Public Approval and Transparency – How Does Your Administration Deliver?

3 min read

Police transparency—whether internal or public-facing—begins with communication clarity. And the rapid sharing of intelligence leads to faster crime solving and crime reduction. From there, public approval naturally follows.    Police transparency is a hot-button issue in today’s climate. In the era of instant communication and social media, ‘truth’ and ‘news’ is oftentimes decided by likes and shares, rather than facts. Hearsay spreads like wildfire on public networks, and city leaders struggle against social media headlines, false narratives, and protest groups that can mobilize at the sound of a tweet.

Law enforcement agencies need a better tool to ensure the truth is upheld. And with Evertel, they get the edge they need to stay in front of news before it breaks. The app makes it easy to communicate quickly and clearly with other local departments and even across state lines, and in turn, keep the populations they serve safe. 

Accountability with Public Safety

Evertel’s technology is designed to support police transparency—not only for their own agencies but for their public records retention requirements too. The solution works to increase accountability and build even stronger relationships with the general public and community leaders.

Sharing key information via email is slow and awkward. But the alternatives to Evertel (texting and SMS, or public messaging apps) aren’t any better. They’re not just unorganized, using them for work correspondence is also illegal.

Other communication methods also put agencies at risk for hacking, data breaches, and having critical information fall into the wrong hands. Evertel’s military grade encryption and security features work to keep your critical information safe.

Evertel makes it simple for law enforcement agencies to stay compliant and transparent. It helps hold teams accountable and keep communication pathways clear because all messaging is fully retained, never deleted, and fully inline with federal and state-level regulations. Evertel’s archiving features ensure that you can always access and review old messages, so the truth is always at your fingertips for audits, internal investigations, or case logs. 

Faster Crime Solving

Evertel was specifically created for public safety professionals, and its user-friendly features help bring about quicker resolutions to criminal activity. Internal police transparency becomes second nature when chiefs, sheriffs, and police executives have the ability to clarify situations and dispel rumors with direct messaging. They can use the app to update every single employee instantly, which is really invaluable in today’s fast-paced world.

Evertel even allows for interdepartmental communication to share intelligence directly with public safety partners. It gives law enforcement true speed when it comes to crime solving. You want to be able to act fast, before any baseless lies have the chance to be created and spread throughout your community.

The Solution to Interoperability

Law enforcement accountability and communication become streamlined when you have the ability to share all intelligence and collaborate in real-time with your neighboring agencies, fire, and paramedics. Accurate and immediate intelligence can be shared across states or even nationally with the Evertel community. This leads to quicker arrests, located missing persons, and crime reduction as a whole.  

Police dispatch, crime analysts, and support personnel can ensure communication clarity by instantly pushing accurate data to all those who need it. You can get even more out of Evertel by using group chats across neighboring agencies. It’s the easiest way to reach true interoperability.

Your patrol officers can share beat information, suspect info, and crime data in real time. The Evertel app keeps communication clear, and that means communities can rest assured that their public safety professionals are being held accountable.
