Pennsylvania Game Commission Deploys InterAct Technology To Improve Safety In The FieldAvaya
InterAct recently announced that its InterAct CAD, InterAct Mobile and InterAct RMS technology solutions have been deployed by the Pennsylvania Game Commission. InterAct’s products will help Pennsylvania Game Commission effectively migrate from a paper based system to a robust and advanced solution which can address the varying needs of state wildlife management at its state wildlife management agency.
By deploying the new system, Pennsylvania Game Commission dispatchers will be able to provide en-route wildlife conservation officers the necessary information while responding to an incident. Using InterAct’s fully integrated CAD and GIS mapping system dispatchers will also be able to monitor and locate an officer’s vehicle, and be able to access en-route travel data as well as aerial photography and geographic data which can enhance the situational awareness of the attending officer.
In a release, Tom Grohol, assistant bureau director for the Pennsylvania Game Commission, said that, “Officer and public safety is the cornerstone of the InterAct system. Our wildlife conservation officers have more intelligence in the field to perform their jobs, and we can monitor them in the field to ensure their safety.”
Responding wardens move into a “watch” status while enforcement activities are being conducted which means both dispatchers and officers can maintain constant communication at all times.
InterAct CSO Terry Turner, said “We are delighted that the Pennsylvania Game Commission selected InterAct after a rigorous evaluation process. We are proud to have built a solution which is truly modern, scalable, and configured to fit the needs of the Pennsylvania Game Commission. InterAct looks forward to working with the commission to assist other state game authorities to take advantage of this new system.”
Sharing and access to all necessary information from the vehicles of the Pennsylvania game commission wardens also becomes easy as their vehicles come equipped with wireless-enabled laptops. The agency also benefits from increased insight into its overall system performance via InterAct’s analytic tools. Tasks such as tracking of call volumes, measuring response times, management of available resources and query call reports can all be easily accomplished.
