Red Wing Police Department Adopts New Officer Scheduling App
Minnesota police department implements ScheduleAnywhere to improve officer scheduling
Fargo, N.D. (May 5, 2018) – Atlas Business Solutions, Inc. announced today that Red Wing Police Department of Red Wing, MN has selected ScheduleAnywhere as their staff scheduling solution.
Red Wing Police Department previously used Atlas Business Solutions’ desktop scheduling software, Visual Staff Scheduler Pro, but made the change to ScheduleAnywhere to improve schedule accessibility.
“We wanted our officers to be able to see their current schedules online. Before, a physical copy of the schedule was posted in the squad room,” says Chief of Police Roger Pohlman. “Also, anytime we had a change we had to deliver a new schedule to the courts and to dispatch. ScheduleAnywhere now allows us to update the schedule in one location and it can immediately be viewed by the officers, administration, courts and dispatch.”
“It’s been a positive change to move to ScheduleAnywhere,” says Chief Pohlman. “The officers enjoy the ability to check their schedule instantly from anywhere, and administration appreciates the ability to have correct schedule information immediately at our fingertips via the smartphone app.”
By switching to ScheduleAnywhere, scheduling is now faster and easier with easy access for both officers and administration.
