SCSO launches Prepared Live
by Sublette County Sheriff’s Office
May 15, 2023
Sublette County Sheriff’s Office is excited to announce the launch of Prepared Live in our 9-1-1 Communication Center).
Developed by Prepared, the software enables our 9-1-1 Communication Center to livestream, receive multimedia, and location data from mobile callers in real-time. This addition to our technology suite will significantly improve our ability to effectively, and efficiently, respond to emergencies in the community.
First and foremost, the Prepared Live System is about saving lives. Prepared Live is another tool in our toolbox. Having live, real-time information from scenes will help to provide quicker and safer response services. We will be able to better respond to emergencies because we will have live real-time information from people who are on scene. Participation in video-chat during a call is completely voluntary and consent of the caller is required. If the caller consents, they will receive a livestream link via text from the dispatcher, enabling them to activate live video upon a click. It’s important to note that the video call function does not allow Sublette County 9-1-1 Communication Center access to the contents or settings of a caller’s phone.
This launch follows weeks of preparation and training to ensure that our Communication Officers and our team can properly utilize the software. Working side-by-side with the Prepared customer success team, we have created and adopted policies to ensure that Prepared Live is used effectively in various scenarios. Prepared, led by co-founders Mike, Dylan, and Neal, is a mission-driven organization with a passion for improving public safety. In creating an app to help mitigate school emergencies, the team discovered that valuable data is lost in existing 9-1-1 processes and set out to address the problem by inventing Prepared Live. Since public launch in October of 2021, the product has helped protect over 40 million people in 48 states. To learn more about Prepared and Prepared Live, visit Prepared911.com
