The Village of Glencoe Public Safety Department records all response
events related to Public Safety Dispatch within their Computer Aided
Dispatch System. It is important to not only record all events that
occur within the Village but to also review and analyze the data for
optimum response time performance. One key and very important aspect of
analyzing the data involves mapping the data. Mapping is can be used to
help visualize and identify trends within the response records.

The Public Safety Department and the Village of Glencoe GIS
Department both work together to complete the mapping task based on the
collected response records. Key records are categorized, reviewed, and
mapped based on recorded incident and response events. The events are
broken down further to subcategories which included Code One Responses,
all types of reported incidents from the dispatch system, and then a
break down for total number of incidents and responses by reporting
districts. Once the data has is prepared the mapping is completed using
available GIS tools to help automate the process and provided mapping
results which then can be used by the Public Safety Department to assist
in understanding what is occurring within their dispatch responsibility
area.
