Officer Safety
Designed with officer safety in mind – with features like telescoping queries, quick tag, voice recognition, and auto tracking, our software makes it so the user doesn’t have to take their eyes off the road.

Advanced Search Capabilities
Search a variety of databases from your local records management system to state and national crime databases such as NCIC all with a single inquiry. The VelocityMDS Quick Tag feature enables you to enter a license plate or driver’s license number from any window and simultaneously search both NCIC vehicle and person files using our automated telescoping query function. Supporting NCIC transaction histories, VelocityMDS allows users to re-query previous inquiries and utilize the voice playback function. The automatic “hit” notification system not only alerts you to a potential hit, but immediately notifies the dispatcher and other officers in the area of your location and situation.

Security Check & Ride-by
Many agencies provide property owners with a service whereby and officer periodically drives by and checks on their home or business. The officer is then required to log his/her inspection. MDS provides officers with the ability to perform these services quickly, easily and with integration to VelocityCAD, further enhancing these services. Once a safety check has been entered into VelocityCAD, whenever an officer is near the location of the check, VelocityMDS automatically alerts the officer that a safety check has been entered and that location is needed to be checked with the touch of a button, the check is logged in VelocityCAD.

Interactive Messaging and Email
VelocityMDS provides you with secure, voiceless communications and file sharing. Interactive chat messaging enables you to silently communicate with other officers in the field (Car-to-Car) or communication with the dispatchers in the communications center (Car-to-CAD). Agency-definable quick messages allow you to select and send pre-defined messages from a drop-down menu keeping keystrokes to a minimum. The internal email system enables you to send messages to both on and off-duty officers and even support file attachments.

VelocityMDS has been cleverly designed, allowing you to manage unit status and update CAD instantly. Assigned incidents are automatically displayed on the integrated map, while adding/modifying CAD narratives is simple and easy. Conveniently obtain incident numbers, incident times and automatically display premise alerts and previous incident location history.

Third Party Application Control
VelocityMDS enables your agency to launch commonly used, third-party applications directly from the program whether the application is a customized program or a standard windows application such as Microsoft Word® VelocityMDS can be setup to helps.
