Aventura, Florida Police Department Selects AgencyWeb® for Workforce Management Automation

Dallas, TX (July 14, 2008) – Orion Communications, a provider of Public Safety software, has been contracted by the Aventura, Florida Police Department to deploy its online AgencyWeb® Public Safety Solution. Designed as a comprehensive law enforcement management system, the Aventura Police Department will use AgencyWeb’s personnel, shift, applicant and training modules to automate many aspects of their fast growing personnel requirements.


Aventura has chosen cutting edge technology tools since the beginning of police operations in 1997, so AgencyWeb® is a natural selection. Its uniquely flexible design captures dynamic data that’s constantly moving, tracks all personnel activities in real-time and leverages its data for bottom line reporting.


The new system will include easy-to-use modules that will automate daily law enforcement processes. For example, individual or group call-to-action notifications will be used to inform employees or designated groups when certain events occur … or when routine activities, such as shift changes, training or overtime requests are scheduled to occur.


Training courses will be automatically coordinated with employee shift, court and leave dates. And applicant candidate progressions will be tracked through all stages with the ability to report new hire start dates for academy classes.


As an added benefit, AgencyWeb® will also serve as the focal point for data sharing across some of Aventura’s different technology platforms – such as the new Miami-Dade County e-Notify subpoena system. With AgencyWeb’s ability to synchronize data in real-time with other systems, the Aventura PD will soon be able to leverage data stored in AgencyWeb so it’s entered once and used where and when it is needed.


“We’ve found that law enforcement agencies today typically require different technologies to manage a multitude of informational agency needs,” states Orion President Leslie DeLatte. “The volume of data flow is complex, dynamic and moving continuously in real-time. AgencyWeb® offers unique browser-based solutions that are intrinsically flexible and maximize existing infrastructures. So agencies can fill gaps using specific AgencyWeb modules while leveraging their existing technologies.”


Deployment of the Aventura PD’s AgencyWeb® system began in March, 2008 and is scheduled for completion by Q3.
