New training solution will serve over 30,000 criminal justice personnel in the Commonwealth
BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA – Envisage Technologies, a technology firm based in Bloomington, Indiana, announced today that it was chosen by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ Municipal Police Training Committee—the professional training standards oversight body for more than 30,000 criminal justice personnel in the Commonwealth—to implement the Acadis® Readiness Suite to replace its legacy training and learning management system. The Acadis Readiness Suite is Envisage’s cloud-based training and compliance solution purpose-built for public safety professionals. With over 1.1 million first responders and 8,600 departments, Acadis is the preeminent training and compliance software within the field of policing.
The Acadis Readiness Suite will be used by Massachusetts to automate training operations, including curriculum development, scheduling, registration, and testing. Additionally, Acadis will allow the Commonwealth to track the career training, compliance, and certification records for new municipal, University of Massachusetts, and Environmental Police officers as well as veteran members of the force. The statewide system will connect all police departments, and will allow police agencies to report officer training and employment, register officers for courses, and renew certifications in a highly-secure cloud-based framework. Acadis will support the entire hire-to-retire lifecycle to ensure that each officer remains in compliance with all certification requirements.
“Our goal is to create a system that streamlines officers’ access to training and provides the Commonwealth and departments a secure repository for tracking training and certifications,” offered Dan Zivkovich, the executive director of the Municipal Police Training Committee.
“We are deeply honored to have been selected to update the Commonwealth’s training and compliance process,” said Ari Vidali, Envisage CEO. “Many states are realizing the significant cost savings and benefits of creating a public safety ecosystem that not only simplifies compliance reporting but also enables tighter integration of all stakeholders.”
