The State of New Jersey has awarded Winbourne Consulting a contract to perform an analysis of the State’s current 911 infrastructure, and develop recommendations for improvements needed to support NextGen Technology and operations.
As the lead subject matter expert, Winbourne Consulting is assisting the State of New Jersey in a preliminary assessment of their current 9-1-1 infrastructure in anticipation of moving to NG9-1-1. The project and our responsibilities include:
1) Research and review present industry trends. Baseline of what States have begun to or have migrated to towards NG9-1-1 in some form (ESINet, CPE, GIS);
2) Assess other state’s NG9-1-1 strategy including RFI/RFP, contract awards, and projected timelines for implementation;
3) Prepare options and recommendations to be presented to the Statewide Public Safety Communications Commission (SPSCC) for New Jersey’s migration to NG9-1-1 which consider:
a. Estimated infrastructure cost to State which includes concurrent, start-up and ongoing cost.
b. If New Jersey does not fund CPE for every PSAP and takes a phased approach is there a method for legacy analog CPE to coexist on the ESINet? What, if any, are the problems doing so?
c. Estimated cost to State/PSAPs comparing existing IP capable PSAPs to non-IP capable analog PSAPs. Is there a general “rule of thumb” when it comes to CPE costs
d. Project timeframe for migration from legacy to IP based infrastructure.
e. Recommend minimum requirements for the selection of qualified bidders. What NG9-1-1 providers operate a NOC?
f. Identify existing or potential functions that may exist within the state that can be leveraged in a statewide ESI network
g. Recommend a staffing model to coordinate and sustain such a network.
h. Evaluate the scope, complexity and the resources required for writing the final RFP and recommend whether such a project requires the services of an established professional consulting firm with the technical ability and experience in statewide NG9-1-1 RFP creation, or, if the project can successfully and timely proceed in-house. Provide estimated cost to outsource the RFP development effort.

VIRGINIA BEACH PUBLIC SAFETY SOFTWARE EXPO
Winbourne Consulting Co-Sponsored Virginia Beach Software Exposition a success for both vendors and public safety personnel.
As part of our role in developing an Integrated Public Safety Plan for the city of Virginia Beach’s public safety agencies, Winbourne Consulting organized a software expo that included managing and coordinating vendor participation and working with the Department of Communication and Information Technology in holding this event. Over 25 software vendors whose products ranged from CAD/Records/Mobile to forensics and evidence management participated in the 2 day event. Over 400 Public Safety personnel from Virginia Beach, neighboring and other Virginia localities, as well as out-of state localities were able to spend quality, 1-on-1 time reviewing the software vendors’ solutions. The Virginia Beach press release below describes how excited both the city and the software vendors are with the results of the expo.
Special thanks to the City of Virginia Beach and Charles L Monts, Integrated Public Safety Project Manager for their assistance in putting on a great event.
”The primary purpose of the expo was to expose Virginia Beach’s public safety members to the latest product features and capabilities. We had a total of 585 registered attendees with 419 checked in. We estimated 300-400 people each day – several attendees came both days. Again I want to thank you for attending and contributing to the success of this event. The response I have received from the Virginia Beach attendees and other localities has been very positive.”

Here is what some of the participants had to say:
“I thought the expo was a success, and my main complaint is that it wasn’t long enough. I wish I had had more time with the vendors.”
“Attendees from Virginia Beach and Other localities – were appreciative for the opportunity to view the latest and greatest in Public safety – good responses to questions about Mobile Field Reporting (MFR), tablets, Crime Scene/Case Management, Integrated possibilities for CAD and RMS (for Police, Fire, and EMS). Attendees also saw new mobile technologies and capabilities.”
“The Virginia Beach Fire Department members provided excellent feedback about the expo. Members were able to see and touch systems that will enhance their ability to perform their jobs. The mobile operating environment was most important to the operations personnel and the advancements in routing, mapping, and premise information were very popular. The ability to drill into information in the records management systems were very helpful to the data analysis and the accreditation manager. The members I spoke to are excited to see the opportunities to leverage new technology. We thought it was a great way to show the systems and to increase knowledge about the IPS project.”
From Hanover County: “appreciate that VA Beach pulled this together. Looking forward to collaborating with you.”
And from the vendors:
“I heard nothing but good responses from the vendors about the participation from local, regional, other states, etc.”
“Thanks again for the invitation to be a part of such a well planned and executed event.”
“Thanks again for the opportunity to participate in this unique event. We thought the event was well planning and organized and were quite happy with the attendance. Our team had a chance to speak to over one-hundred Virginia Beach personnel as well as personnel from surrounding Hampton Roads agencies including many existing customers. In the process, we also identified several net new prospective business opportunities. We look forward to the next steps in the process at Virginia Beach.”
