Taylor, TX

The Taylor, Texas Police Department is a 44 member (30 sworn) agency serving a city of about 17,000 residents in Central Texas. We are located on Highways 79 and 95, about 25 miles northeast of Austin. We have a values based organization that seeks to provide the highest level of service possible to our community through problem solving and law enforcement.

After having served on several committees in other agencies in search of decent public safety software, I've learned a few things: 1) most of the software doesn't do what the vendor says it will (we call it "vapor-where"; 2) much of the software out there that does work is far too expensive for most small to medium sized agencies; 3) many public safety software packages have extremely limited search capabilites.

The Taylor Police Department is the second agency where I have implemented Crimesoft. The support from this company has been outstanding! Crimesoft is affordable, efficient, easily networkable with an extremely intuitive user interface. Better yet: it works and works well! Hey, show me a software package from a major vendor where you can search all of the narratives in your database in a matter of seconds! Show me another software package where you can easily import and export reports from laptops! Show me another software package where you can easily export call data to a map!

It's a lot of fun to see the look on the faces of representatives from other police departments (after they've invested their hundreds of thousands of dollars) after demonstrating Crimesoft for them. I can't resist asking,"So, does your software do this?!" Invariably Crimesoft functionally outperforms the "big boys"!

Don't believe me? Try it out yourself or give me a call. Better yet, stop by if you're in the area. I'll be glad to show you what you're missing!
