Public Safety Media Blotter - Real-Time Incident Alerts
Keeping the general public informed is just one of the responsibilities of being a Public Safety Information Officer (PIO). Having access to a reporting tool that is quick, convenient, and easy to use, is very important.
Just imagine the time it takes to handwrite on-scene incident information, go back to a PC at your office, and type an email to send to various media groups and contacts. To solve the problem our team worked with Public Safety to create an easily accessible blotter for current incident information generated by a PIO.
Now the PIO just posts the incident information in the blotter and sends a link to the media groups in real-time. The blotter is updated automatically every 60 seconds in the event a PIO adds a new incident or updates a current incident. When an incident occurs, a "blot" can be created in the office or on-scene. The platform is mobile-friendly so it can be accessed on any device that uses a browser and has an internet connection.
The positive impact on the city and the Public Safety Information officers, in particular, is significant. The time that is saved by the PIO is incredible and not easily measured.
