November 17, 2009
The Tippecanoe County Sheriff, Tracy Brown, recently hosted Dr. Joe Kielman, Dr. Matt Clark and Dr. Andrew Vallerand during a tour of the county’s Enhanced 911 Communications Center. The distinguished guests were able to see first-hand, the capabilities of the center and its integration with the Sheriff Department’s other law enforcement partners including the Lafayette PD, West Lafayette PD, Purdue University PD and the Indiana State Police. Several computer systems were demonstrated including the Bureau of Motor Vehicle Indiana Data and Communication System, National Crime Information Center, Tippecanoe County Computer-Aided Dispatch, and the Tippecanoe County Records Management System.
Sergeant Dave Murray, Indiana State Police, demonstrated the mobile data communication capabilities that reside within the Indiana State Police Patrol cars. Chief John Cox of the Purdue PD then gave a tour of the Purdue Police Operations Center which included a discussion of the $1.3M video surveillance project being installed on the Purdue Campus. In addition to Sheriff Brown, Sgt Murray and Chief Cox, the DHS representatives and Dr. Vallerand had a candid one-on-one discussion with Chief Don Roush (Lafayette PD), Chief Jason Dombkowski (West Lafayette PD) and U.S. Attorney David Capp. (Graphic courtesy of Tippecanoe County Sheriff Dept.)
