How can adopting IN FORCE911 help you qualify for this grant? 

The funding of this grant is to provide assistance to improve the functionality of the criminal justice system with more effective information sharing, multiagency collaboration, and implementation of data-driven, evidence-based strategies.

In Force Technology provides a software based platform that is hosted and stored in the Microsoft Azure cloud enabling communications to be sent and received across any credentialed device.  Communications are held to the FBI standard for encryption and security, FIPS 140-2 and are CJIS-5 compliant to run natively on all law enforcement devices including MDT’s, MDC’s and dispatch consoles.  This technology enables multiagency and multi-jurisdictional communication and collaboration that is time and date stamped and provides an exact user identification and a clear understanding of command.  IN FORCE911 enables also consistent and clear details of an incident, intelligence sharing, mission critical details, schematics, protocols and other valuable information to be shared across all platforms and devices, easily accessible when seconds matter most.  The platform also has the ability to provide after action reporting for the future development of strategy based on actual, real-time scenarios and activities.
