Our recommendations are objective, and carefully consider each client’s requirements and budget.

Knowing what you need
Having worked with public safety agencies worldwide, Sciens understands the entire process from the time the call is initiated at dispatch through adjudication. We work with law and court staff members to assess each step of the justice process and identify opportunities for improvement.
Central to this vision are unified records management, reliable communications systems, and robust mobile technologies. Once the right solutions are in place, actionable information can be delivered quickly to the field, when it’s needed most to protect first responders.
Police, fire and EMS personnel today are maximizing their ability to spend more time in the field by moving tasks historically conducted in the office into the patrol car, fire truck, and ambulance. Better mobility reduces the potential for erroneous information that may jeopardize citizen or officer safety.
Professional guidance on technology investments
Dispatch centers require highly integrated NG911 and radio communications systems. Using the right technologies ensures that calls are received, processed and assigned without delay. The speed of dispatch call handling is an often-cited metric for the performance of dispatch centers.
Records management systems and mobility technologies are the cornerstone of workforce automation and information sharing. The best mobile technologies improve field efficiency, and analytics after the event for accurate investigations.
Helping assess & implement practical solutions
Our teams understand the law enforcement process, as well as how information is transferred to the courts. A seamless process from booking to court appearances is key to reducing redundant efforts and operational costs. Our experienced consultants offer insight into optimal processes and technology use. Automation solutions can expedite work flow between investigations and the District Attorney’s Office through digital case records.
Managing jail occupancy efficiently enables people to move through the system faster, which reduces maintenance costs, and limits potential security breaches. In the end, everyone benefits from swift, expeditious justice.
