Communication Section

Success Through Technology

Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD)

In October of 2001, the Intergraph Public Safety computer aided dispatch (CAD) system was placed online. The field units are plotted on a detailed map and move as their locations are updated through global positioning technology. A benefit of this CAD system is that it allows dispatchers to quickly identify the real location of a field unit that is in trouble. Field units are also equipped with the same map and ability to "see" other units.

800 MHz Radio System

Flagstaff recently transitioned to an 800 MHz digital trunking radio system.
