BJA FY 2012

Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program

Local Solicitation

The Town of Hamden (Hamden Police Department) is seeking to become a
CALEA (Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies) certified Law Enforcement Agency. The CALEA Accreditation Process is a proven modern management model; once implemented, it presents the Chief Executive Officer (CEO/Chief of Police), on a continuing basis, with a blueprint that promotes the efficient use of resources and improves service delivery–regardless  of the size, geographic location, or functional responsibilities of the agency. The Law Enforcement Accreditation Program was the first credentialing program established by CALEA  after its founding. It was originally developed to address what was seen as a need to enhance law enforcement  as a profession and to improve law enforcement service delivery. That mission continues today through a tiered law enforcement accreditation program. This accreditation program provides public safety agencies an opportunity to voluntarily demonstrate that they meet an established set of professional standards.  

 

 Hamden Police have incorporated a new data management and distribution system called Powerdms.  This will enhance and enable our ability to keep our staff up to date with policy issues (so important this day and age), procedures, training material, compliance and electronic document disemmination.  The system allows for up, down and lateral document communications and the creation of fact-finding surveys.

The following is an excerpt from the company.

About PowerDMS:
PowerDMS™ Suite, from Innovative Data Solutions (IDS), could be the answer to these problems and more, with a completely paperless police department policy environment. Opt for a law enforcement education system that considers time precious, wallets limited, and employee certifications necessary. Use virtual law enforcement tests to rest easy knowing your employees fully comprehend policies, and receive rich employee feedback using our police survey tools. It really is that simple.
