3 min read

Communicating within your own agency is difficult. Communicating with neighboring agencies can be even more difficult, especially during a community crisis. How do you communicate quickly in an effective and secure way? Email can be slow, and radio communications are not secure.

During any major crisis, a variety of agencies may be involved and need to stay in communication. This can include city police, county sheriffs, state police, federal law enforcement, district attorneys, state attorneys, local elected and state elected officials. How to we reach out to those who need to know the latest orders, intel, and updates?

Evertel can help your agency communicate with neighboring agencies and community leaders in less time and with less stress.

Invite Community Leaders as Guests

In a crisis where community leaders are involved and need to be in contact with your agency, it is difficult to stay on top of communication. You have emails, phone calls, messaging platforms, and in-person communication to manage both within your agency and with outside community leaders.

In Evertel, you can invite community leaders as guests to a room so you can give them updates and intel that is relevant to what they do. They will get the information securely in real time on their phone or computer, and you will save time by updating every essential community leader at once.

Create Inter-Agency Crisis Rooms

During a major crisis, your department can create inter-agency crisis rooms where your agency and neighboring agencies can securely share information. It can be very difficult to share information from agency to agency, especially during a crisis. With Evertel it is easy to communicate and collaborate.

In these crisis rooms, any member can send updates as needed, without fear of the media or public listening in. Radio communication can be effective for emergency communication, but private intel cannot be shared on public radio channels. Evertel is secure and compliant, so you don’t need to worry about information being leaked or someone listening in. Executives can even send out instant alerts to every member on Evertel in case of an emergency.

Hear it From Evertel Users

Take a look at what some of our users have to say about Evertel.

“Evertel gives me the ability to connect with all of my peers in neighboring agencies. Now we can instantly share crime trends, wanted persons, request support all in seconds, from our phones! That’s never happened in my 25+ years of service.”

Sgt. Thompson

“We just had an ‘officer-involved’ shooting and thankfully, the officer was only shot one time in the vest.  However, the rumors in our agency were very bad so from the scene, on my phone, I was able to update all employees on the real facts and dispelled all rumors.  That is a very powerful and extremely effective service Evertel offers.”

Chief Hernandez

“This system is great! Everyone is pleased with the platform.  Our small agency uses Evertel to send daily shift briefings to all patrol officers and dispatch. We all stay connected.”
