Fire and police departments are exploring new staffing strategies today to ensure they field the right personnel to keep their communities safe - while working within budget constraints. This can even mean combining hiring authority departments that were previously separate.

A recent example of consolidation in action comes from Rye, New York, where legislators are considering creating a public safety department that will hire and train both firefighters and police officers.

The new approach is meant to help coordination between the two departments' full-time staff, as well as over 200 listed volunteer firefighters.

Officials responsible for managing, scheduling and training personnel from multiple agencies can use public safety workforce management software as a cost effective solution. With software like this, each agency is able to control their own policies, procedures and requirements - all from one centralized platform.

Thanks for watching and check back soon to learn more about how technology is being used to improve public safety management.
