BLOOMINGTON, IN, January 16, 2014 — Envisage Technologies, a Bloomington, Indiana-based high-technology firm, announced today that it was awarded a contract by the Colorado Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST). Based on evaluation of competitive bids, Colorado POST chose the Acadis® Readiness Suite to replace its legacy system with a modern, modular software solution.
POST will implement Acadis to record training, administer tests, and manage certifications for all active law enforcement officers throughout the state. Further, the Acadis Portal will provide a vehicle to Colorado’s law enforcement agencies to report in-service training, to register officers for certification exams, and to manage employment and compliance information for their officers.
“Acadis is a game changer for us. It streamlines training, testing, and certification processes, creating almost instant access to compliance information for all certified officers in Colorado,” state Pete Dunbar, Director of Colorado POST. “The Acadis Portal improves POST’s relationship with law enforcement agencies and officers, as it provides confidential information regarding real-time training, certification and employment.”
The system will track training, certifications and employment for 18,000 law enforcement officers throughout the state, as well as annual in-service training reporting by nearly 300 law enforcement agencies. This system will also be the vehicle for the online POST certification exam. “Acadis will provide accurate information to Colorado’s law enforcement agencies about their officers training and certification status,” stated Cory Myers, Vice President of Homeland Security Solutions. “We are pleased to add Colorado as our 11th state customer.
"Colorado joins 10 other state POST agencies that are reaping the benefits of a compliance ecosystem," said Ari Vidali Envisage Founder & CEO. "Digitizing the process enables stakeholders to measure readiness and better defend their officers against litigation."
