May/June 2014 • SECURITY TECHNOLOGY EXECUTIVE 23 on best practices and organiza- tional policies and tools to resolve situations faster, smarter and more cost-effectively. By eliminating the guess work, the city can quickly – and appropriately – identify poten- tial threatening situations and ensure safe, effective responses, reducing costly errors. The city is actively working to utilize the PSIM software state- wide. Growing on the successful City of Baltimore deployment, the State of Maryland is in the process of updating its CAD 911 system to enable a massive effort that inte- grates platforms statewide onto a single platform. The integration will use the VidSys PSIM software to streamline information into one common operating picture for use by more than 50 different agencies (e.g. State Highway, hos- pitals, Stadium Authority, helicop- ter patrol fleet, etc.). This will allow operators across the State to work seamlessly, know- ing when, where, and how best to respond to any given situation by leveraging real-time intelligence and data sharing. In summary, the city of Balti- more is a leader in innovation, city management and public safety response -- and is at the forefront of the connected cities vision, thanks to the adoption of innova- tive technologies. This encour- ages interagenc y cooperation, while leveraging existing assets, to deliver unified command and control that reduces costs, while improving response times and visibility of city services. Ultimately, this all increases the efficiency of the city while making it more safe and secure for residents, visitors and businesses. ❚ Lt. Sam Hood heads up the Baltimore Citiwatch program, which ranks among the country's most sophisticated public/private partnership initiatives.
