Mark43’s actionable tech offering for transparent records management will enable agencies nationwide to lay a foundation for policing that is just and equitable starting today, not tomorrow
Mark43’s actionable tech offering for transparent records management will enable agencies nationwide to lay a foundation for policing that is just and equitable starting today, not tomorrow.

Mark43, a leading cloud-based public safety software company, and 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program Winner has announced the rollout of its Accountability, Compliance, and Transparency (ACT) Program for law enforcement agencies across the nation.

This comprehensive new package will include a combination of use of force reports, behavioral crisis reports, stop reports, and dashboards, to give agencies a full package to ACT on behalf of their community.

In this watershed moment for United States law enforcement, Mark43 stands with all those who are angered by the unjustifiable death of George Floyd and the ongoing challenges of racism and inequity it represents.

The company is working to promote transparency, best practices, and innovation with the hope that law enforcement agencies and their communities may know decades of trust, compassion, and partnership.

The ACT Program is one of many actionable solutions to help police departments to build community trust, make a change, and recommit to the missions they’ve been pursuing since their inception.

Through its new comprehensive records management package, Mark43 will help police to streamline data collection and searchability.

As the primary data collection tool for a police officer’s day-to-day activities, Mark43 can make sure that law enforcement efforts are documented, searchable, available, and ultimately accountable.

With data management systems built to reflect the latest policies and best practices in law enforcement, Mark43’s ACT Program will also help departments become more compliant with internal policy and reinforce training and procedure at a user level.

Importantly, ACT will enable police departments to become more transparent.

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.

Ensuring that data remains searchable, surfaced in dashboards, and available to the people that need it most – which includes command staff, city leadership, and members of the community – is the best way to guarantee that police departments are built on cornerstones of trust and service.

When fulfilled jointly and correctly, these three crucial objectives lay the foundations for policing that is just and equitable.

Agencies that utilize Mark43’s ACT Program can be proactive, responsive, and ensure that they are indeed acting on behalf of their constituents.

“With the ACT Program, we are enabling agencies to act quickly, meaningfully, and on behalf of the people whom they serve.”
