Fresno Police launch new dispatch system to help officers respond faster

FRESNO, California (KFSN) – A new high-tech tool will help the Fresno Police Department respond to emergency calls.

Fresno police released the new and improved computer-aided delivery system or “CAD” late last month.

Designed for the last four years in collaboration with the company AXON.

Fresno Police Chief Paco Balderama says the system provides real-time mapping for dispatchers and officers.

They can respond faster with security in mind and police officers can go to a scene more prepared.

“If there is a lot of white noise, the officers do not really know what they are responding to, so this will help us understand this information all the time it takes for a person to call a phone and an officer to get there,” said the captain. of Fresno Police, Don Gross.

Police say Fresno has an average of 1,100,911 calls a day and thousands of non-emergency calls.

At any time, information may need to be sent to more than 750 officers and a few hundred city officials.

The old system worked for more than 20 years.

The chief said they have already seen success with the system being the first of its kind.

“We are the first city in the world to launch AXON CAD and we are very proud of that. We have something at the forefront that is the highest quality in technology,” said Balderrama.
