VINELAND POLICE DEPARTMENT ADOPTS NATIONAL LAW
ENFORCEMENT AND COMMUNITY POLICING NETWORK
VINELAND, NJ: Vineland Mayor Anthony Fanucci and Vineland Police Department Acting Chief Pedro Casiano are proud to announce that the City of Vineland’s Police Department is one of the first departments in the nation to adopt the “OPS National Law Enforcement and Community Policing Network,” known as the OPS Network.
The OPS Network is the nation’s very first and only community policing network, global officer to officer communication platform, and law enforcement specific operating system. The OPS Network was specifically developed to create a secure gateway and partnership between law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve, while streamlining agency operations, drastically expanding agency resources, and connecting law enforcement agencies, officers and communities 24/7.
With the OPS Network, officers and community members will have access to the tools and technology needed to seamlessly work together, shaping the future of twenty-first century policing, and community engagement.
Utilizing the network, community members can interact and partner with law enforcement like never before. From the Vineland Police Department’s OPS Community Interface (think website on rocket fuel), community members can:
* Submit 100% Anonymous TIPS.
* Subscribe to receive Alerts, News, and Press Releases.
* View and download Wanted and Missing person flyers and bulletins.
* Ask questions and get answers from actual officers.
* File internal affairs concerns.
* Commend officers.
* Download important documents.
* Read agency policies and procedures.
* Learn about career opportunities.
* Register Special Needs family members.
* Learn about the department.
* Keep up to date with daily police activity.
* Share surveillance camera information.
* Access a myriad of valuable resources and community tools.
The OPS Network is a direct and transparent law enforcement partnership tool that requires no logins or APP downloads, is completely web based and works from any modern computer or smartphone.
In addition to the community connection, the OPS Network contains a whole host of assets and tools which will allow our officers to more readily network with our partner law enforcement agencies, operate more efficiently, from anywhere at any time, and leverage the power of the network to offer much better services to the community.
“The OPS Network is the first of its kind and the City of Vineland is very proud to be one of its earliest adopters, taking a giant leap into the future of community policing” said Vineland Mayor Anthony Fanucci. “We know how critical our community partnerships are, and with the OPS Network, the community and our department can work as one.”
Vineland Police Department Acting Chief Pedro Casiano added “Community partnership is at the core of the Vineland Police Department. Being one of the first agencies in the nation to adopt the OPS Network is evidence of that. With this new and amazing advancement in the field of law enforcement and community policing, we are proud to be setting a new standard and strengthening our already strong community connection.”
Both Mayor Fanucci and Acting Chief Casiano added that they encourage other city and town leaders across New Jersey and beyond to join them on the network. “The more agencies that join the OPS Network, the more the network can grow to build those bridges between our citizens and our law enforcement partners. In the end, we are on track to truly change the meaning of Community Policing forever.”
