Chippewa County says the system helps create efficiencies through these items:

Centralized Application and Equipment
• One application is maintained in a central location instead of individual applications at each agency.
• One central set of equipment is used to host the application, instead of individual agencies providing equipment to host their own system.

Shared Records
• Person, citation, warrant, arrest, vehicle and incident records are stored in a central system that is maintained by the county.
• Law enforcement is able to collaborate and view records in a single system, instead of having to individually access records at each agency.
• Data is backed up and stored for all agencies, for quick recovery if needed.

Remotely Accessible Records
• Real time information is accessible in the application to officers within their vehicles, helping officers quickly assess situations.
• Records can be entered into the system without having to physically be at an agency’s office.

CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) -- A local government is running new software to help officers work more efficiently.

Chippewa County started using TAC10 Software in late February. It lets officers access a central database that has shared law enforcement records. Dispatch can also use it to communicate with officers. It utilizes a Virtual Private Network connection that an officer reaches through an existing internet connection. Officers can connect to the network at a law enforcement building or a squad car.

The county says the software will save time for officers and make law enforcement safer. Lake Hallie police applied for a grant that eventually provided the initial funding for the project.
