NEW YORK — Dec. 13, 2023 — Mark43, the leading cloud-native public safety software provider, today announced that the Cerritos College Police Department (CCPD) has deployed the Mark43 Public Safety Platform, including its records management system (RMS), computer-aided dispatch (CAD) and analytics. 

This significant upgrade provides CCPD’s 38 personnel, including 19 sworn officers, with a premier technology platform that will help in their mission of keeping the Cerritos College community safe. Prior to deploying Mark43 technology, Cerritos College used pen and paper for dispatch and report writing. Now, they have a premier computerized system that has transformed how they are able to support their campus community. 

Don Mueller, Chief at the Cerritos College Police Department said, “We are excited to be using this modern technology so we can spend less time on report writing and spend more time engaging with the campus community. I am beyond impressed with the professionalism and involvement of the Mark43 team during the entire process leading up to the deployment. I have dealt with many a vendor during my time in law enforcement, and I have never seen a company like Mark43 be so involved in meeting the end goal of getting us to the finish line.”  

Matt Polega, Mark43 Co-Founder and President said, “Chief Mueller and the Cerritos College Police Department have been fantastic partners, and we are thrilled that they are using the Mark43 Public Safety Platform to help keep students, faculty and staff safe across the Cerritos College campus. Our proven technology will provide CCPD personnel with the tools they need to ensure faster emergency response and to collect and analyze information so they can seamlessly put it into action. We are proud to be a trusted partner for campus safety and to have delivered the technology solution CCPD was looking for.”   

School campuses face heightened expectations of safety and require modern technology that local law enforcement counterparts use on a daily basis and which students, staff, and faculty expect. CCPD was seeking a technology system that was easy to use, had intuitive workflows, and had the capabilities to support higher education-specific compliance requirements. By providing users with the Mark43 Records Management System – a comprehensive platform for report-writing, investigations, and data sharing – the administrative burden on staff will now be reduced, freeing the agency to pursue proactive policing, engage with the campus community, and address public safety challenges.  

CCPD is also now equipped with Mark43 Analytics, a platform that will enable them to better focus on prevention and response. The new tool will also help maintain compliance with mandates like the Clery Act, which requires colleges and universities to disclose campus security information, like crime statistics, for the campus and surrounding areas.  

CCPD has also deployed Mark43 CAD, which provides emergency dispatch software that pinpoints exact caller and responder locations and shares critical, life-saving data with all nearby responding units to enhance safety for emergency responders and ensures the right units are deployed to the right location. The cloud-native technology provides best-in-class security and reliability, meaning that CCPD users can now access vital data quicker than ever, significantly improving officer safety, situational awareness, and their ability to serve the Cerritos College community.
