Keeping your software and hardware up-to-date is an ever-evolving responsibility. It’s not just about safeguarding against security risks and ensuring the smooth functioning of your technological systems. Rather, it’s about creating a robust technology and infrastructure framework that will sustain your department’s operations into 21st century policing. This requires a comprehensive review and evaluation of your agency’s current and future conditions, needs, and costs related to adopting new technologies and IT infrastructure.
To achieve this, it’s crucial to assess your hardware, software, and technology infrastructure across all relevant areas. This assessment will enable you to identify any gaps, weaknesses, or opportunities for improvement, allowing you to make informed decisions about how to allocate your resources effectively. Ultimately, this will empower your department to stay ahead of the curve, leverage cutting-edge technologies, and deliver top-notch services to the community.
