BLOOMINGTON, IN, October 29, 2013 — Envisage Technologies, a Bloomington, Indiana-based high-technology firm, announced today that it was awarded a contract by the Wisconsin Department of Justice (WI DOJ). Based on evaluation of competitive bids, WI DOJ chose the Acadis® Readiness Suite to replace its legacy system with a modern, modular software solution. Acadis will be used to manage training and certifications for all active law enforcement officers throughout the state.
“Acadis will allow Wisconsin to maintain legally defensible training and certification records, enabling law enforcement agencies throughout the state to securely report training for their officers,” stated Cory Myers, Vice President of Homeland Security Solutions. “We look forward to implementing Acadis as the authoritative system of record for their compliance processes.”
The system will track training, certifications and employment for 18,000 law enforcement officers throughout the state. Acadis will also be used to track basic training at 21 academies, as well as annual in-service training reporting by nearly 600 law enforcement agencies. In support of the certification process, the system will also store supporting digital documents to ensure officers are in compliance with Wisconsin training policies.
“We are honored to include Wisconsin on our rapidly growing list of State customers. Increasingly, states need ways to simplify public safety compliance paperwork and reduce liability risk,” said Ari Vidali, Envisage CEO. “Our passion is not only helping these states save millions each year, but ensuring that they can provide the highest level of service to their stakeholders.”
