Using GIS In Your Job

WTH has over 20 years of experience in providing GIS services for local law enforcement and public safety response. 

Some benefits of using GIS in your Work:

  • Better performance in responding to emergency events
  • The ability to record events in real time and share this information with 911 dispatch, first responders and public officials.
  • The ability to create preplans for schools, businesses, high-risk facilities, and large planned events such as fairs and festivals.
  • The ability to track vehicles while on patrol or responding to an event.

WTH uses locally available Aerial Photography and the best local GIS data – WTH builds maps for Police Departments that include the most accurate and currently available County and State aerial photography and local GIS layers rather than rely on generic national map. 

Experienced 911 GIS technical support – WTH has a service support staff that averages over 18 years of GIS technical experience.  We know that a local law enforcement agency operates 24/7 under stressful conditions.  WTH is part of your team to maintain your GIS system at all times and under the worst of conditions.

GIS Software System Design – Each community has its own unique public safety priorities and the kinds of events that it must prepare for. WTH support staff are prepared to work with local law enforcement agencies to select the best mix of software for their unique needs.  WTH can assist in developing relevant GIS layers and preplans and provide advice on integrating GIS software with computer and receiver hardware.
