Enterprise GIS Award for Abu Dhabi Police29/03/2012
|The Abu Dhabi Police (ADP) received the prestigious Esri Enterprise GIS Vision Award in recognition of its Esri platform that improves key areas, such as crime prevention, security and emergency management. The award was presented on Tuesday 27 March 2012 at the Esri Partner Conference in Palm Springs, California, USA.|
The annual Esri Partner Conference brings together global partners and distributors to celebrate their efforts and provide them with the environment to develop the strategies and skills that will extend the value of their businesses.
The ADP Esri GIS enhances numerous capabilities. The approach, plans, and designs were benchmarked worldwide with leading law enforcement GIS implementers to ensure that ADP learns from best practices found elsewhere to provide a new standard for future police information systems.
Enterprise GIS services support police business and geo-enable legacy police systems. They help easily find the location of emergency 999 callers, dispatch the nearest responders, and show nearby landmarks like hospitals and critical sites. The agency has dramatically reduced response times and eliminated manual descriptive guidance from the caller. GIS-based maps and analysis also help locate police resources and responders through an automated vehicle location system, allowing command and control (C2) officers to dispatch the nearest responder to the incident location. Responses have become more effective as a consequence of the much improved situational awareness provided to both the C2 officers and police responders. GIS is also used to provide a common operating picture with real-time data mapping related to the decision maker's jurisdiction.
