Importance of GIS in dispatch systems

​Police, Fire, and EMS dispatch plays a very important and crucial
role for any State, County, City, or Village; and any Dispatcher, Police
officer, Firemen, or EMT will tell you that timing and accurate
information is everything. The Village of Glenview utilizes Geography
Information Systems (GIS) by integrating GIS data into their New World
Systems (software mapping applications) for accurate computer aided
dispatch. GIS and NWS give dispatchers the ability to supply all Police,
Fire, and EMS with the most up to date address locations.

Before GIS; Police, Fire, EMS, and Dispatch had to rely heavily on
paper maps (or no maps at all) which were not 100% accurate and in some
cases hand drawn. Now, by using the power of Geography Information
Systems and New World Systems Police Officers, Firemen, EMT, and
Dispatchers are able to respond to calls much faster and more
effectively, which in return saves time (it would take to loop up the
address) and money (gas and loss productivity.)

In conclusion, as States, Counties, CitiesVillages grow so does the
demand for Police, Fire, and EMS along with the demand for accurate data
and mapping. Not only does GIS allow for this to happen, it can also
assist with decision making on critical cost saving issues.
