Richmond Capitol Police Deploy New Public-Safety Software
Tuesday, August 28, 2018 | Comments

The Division of Capitol Police in Richmond, Virginia, deployed Tyler Technologies’ New World public-safety solutions. The agency is now using a full suite including CAD, law enforcement records management system (RMS), mobile and decision support software.

Tyler replaced an outdated public-safety system that the agency had been using since 1999 with its New World software. Capitol Police’s main objective with the implementation was to increase situational awareness for its staff, which includes more than 70 police officers.

“Our community is very diverse and spread out, and we’re excited to have these public-safety solutions increasing safety for everyone from college students to state employees and state legislators,” said Col. Anthony S. Pike, chief of the Division of Capitol Police. “Our agency is always looking for ways to be more progressive with our technology, and Tyler’s solutions are enabling better communication, real-time updates from the field and more accurate records.”

Capitol Police is regarded as the first organized policing agency in the United States. The agency provides progressive law enforcement for Virginia’s State Capitol Complex, as well as protective services and details for Virginia’s governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, Virginia’s Supreme Court justices and Virginia’s legislators.

Richmond is the capital of Virginia and is among America’s oldest cities. It has a population of more than 200,000.
