Nebraska School Safety

The State of Nebraska introduced Nebraska LB673 and LB1339; these bills propose to provide grants to schools that adopt a policy to provide emergency response mapping data to law enforcement agencies and provide powers and duties for the State Department of Education and State Board of Education.

Our Work with School Districts

 

  • Indoor Maps Pilot Project Completed in Burt and Cuming County, Nebraska

    GeoComm has completed a pilot project with the Burt County Sheriff’s Office and Cuming County E911 Dispatch in Nebraska to integrate GIS-based indoor maps for one school in each county.

    Denco 9-1-1 Brings Indoor Maps to Schools, Providing 9-1-1 Actionable Location Information

    Denco Area 9-1-1 District (Denco 9-1-1), providing 9-1-1 services to nearly 800,000 people in 33 jurisdictions throughout North Texas, recently worked with GeoComm to bring indoor maps to 86 K-12 public schools throughout the region.

    Tri-County School Safety Pilot Project

    The Tri-County School Safety Pilot Project aimed to create detailed GIS indoor maps of seven pilot schools in the Tri-County area to improve response times to school incidents. The maps were shared with dispatch centers to be used in their 9-1-1 applications.

GeoComm School Safety

Accelerate school incident response with trusted and patented technology for superior indoor visualization. GeoComm School Safety empowers your school and community with a dynamic footprint for a more unified, effective, and responsive security. This solution nearly instantaneously links a 9-1-1 call or the press of a panic button to designated school personnel (e.g., SRO) and law enforcement, displays the caller’s location on a detailed indoor map and alerts others to the incident.

In addition, the indoor maps can be provisioned into public safety applications, resulting in greater interoperability. The indoor map acts as the hub, integrating capabilities which can have a significant effect on reducing response times and improving situational awareness.

 

 

How will GeoComm Provide Value to the Nebraska School Districts?

The proposed legislation (LB673 and LB1339), as written today, funds the development of non-GIS formatted images of school floor plans. This limits the interoperability within the State’s rich GIS data systems and existing Public Safety applications. This potentially requires 9-1-1 centers and emergency responders to utilize applications outside of their current systems and workflows to view these images.

GeoComm encourages anyone supportive of interoperable public safety data to navigate to each piece of legislation and provide comments to remove reference to “Be a finished map product in a file format easily accessible using a standard or open-source file reader.” and replace it with “Be in a finished map product in a standard GIS format.”
