01/10/2017 – AIC continues to provide advanced technologies supporting law enforcement and emergency management. Our TACCS installation, along with our ongoing support of the PMCRCN regional collaboration network supports multiple agencies within a region. It is used not only for daily operations but for critical deployments and responses and allows multiple agencies to share a single common operating picture. AIC leads the way in delivering the most advanced technologies communities can deploy as they aim to bring all technologies (cameras, CAD systems, alerts, weather, security sensors, school floor plans, tracking) into one common operating platform.
The following statement was made today in a press release by the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Department;
On the afternoon of January 3, 2017, the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office Special Response Team (SRT) was mobilized to effect an arrest warrant at a residence in Siracusavile for Dorian Kennedy, a suspect in a domestic abuse case who made threatening statements toward the victim and law enforcement officers.
SRT leaders commanded the operation from the Morgan City Harbor and Terminal District’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) utilizing the Touch Assisted Command and Control System (TACCS). Sheriff Mark Hebert says, “The resources provided by the EOC and TACCS aided in the safe and efficient operations of the SRT who were deployed proactively to prevent a crisis situation from developing.”
The St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office is a member of the Port of Morgan City Regional Collaboration Network (PMCRCN) who operates TACCS at the EOC. TACCS pulls data from multiple agencies’ operation systems into one dynamic operating system enabling decision makers to aggregate information, identify adverse conditions, determine and test responsive actions, and monitor the implementation of those actions. End of Release.
TACCS is installed and operated with the Port of Morgan City’s Emergency Operations Center as the Port of Morgan City Regional Collaboration Network (PMCRCN). It connects the following agencies on a single network; St. Mary Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Prepardeness, St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Department, Morgan City Police, US Coast Guard, Port of Morgan City, Berwick Police, St.Mary Levee District and is expanding to include other agencies. It has become a model of regional collaboration and is proven to provide for quicker and more safer responses to incidents.
