BLOOMINGTON, IN, July 23, 2013 – Envisage Technologies, a Bloomington, Indiana-based high-technology firm, announced today that it was awarded a contract by the Alaska Police Standards Council (APSC). Based on evaluation of competitive bids, APSC chose the Acadis® Readiness Suite to replace its legacy training and compliance management system.
“We are pleased to add Alaska as the 7th state to use Acadis as the authoritative system of record for their law enforcement officers,” stated Cory Myers, Vice President of Homeland Security Solutions. “Acadis will allow the state to maintain secure, legally defensible training and certification records for this high liability industry, while automating compliance reporting.”
The system will be used to track approximately 8,000 law enforcement officers and 60 law enforcement agencies throughout the state. This includes basic and in-service training records, as well as digitally storing supporting documents to ensure each officer is in compliance with Alaska’s training policies.
“Our plan is to implement the Acadis Readiness Suite to track training, certification compliance and documents at APSC in the first year, then roll out the Acadis Portal to our constituent agencies next year,” said Kelly Alzaharna, Executive Director. “This allows us to methodically implement an enterprise software system and support officers and agencies throughout Alaska in the certification process.”
“Once fully implemented, Acadis will create a compliance ecosystem that will link the Council, training academies, departments and officers, enabling them to share information across the vast state of Alaska at significant cost savings,” said Ari Vidali, Envisage CEO. “We look forward to welcoming the APSC into our rapidly growing community of leading law enforcement organizations around the Country.”
