Henderson Adopts Integrated Digital Justice Solution

System streamlining information sharing for Nevada city.

by / December 11, 2003
HENDERSON, Nev. -- Henderson, Nev., needed a way to share information among the city's various departments. The city has a population of 223,000 and a 190 percent growth rate in the last decade. Henderson is responsible for processing an average of 3,000 to 4,000 criminal fingerprint submissions and 12,000 bookings per year.

The city has selected integrated digital justice software from Motorola, including computer aided dispatch, records management, corrections management, automated fingerprint/palmprint identification (AFIS), livescan and mugshot technologies.

Henderson's integrated information network includes the city's police and fire departments, the municipal courts and the City Attorney's office. The system includes Omnitrak AFIS/Palmprint Identification Technology, which is the first operational palmprint system in Nevada.

With over 250,000 calls for service per year it was imperative that Henderson be able to implement a system that could adjust to its growing population and increasing call volumes. Henderson agencies are now able to work from the same incident data and dispatchers will immediately know what resources have been committed. This is especially valuable during major events that require a multi-agency response.
