YouWorkForce POLICE: patrol management program
The many features of YouWorkForce are optimally suited to the police force management environment, which requires the utmost attention and coordination between barracks and officers to ensure security and peace of mind for citizens. YouWorkForce focuses on the officers in order to allow them to carry out their activities in the best possible way and to be rescued in a timely manner in case of hazard.
This is not a common employment, but a work that involves the whole community and therefore needs suitable and innovative tools: this is why YouCo, within its successful cases, can also boast a strong collaboration with a Local Police Consortium, as the developer of a special program for managing patrols.
The client of YouCo is a Local Police Consortium, which includes the police supervision of 4 municipalities in the province of Vicenza. In this context, more than 30 officers are involved in road and traffic police, judicial police, public safety, traffic education and litigation management. All of this on a territory of 50,000 inhabitants. Precisely because of such a large population and a series of interventions to be carried out mainly outdoors, the consortium decided to turn to YouCo: the purpose was to improve the effectiveness of communication between the officers on the territory and the central barracks, in order to be able to monitor in an optimal way everything concerning this difficult and rewarding work.
How did the the Local Police activity improve thanks to YouWorkForce?
First of all, YouWorkForce brought into the barracks and among the officers lots of news: an electronic agenda, to be updated in an intuitive way and in real time, to better manage every single activity that the thirty or so officers carry out every day. The geo-localized clocking in/out, ideal for opening and closing shifts without necessarily going to the barracks, avoids loss of time and speeds up interventions. Directly from the officer’s smart-phone it is also possible to create a program for managing the patrols, with the so called “attendance book”: the agent can request permits / holidays and the shift change with a simple “tap” of the finger! In the same way, the Planning&Control service of YouWorkForce allows the operational center to constantly count the hours and to coordinate the many services provided on the territory.
In order to use cutting-edge tools to facilitate officers’ work, traditional radio frequency communications are efficiently replaced by YouTalkie. Thanks to this tool, the outdoor officers can stay in contact with the operational center and send alerts and communications according to the activity they are carrying out.
In order to make the officer’s work as safe as possible, YouCo equipped the Local Police Consortium with the “Man Down” functionality. In case of emergency, the officer’s device can detect falls, injuries and accidents and send a signal to the operational center. This allowed the officers to carry out their safe activities in a more relaxed manner, since, for any issue, they would have been able to rely on innovative tools, able to promptly alert the barracks in case of hazard or need.
