS.  However, that can be easily remedied for your agency.  An organization only needs to a) understand what the technology CAN do and b) understand how to implement the technology.  Our team of local government public safety GIS experts can help your agency at a very nominal cost.  We understand that budgets are tight so we created a Public Safety GIS Health Check that allows your agency to: a) quickly understand what the technology can do for your agency through our “10 Ways to Improve Your Public Safety Seminar” Click Here and b) our GIS Public Safety Health Check Click Here.  We have combined both of these for under $5,000.  This will enable your agency to have a multi-year plan on how you will leverage GIS and all that it offers.  Please contact Andrew Radford at 1-888-757-4222 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it for more information.
