Hampshire Constabulary is trialling a new  fleet location management system in its Netley control room near Southampton.
It will allow control room operators to assign the most appropriate resource to an incident to improve efficiency and reduce officer response times.
The Co-Ordinator 7 system from APD Communications will ensure optimum use of police resources, preventing over deployment of vehicles and officers at incidents, which in turn will lead to an increase in visibility of officers in the community.
It will also provide Hampshire Constabulary’s management team with comprehensive reporting, such as details of where officers have been, vehicle speed, direction of travel and blue light usage. Control room staff can access a range of information from officers on the move via 800 INCA in-vehicle data communications units deployed within the force’s vehicle fleet.
Once fully deployed, the new system will allow multiple maps to be loaded simultaneously helping staff to respond more quickly to incidents. Vehicle journeys can also be replayed at any time to assist with post-incident analysis.
