Police v5.0

Priority Dispatch Corp. (PDC) is proud to introduce the Police Priority Dispatch System (PPDS) v5.0 developed by the International Academies of Emergency Dispatch (IAED) that officially launched in May at NAVIGATOR 2015!

Version 5 is built upon the speed and precision of each preceding version to enhance the ability of emergency police dispatchers (EPDs) to gather the most appropriate and accurate information for their field responders.

PPDS is supported by ProQA Paramount v5.1.

Updates and enhancements

  • A new ECHO-level Determinant Descriptor (124-E-1) added for OFFICER DOWN situations are defined as “an emergency situation, discovered during Case Entry, where the life of the officer is at stake.
  • Protocols 108 and 109 are modified to address PRODUCT CONTAMINATION situations (PRODUCT CONTAMINATION with 108 and PRODUCT CONTAMINATION THREAT with 109). They have new definitions, and unique Determinant Descriptors and Key Questions.
  • A new definition for SPECIAL LOCATION has been added to Protocol 123. 
  • Blue prompts for obtaining weapons/person/vehicle descriptions have been replaced with scripted statements to help the EPD retain control of the call.
  • Improved instructions for Sinking Vehicle and Vehicle in Floodwater situations. 

“ProQA is the software engineered specifically for the Academy’s protocol,” said Tom Knorr, PDC Director of Software Development and Quality Assurance. “The functions remove any guesswork and keep your EPDs focused on what matters most: secure and efficient police response in a mobile environment.”
