Pittsburgh Police Implements Ordia Solutions for Special Operations, Foot Patrol, and Officer Safety


Largest City in Western Pennsylvania Deploys Real-time Command and Control System to Enhance Officer Safety, Shorten Incident Response Time, and Coordinate Tactical Operations, Special Events, & Specialized Unit Patrol

Pittsburgh, PA, and Vienna, VA, January 27, 2009 – Ordia Solutions, the leading provider of integrated real-time command and control systems for first responders and their chain of command, announces the successful deployment by the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police (PBP) of Ordia Solutions’ next-generation Mobile Tactical Collaboration System™ (MTCS) and AdvanTraq™ GPS to enhance law enforcement operations. The system is being used for a variety of functions from critical incident response, major sporting event security management, national special security events, critical infrastructure protection, port security, and counterterrorism exercises, to specialized and routine patrol operations.

With renewed emphasis in beat patrol in the neighborhoods and business districts, PBP officers play a reassuring role to law-abiding citizens and business personnel, while serving as deterrents to law breakers. “A key concern among commanders during specialized unit patrol is the safety of our officers and their locations in relation to a high threat area or reported incident”, said Nathan E. Harper, Chief of Police, Pittsburgh Bureau of Police. “The Ordia Solutions technology provides unparalleled situational awareness to field commanders and the chain of command as it facilitates the real-time tracking and redirecting of officers during police operations, enabling the Bureau to respond to their needs at a moment’s notice.”

In addition to supplying the collaborative command and control software and integrated personnel GPS trackers, Ordia Solutions is delivering training, system customization, tactical system support, and additional services to integrate the MTCS platform with PBP’s existing technologies and workflow processes. “Having pioneered the use of real-time command and control systems for law enforcement counterterrorism exercises and major sporting event security management”, noted Joe E. Ordia, Chairman and CEO, Ordia Solutions, “Pittsburgh is extending the force-multiplier advantages of the MTCS platform to optimize its Patrol operations while enhancing the safety of its officers.”
