POST Wins the "Best of California Award"
Web-based Compliance Dashboard and Online Interactive Course Catalog
The Best of California Awards program is sponsored by The Center for Digital Government, a national research and advisory institute on Information technology policies and best practices in state and local government. The Best of California Awards were established to recognize California state and local government and education organizations for contributions in information technology and solving business efficiency problems. All government and education organizations in California were invited to submit nominations.
The nominations were evaluated based on the following contest criteria:
- EFFICIENCY AND ECONOMY (20%)
- INNOVATION (20%)
- FUNCTIONALITY (20%)
- PERFORMANCE EXPECTATIONS (20%)
- COLLABORATION (20%)
The Center for Digital Government has awarded POST the Best of California Award in the category "Best In-House Developed Application."
POST is pleased and honored to receive this award. The awards presentation was held at the annual Government Technology Conference (GTC) West in May 2011.
About the Compliance Dashboard and Online Interactive Course Catalog
In October 2010, POST released the Compliance Dashboard and Interactive Course Catalog to allow individual officers to view and monitor their own training compliance, and to locate readily-available training courses. The Compliance Dashboard is available using a regular PC, as well as via iPads and smartphones through the POST Website.
The newly redesigned POST Website using a Content Management System (CMS) allows for workflow functionality as well as the ability to create such new and innovative applications. The CMS allows law enforcement constituents to access personalized self-service tools by logging into the POST Website securely using their POST-ID.
Since then, individual officers accessed the Compliance Dashboard over 13,000 times to determine their compliance.
The Interactive Course Catalog allows officers to select from more than 2,500 courses offered by over 800 presenters. The Catalog can target courses in close proximity to the officer's agency, search by topic, pin-point offerings on a Google map, and provide course details and presenter contact information.
Having California's officers in compliance with their training is important for public safety to ensure officers are competent and up-to-date with the latest training requirements. The Dashboard and Catalog will assist officers in accomplishing this.
