Acadis will streamline management of training, certifications, and employment for the state’s law enforcement officers.
BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA – Bloomington-based Envisage Technologies, the leading provider of law enforcement and public safety training and compliance solutions, announced today that the Wyoming Peace Officer Standards and Training Commission (POST) and Law Enforcement Academy has awarded them a contract for the Acadis® Readiness Suite. This will support legally defensible training and certification records for their 4,000 sworn law enforcement officers.
POST will utilize Acadis to streamline the management and tracking of training, certifications, and employment for the state’s sworn law enforcement officers, while the Academy will use Acadis to automate academy operations including scheduling, course registration, housing, and testing. Law Enforcement agencies throughout Wyoming will manage online registration and in-service training reporting via the Acadis Portal.
Acadis will support the entire hire-to-retire lifecycle to ensure that each officer remains in compliance with all certification requirements. The use of Acadis is expected to result in significant cost savings for the State of Wyoming as it will allow for the transition to a digital record-keeping system and further streamline the technical relationship between POST, Academy, and agencies.
“We are excited to work with Envisage on this project. One of the main reasons we went with Envisage is their experience in working with other Peace Officer Standard and Training offices across the Nation,” stated Len DeClercq, Director of the Wyoming POST. “We are looking for a web-based system to help streamline our process, not only for ourselves, but for our clients across Wyoming and I feel the Acadis Readiness suite will help us do this.”
“We’re excited as we move forward with our sister agency in the implementation of a software system that should prove to very beneficial not only to our daily operations but to those law enforcement agencies and the officers that we serve,” added David Harris, Director of the Wyoming Law Enforcement Academy.
“We look forward to assisting the Wyoming POST, Academy, and law enforcement agencies with their move to a more paperless strategy for law enforcement information,” said Cory Myers, Envisage Vice President of Homeland Security Solutions. “Acadis will help streamline the operations and sharing of information between these groups, as well as reduce the costs of printing, mailing, and storage of documents.”
Wyoming is the fifteenth state POST organization to adopt the Acadis solution as their statewide system of record for law enforcement.
