Civil Unrest: Police Preparedness, Trends, and Staffing Software Solutions

Learn about a PoliceOne survey on civil unrest preparedness and automating staffing and recall.

Law enforcement has growing concerns about civil unrest. Learn what law enforcement personnel say in a PoliceOne survey about their department’s response readiness, and how the UKG TeleStaff™ solution supports preparedness with automated scheduling and communication.

One-third of survey respondents said they had worked a civil unrest incident in the prior six months, and 43% said their department was not prepared to respond to a large-scale disturbance.

A case study about the Port of Seattle Police Department demonstrates the value it has seen from its UKG TeleStaff solution during a number of disturbances. The automated scheduling and communication solution has helped the department:

  • Simplify contacting and deploying officers, saving time and money spent on manual calls
  • Identify each officer’s expertise, training, and special assignments so appropriately skilled officers are notified and deployed
  • Track emergency response hours by job codes for easy reporting and streamlined FEMA reimbursement when applicable

“The right employees were contacted in the right order [by UKG TeleStaff], and all communications were automatically documented.”
