CHICAGO, May 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – SceneDoc, public safety’s first all-in-one mobile software for data collection and retrieval, today announces the addition of former Superintendent of Chicago Police Department Garry McCarthy to its Executive Advisory Council (EAC). Spearheaded by SceneDoc Chairman and CEO Alex Kottoor, the EAC serves to provide industry insight, validate product ideas, and help evolve public safety with the use of the SceneDoc mobile software platform.
“Superintendent McCarthy has had a spectacular career working in some of the most difficult and challenging environments in the country, consistently reducing crime rates at every stop he’s made. He is a policeman’s policeman, and fully understands the unique challenges faced by front line officers, supervisors, and executive leadership. We look forward leveraging his experience and expertise as we continue to become the standard in how data is being collected in public safety,” said Kottoor.
McCarthy brings 35 years of experience in major city law enforcement, most recently serving as Superintendent of the Chicago Police Department from 2011-2015. Previously he served as Director for Newark Police Department from 2006-2011, under his watch seeing a reduction in murder rates, improvements in efficiency and professionalism, including a 17 percent increase in arrests. Prior to that, he held the rank of Deputy Commissioner of Operations for the New York Police Department, overseeing a reduction in homicide rates while again demonstrating strong leadership as a supervisor while commanding three separate precincts during a five year period and bringing about significant and positive change.
“Technologies like SceneDoc create real opportunities for police to become far more efficient. And it starts with gathering more and better dots; information is king and critical to intelligence and proactive policing. I have always been a believer that our officers on the front line need access to technology that can help streamline paperwork without the need for laptops and driving back to the station. This by the way becomes the enabler to community-based policing and directed patrol strategies,” said McCarthy.
SceneDoc is public safety’s first all-in-one mobile software for data collection and retrieval. By modernizing with SceneDoc, agencies operate with higher levels of clarity and control, with fewer moving parts, capturing data and reporting at the point of need. SceneDoc is saving agencies an hour of paperwork per shift on average, resulting in less time reporting and more time in the community so officers can do what they do best. Agencies can share information and collaborate in near real-time, from any internet connected device, so potentially lifesaving intelligence is only a tap away.
