Nearly 30 public-safety agencies in Monmouth County, N.J., are adopting a shared software system from Spillman Technologies for dispatching, records-management, mobile data computing, field reporting, investigations and more.

The multi-jurisdictional data-sharing system was created as part of a major Monmouth County initiative to increase efficiency and reduce operating costs by consolidating public-safety services.

The Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office also plans to use Spillman’s computer-aided dispatching software at a state-of-the-art communications center under construction in Freehold. With 50 dispatch positions, the facility will be the largest of its kind in the state and will consolidate dispatch services for agencies throughout Monmouth County.

The agencies are beginning implementation this month and plan to go live with the Spillman system in October 2012.
