Winbourne Consulting is supporting the planning and design tasks for the new Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Headquarters and 911 center. We are working as part of the Architect’s Team as the Technology Consultant. For reference, Maricopa County includes the City of Phoenix, the 6th largest US city and the County is over 9,990 square miles in area, almost the size of the state of Massachusetts and a population of about 4M residents. The firm is providing technology design services for Command / Security Control and Communications Centers.

 

We supported the Architect’s team and MCSO with the technology aspects for the development of the facility Program, Schematic Design, Design Development and Construction Documents. Our project work is now in the Construction Administration phase. In support of this task we are coordinating on a daily basis with the Construction Manager, Architect, MCSO, County IT and technology vendors.

 

Our responsibilities also included the development of technical specifications for 911-related systems. These systems are considered special and are being procured by the County in separately from the building and the General Contractor’s scope. In this capacity, we have worked with many units within the MCSO to include the 911 Emergency Operations Center staff to develop specifications for the following technologies:

 

    • Computer Aided Dispatch, Records Management System, Mobile Data systems
    • Audio Visual Systems
    • Radio Systems infrastructure
    • 911 and administrative telecommunications systems
    • Logging and recording system
    • Network Design

 

A new P-25 radio system is being procured by the County on a separate initiative. We are coordinating with this project for integration into the 911 center and Sheriff’s command center.

 

In addition to the specifications, we have provided the MCSO and County with budget estimates for each of the systems as well as integration costs. We also coordinate on a continuing basis with the County Office of Enterprise Technology and the MCSO IT staff the design of the network that will support the new facility and used to transport voice, data, and video throughout the county to support law enforcement efforts.

 

Our firm is also responsible for the design and fit-out, testing, and acceptance for the technology components listed above and recently completed the management of the migration of the 911 center to the new facility.

Winbourne Consulting was engaged by the City of Los Angeles to provide expert consulting services to assess its need for CAD-to-CAD connectivity between the City, Los Angeles County, the city of Long Beach, and Verdugo Fire, and to create functional and technical expectations to be included in a Statement of Work and RFP for a CAD-to-CAD solution.

 

Our project tasks include:

  • Assess the current people, process and technology needs for a CAD-to-CAD solution
  • Provide a Needs Analysis for a CAD-to-CAD solution
  • Meet with all jurisdictions to develop technical and functional expectations
  • Validate all technical and functional expectations with representatives from all jurisdictions
  • Create a Statement of Work and Functional Expectation Worksheet for inclusion in an RFP
  • Recommend vendor evaluation and demonstration criteria

 

We interviewed the deputy city manager, LA project team, fire chiefs from all jurisdictions and senior stakeholders, and collected detailed operational and system information from all of the fire agencies. We also facilitated a series of data gathering meetings, to include interviews, focus group sessions, and workshops to document the existing technology and functional expectations of all fire agencies. One of project’s primary objectives was to document the current CAD-to-CAD needs to determine if a CAD-to-CAD solution meets the desired expectations and fulfills the strategic goal of the project.

 

  • The strategic goal of the project is to provide incident and apparatus information during mutual and automatic aid scenarios between the four jurisdictions that equips the dispatchers with real-time, electronically driven information that expedites dispatch times; thereby reducing on scene response times.

 

The project scope is:

  • Develop a Needs Assessment for a CAD-to-CAD: Develop technical and functional expectations and supporting jurisdictional information for an RFP designed to procure a CAD-to-CAD solution for the four jurisdictions with the flexibility and expandability desired for future operations.
