Efficiency of automated CAD integrations

Tellus enabled law enforcement across 3 departments to quickly set up a command post and coordinate communications. The efficiency of the automated CAD integrations, combined with mobile devices in the field, gave police commanders the situational awareness that enabled them to deploy resources and ultimately catch their suspect.

“Knowledge is power and we can never have too much knowledge to do our jobs,” said Lt. Scott Graham, of the Brentwood Police Department in Brentwood, TN. “There are too many unknowns out there anyway so every little bit that we can have that brings us closer and gives us more communications with one another the better off we are.”
