This case study is intended for law enforcement and other agencies interested in establishing a regional common operational picture (COP) for planning and execution of major events and/or incidents.
Federal, State and Local law enforcement agencies needed a system that would enable sharing of information for planning and execution of security operations for six major events, including Super Bowl XLIX, occurring in the Phoenix Arizona Region over a 10 day period.
Arizona’s Multi Agency Coordination Center (MACC) chose GeoSuite™ as its operational tool because it provides real-time situational awareness and collaboration.
“In a time like this, the more we see, the better. We can be proactively monitoring, looking for things happening, and it gives the decision-makers, the managers, a chance to see what’s going on as opposed to just hearing what’s going on through radio chatter.”
nFocus Solutions is pleased to offer this white paper to the law enforcement community and FirstNet for evaluation and consideration in establishing regional common operating pictures (COPs) for state fusion center operations or major event planning and execution. This paper encompasses the planning, execution, delivery and operations of the GeoSuite capability across the Phoenix region to support the 2015 Pro Bowl (NFL), Waste Management Phoenix Open (PGA), Super Bowl XLIX and other local events. The program was executed and delivered within 49 days of award and completed in 60 days following completion of the operational cycle. The project was funded through a State Homeland Security Grant Program (SHSGP) award and complimented previous GeoSuite customer deployments in the Phoenix region.
