JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Several law enforcement and 911 dispatch employees are getting crime center information system training this week.  

The system is the database that all law enforcement and 911 dispatchers use to communicate information.

“It is the database that law enforcement use on daily basis to run tags, car tags, VIN number, driver licenses numbers,” E-911 Director Jeff Presley said.

Presley said knowing this database and being trained to use it is essential.

“This is a major tool that we use several hundred times a day so to be on this system you have to be certified,” Presley said.

Jonesboro is hosting the training so those training in Northeast Arkansas can save money and stay close to home.

“A few years ago we realized the money it was costing us to send personnel down to Little Rock for three or four times with housing and food and things like that. Plus they were out of our center if we needed help,” Presley said.

Presley said the state started a mobile unit so the training is closer to home.

“We reached out to the state and they set up this mobile program and it has worked out really well. This is our third time to host the event and first time at city hall,” Presley said.

Employees from over ten different law enforcement and dispatch centers are completing the training this week.

“We have got folks from all over Northeast Arkansas that is involved with law enforcement and 911 that will be testing this week,” Presley said.

The training offered is the advanced version of the crime center information system and is given once a year.
