Sheriff's Department looks for best option


Fri, Oct 29th, 2010
Posted in Government



The county board at their October 26 meeting decided to go back to committee before going ahead with the pilot program in Spring Valley using the State's I-Mobile System. Sheriff Daryl Jensen recommended that they go back to the Jail Committee to look at their options and do some more checking before making a decision.

At first glance it would look like it would be a good deal for the county. Jensen said the deputies in squad cars access data through a dispatcher the same as they did several decades ago. The Minnesota State Patrol is literally giving their used second generation hardware including computer tough books and mounts to local governments at no cost.

Deputy Kevin Beck said there is no cost involved for the hardware worth about $3,500 for each computer and $900 for each mounting device. The city of Spring Valley was considering doing a pilot program, but is concerned about other added costs. A software license will cost $1,000 per user on line for up to three computers, software maintenance will cost an additional $200 per user, and then there will be the cost of air cards to make the system work right. Beck said nothing has been budgeted for air cards.

Beck said they don't want to loose the window of opportunity for the free hardware, but the funding of the air cards is a problem. Jensen expects the Spring Valley City Council will discuss the funding issue. Commissioner Tom Kaase said the mobile data is a huge asset with the access to information when an officer pulls someone over.

Both Commissioners Randy Dahl and Chuck Amunrud liked the idea of a test case to see if the technology should be instituted county wide. Jensen added that if Spring Valley decided not to go ahead with the pilot project maybe the county should.

Jensen cautioned the board that they should consider whether it is prudent to jump into the State's I-Mobile System or wait and use funds toward a new record management system which could tie in county information and eliminate redundancy. He noted that the county will need the mounting devices down the road.

Jensen said they could answer some of the questions in Jail Committee in the next week or so. He said they are not ready to move forward yet. The dilemma is if they wait too long they could loose the availability of the free hardware, but they may not need it if they go with the new Record Management System (RMS). He was concerned about money that could be spent to .....
