Mark43, a leading cloud-based public safety software company, and Winner in the 2019 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, has been selected to serve as the new technology partner for the Tustin Police Department in Orange County, California, for a ten-year contract.
A committee representing all divisions within Tustin PD unanimously selected Mark43 after an extensive two-year search.
Mark43 will be providing Tustin with a fully integrated, single-platform option including Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD), Records Management System (RMS), property and evidence, Analytics, and case management.
Tustin Police Department’s 150 civilian and sworn users will be joining over 80 leading public safety departments across the United States, including over 40 customer agencies in California and major cities like Seattle and Boston, in implementing Mark43’s innovative, resilient solution.
Mark43 CAD is one of the best-designed public safety dispatch platform in the market, while the RMS sets the industry bar for ease-of-use, reporting speed, and data accuracy.
Hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Government Cloud, Mark43’s platform will enable seamless data-sharing across the entire department through Mark43 Analytics, which centralizes RMS and CAD data reports in real time to better inform agency decisions.
After issuing a Request for Proposal (RFP) in 2018, Tustin Police Department undertook a rigorous selection process to identify a CAD/RMS system that would maximize functionality and reliability.
To evaluate Mark43, a committee with stakeholders from all divisions within the police department conducted an extensive due diligence process, which included reviewing demonstrations and conducting on-site meetings at three Mark43 user agencies in California.
Across the board, Mark43’s California customers praised the company’s great customer service with Mark43’s 24/7/365 support and willingness to listen and adapt to their unique needs.
Ultimately, Tustin Police Department selected Mark43 for their modern platform, configuration flexibility, and continuous strides in innovation based on customer feedback.
Mark43’s technology is also embedded with the public safety market’s most advanced National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) capabilities and adheres to the industry’s highest security standards.
The platform is in compliance with Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) and SOC 2 security requirements, enabling users to focus on the mission-critical work of keeping communities safe without worrying about security and compliant report-writing.
“We are proud to select Mark43 after a long, rigorous search for a system that would support Tustin PD’s efforts across the board,” explained Lieutenant Andrew Birozy of the Tustin Police Department.
“Above all, we want to ensure that Tustin remains a safe and well-maintained community for those who work, live and visit our city and Mark43 has proven to be the ideal partner for upholding this mission.”
Mark43 provides a refreshing, battle-tested, enterprise implementation experience and product for any agency, with a special competency for major agencies.

Powerfully Simple. Purposefully Smart.
Mark43‘s core software applications for dispatch, records, and analytics — and any additional software and hardware at your agency — are supported and connected by a set of platform-wide tools purposefully designed to break down information silos and optimize interoperability.
With the Mark43 RMS, NSWPF frontline, supervisors, investigators, and command staff will spend more time doing their real job and less time writing, searching, and checking reports.

Dynamic fields display only when contextually relevant
Active error detection eliminates time-consuming revisions and duplicate records
Automatic NIBRS/UCR code mapping simplifies required stat reporting
Information At Your Fingertips
Mark43 RMS makes entity data rapidly searchable and easily scannable, empowering departments to make informed decisions and effectively allocate resources.

Saved searches recall commonly used queries for future

Eliminate Information Silos
While most departments struggle to keep track of incident data in multiple systems and handwritten logs, Mark43 RMS finally puts everything in one place.
Hardware-agnostic software is adaptable for any web-enabled device in the department
Single-application workflows eliminate transcription and constant window switching
Configurable fields, barcodes, and location aliases maintain uniform records as policies change
Open API sends data between third-parties and Mark43 RMS
Security & Stability in the Cloud
Mark43 is the first to offer an integrated software platform built on true multi-tenant cloud architecture and the industry-leading AWS GovCloud.
FBI CJIS capable data storage and sharing
Regular software upgrades with zero downtime
Predictable, annual subscription pricing
Rapid, scalable implementation for multi-jurisdictional use
Mark43’s Records Management System (RMS) provides the most intuitive, quickest law enforcement report-writing experience possible, while Mark43 Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) is the best-designed public safety dispatch platform available.
Mark43 CAD and Mark43 RMS leverage the data your agency already collects to keep first responders safer and better informed.
Bidirectional syncing pulls all related CAD event and report histories to the front of event assignments with links to dig deeper
Multi-level cautions visually aggregate pertinent information for immediate contextual awareness of a scene
There’s no reason for first responders to blindly enter dangerous situations when critical information about a person or location can be at their disposal.
The Mark43 CAD will also enable users to focus exclusively on the mission-critical aspects of the job by providing a logical, natural, and simple tech experience.

The Next Generation of Configuration
When every second counts, so does every click, button, and field. The configurability tools within Mark43 CAD are designed to meet today’s workflows and easily adapt to tomorrow’s new reality.
Syntax-friendly command line, configurable to match existing agency hotkeys, eases user training and transition to a new system
Unlimited workspace and queue arrangements allow call takers, dispatchers, and supervisors to toggle between application displays optimized for their role and responsibility
Manageable presets for multiple agencies, units, call signs, priority levels, and statuses fit how your agency communicates and works – without a vendor work order or upgrade
Fully integrated AVL mapping — at no extra cost to your agency — keeps dispatchers and units in tune and connected to the communities they protect and serve.
Unit and event markers intuitively animate real-time GPS data from vehicles and department issued smartphones so active responders always know what’s going on and where
Google-integrated map and satellite views can be layered with agency-provided hotspots and multi-jurisdictional GIS data through a shape file import wizard
With a dedicated customer support team, Mark43 provides unwavering 24/7 support to address any customer needs or questions as they arise.
Seamless Data Exchange
Mark43 CAD and Mark43 RMS are natively linked to federal, state, and local databases, so first responders don’t have to radio for help or hopelessly sift through search results in multiple applications.
NCIC and other inquiry results attach to CAD event information for quick and easy reference during an active incident and transfer to the RMS during subsequent report writing
Platform-wide search performance means hundreds of thousands to millions of results can be queried in under one second and quickly routed to appropriate parties
“We are thrilled that Mark43’s expertise and battle-tested system stood out throughout Tustin PD’s extensive search,” added Matt Polega, Mark43 Co Founder and Head of Marketing.
“Mark43 looks forward to providing Tustin PD with unwavering support through any challenge.”
