Richmond Implements Ordia Solutions for Incident Response and Routine Police Operations.

First Major City Police Department in Northeast to Deploy Next-Generation Tactical Command and Control System to Shorten Response Time, Gain Geospatial Insights of Crime Trends, and Enhance Officer Safety

RICHMOND, Va. & VIENNA, Va. -- Ordia Solutions, the leading provider of tactical command and control systems for first responders and their chain of command, announces the successful deployment by the Richmond Police Department (RPD) of Ordia Solutions' next-generation Mobile Tactical Collaboration System[TM] (MTCS) and AdvanTraq[TM] GPS to enhance police operations. The system will be used for a variety of functions from critical incident response, major events security and critical infrastructure protection, to routine patrol operations and weekly briefings on crime trends throughout the city.

In addition to supplying the collaborative command and control software and personnel GPS trackers, Ordia Solutions will provide the Department with training, support, system customization, and additional services to integrate MTCS with existing technologies including Intergraph[R] CAD and AVL systems. "Knowing the real-time location of our officers in relation to an operation, incident site, support elements, and each other is of immense benefit to the chain of command and officer safety," said David M. McCoy, Interim Chief, Richmond Police. "The Ordia Solutions technology has given the Department a force-multiplier advantage during the planning and execution of a major incident response or routine police operation."

Because the MTCS tactical command and control system is Web-based and inherently interoperable, RPD is leading an effort to bring other local, state, and federal law enforcement jurisdictions, as well as Fire and EMS services in the Richmond area, to be part of a regional mutual aid consortium using MTCS, for those public safety operations where a regional, all-hazard, coordinated, and timely response is essential. "The Richmond Police Department has had a rich history of aggressively exploiting innovative technologies and processes to enhance its community policing mission," said Joe E. Ordia, Chairman and CEO, Ordia Solutions. "This MTCS deployment demonstrates that RPD will continue to lead its peers around the nation in delivering a safer city for its residents and visitors."
