The Saxon State Ministry of the Interior, Germany, selected Intergraph integrated public safety and security solutions to amplify the ministry's incident prevention and response efforts. Intergraph's incident management, reporting and analysis solutions will enable Saxony Police Force's 13 control centers and other government agencies to improve response coordination through increased operational interoperability and information sharing. Intergraph will implement a high-performance computer-aided dispatch (CAD) system and a statewide emergency operations center (EOC) solution with full integration of digital radio communications.

The law enforcement personnel throughout the 18,415-square kilometer German state will leverage real-time actionable information derived from the Intergraph incident management and business intelligence technologies to protect the 4 million residents in Saxony. Intergraph is the world leader in public safety and security incident response management solutions.

Intergraph technologies will enable the personnel of the Saxony Police Force to field calls, create and update incidents and manage critical resources from a single interface, significantly improving emergency response times. Through the system's geospatial information system (GIS)-map display and queued incident alarms, the solution can recommend resources based on relevant factors including incident and vehicle location, drive time, unit type and officer skill and availability. Intergraph's business intelligence technology is a public safety solution that allows Saxony personnel to access real-time operational data created by CAD, records and other databases to gain further insights for investigations and planning, manage performance and generate reports for enhanced decision-making.

In addition, Intergraph will deliver a Web-based EOC module to provide a common operational picture for executing management functions and operational decisions during an emergency. The module will present a single source of information alongside standard dispatch workflows and will allow for alerting, user and rights management, workflow management, event logging, and the ability to visualize and analyze spatial (GIS) data.

Intergraph's public safety solutions will be integrated into the Saxony Police Force's Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA) digital communications system. The enabled data sharing through digital radio will promote interoperability. In addition, Intergraph solutions will be incorporated into Saxony's spatial data infrastructure (SDI). Thus, the Saxony Police will be part of the seamless data transfer and information sharing between government agencies. Integrating Intergraph's solutions into SDI will enhance crisis management, emergency management efforts and provide support for a broad range of emergency prevention and response operations.

“For public safety and security organizations seeking world-class technologies to streamline incident response and prevention efforts, Intergraph remains the market leader and the only provider to deliver an advanced CAD solution with business intelligence capabilities,” said John Graham, President, Intergraph Security, Government & Infrastructure. “With the implementation of this system, the Saxony Police Force joins more than 2,500 other agencies around the world that rely on Intergraph's public safety and security solutions to protect and respond to critical incidents for the safety and well being of the citizens.”
