REGINA, Saskatchewan -- The Regina, Saskatchewan, Police Service (RPS) needed a state-of-the-art incident management system that would improve efficiency, effectiveness and the quality of operations while improving services to the public.

Regina chose Intergraph Public Safety to provide a fully integrated computer aided dispatch, police records management, automated field reporting and mobile data computing solution. Regina is the capital of the province of Saskatchewan, Canada with a population of 190,000 covering 110 square kilometers. RPS currently responds to about 71,000 calls for service yearly.

The system will provide a single point of data entry, removing redundancy and duplication of effort, and will improve access to both internal and external systems, such as the Canadian Police Information Center .

Field officers will be able to access arrest records and mug shots, or see where hazardous chemicals are stored in a burning building. Field personnel can file reports without returning to their offices, therefore allowing more time on the streets supporting community-oriented policing efforts.
