Crown Pointe Technologies, a leading technology firm focused on public safety training systems and based in Portland, Oregon, was selected to implement its FTO (Field Training Officer) System at the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department in San Bernardino County, California.
The Crown Pointe FTO System was specifically designed to simplify the complex data entry, reporting, and management requirements of an FTO training program. By providing easy to use integrated tools, participants in the process can save significant time and costs by eliminating Excel spreadsheets and paper documents most often used to maintain daily updated training records. The ability to interactively create, edit, spell-check, evaluate, print, secure, report on, and archive FTO saves significant officer time and costs.
“These essential (and in many states required) new officer training programs have been time consuming and cumbersome to operate. An FTO Officer’s time is a valuable asset and it is essential that the focus is on working with and evaluating the OIT (Officer in Training) and not data recording. Crown Pointe’s unique FTO document design feature also enables the FTO System to grow with an agencies future FTO program needs, thereby protecting their investment. As a company, we have purposely scaled the pricing of our FTO System so it is readily affordable by any size public safety agency.” stated Chuck Lowry, Crown Pointe CEO.
Mr. Lowry, continued, “We are honored that we and our software chosen for this important training program. Our FTO System is based on a significant amount of research on building an efficient and flexible FTO System that will serve the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department for many years into the future.” Installation and configuration of the software will commence in October, 2009. Crown Pointe will provide the software, installation, and ongoing maintenance and support of the FTO System.
