These computers give public safety personnel working in the Albemarle County community access to motor vehicle and drivers license information, local criminal history information, warrants and wanted persons checks nationwide, the regional records management system, computer aided dispatch data, fire incident data, and hazardous materials storage locations. In addition, the computers provide reporting templates for completing reports in the vehicle that can be reviewed by supervisors in the field and later uploaded to our records system without additional data entry, voiceless dispatch capability and the ability to share information with other public safety personnel without voice radio transmissions, and the ability to email, plan and communicate with anyone on the mobile data computer system including regional partners and any other public safety agency that may be granted access for homeland security purposes or emergency situations. The system also increases the ability of incident commanders to effectively manage scene operations, resources, and provide up to the second information critical to the decision making process. Of the total amount needed for this project, $1.0 million dollars is from a Homeland Security Grant, with the City, County and University sharing the remainder of the necessary funds. The City’s contribution is $274,084, the University’s $162,081 and the County’s $476,122. The County’s share will come from budgeted funds in the Capital Improvement Program.
