The Decatur Police Department has joined the other departments of the City in adopting cloud computing. The change in technology roughly coincides with the return of the police to the Beacon Municipal Center.
The technology changeover went smoothly with no disruptions to dispatching or other emergency services. Based on consultations between VC3 (the City’s cloud and technology provider), the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, and the Decatur Police Department, Decatur’s network remains compliant with criminal justice information services (CJIS) standards.
The cloud expansion demonstrates Decatur’s commitment to innovation and to providing employees with the most efficient tools for staff to work effectively. Internal surveys indicate that 71 percent of City employees are somewhat or very satisfied with our cloud—they rate the best aspect of our cloud as the ability to “work from anywhere” whether at their desk or on-the-go from a mobile device.
