After about four months of configuration and testing, Dickinson PD went “live” with its newest public safety software, Zuercher Technologies, on Tuesday, February 2nd. Zuercher offers a more robust and stable product than the department’s previous vendor. For example, officers and dispatchers are now able to see the exact GPS location of patrol vehicles using Automatic Vehicle Locators (AVLs), which will assist with response time and increase officer safety.
Zuercher Technologies, which is based in Sioux Falls, SD, was the sole bidder for the department’s RFP in 2015. The company has hundreds of law enforcement clients around the country, as well as numerous agencies in North Dakota.
