BOTHELL, Wash -- The Bothell, Wash., Police Department has selected services and Windows-based Aegis/MSP Public Safety software from New World Systems

The department chose Aegis/MSP computer aided dispatch (CAD), records management, mobile computing, field reporting, CAD mapping, state/NCIC, E911, case management and other modules to increase department productivity and help keep the streets safe.

Bothell prepared a joint RFP with the Kirkland Police Department, who recently signed a contract with the company, according to Micki-Donovan-Sved, Support Services Manager for the Bothell Police Department. Once the system is installed, Bothell will share information with Lake Forest Park Police Department, an agency it dispatches for, and in the future with the Kirkland and Medina police departments.

Not only is the Lake Forest Park Police Department dispatched by the Bothell Police Department, but the agency will also share the company's management and mobile computing solutions with Bothell. The departments are looking forward to many new features, such as mapping, integrated mobile and field reporting, reliable and compliant report writing, frequent software updates and more.

The company will train more than 55 officers, 30 dispatchers and 15 civilians on its software suite to enhance services to approximately 46,000 citizens in Bothell and Lake Forest Park.
