Salt Lake City, UT—June 1, 2006— We wish to announce the successful release of the PDS Police v3.0 protocol in our newly updated versions of dispatch cardsets, ProQA software, support products and certification training. The update is now being distribution to our ESP user along with the v3 update guide, and is available to new clients.

This newest revision of the police protocols:

  • Facilitates earlier dispatch 
  • Restructures the protocols to more closely follow typical police calltaking models and processes 
  • Simplifies, and speeds-up case entry 
  • Streamlines logic 
  • Retains the ability of Police ProQA to work interchangeably with the Fire and Medical ProQA on most phone and CAD systems (see our integrated CAD list) 

“These improvements will help communications centers increase responsiveness to police 911 calls, while ensuring that all the important data is collected to determine appropriate responses, and ensure the safety of field responders and citizens.” Said Charlotte Olsen, Associate Director of the National Academies of Emergency Dispatch.
