SEATTLE -- Say there is a robbery and a suspect is on the loose.
Seattle police may not be the only ones keeping track of what’s going on.
Mike Wells is on the front lines of disseminating information but he’s not in law enforcement -- he works for Seattle Public Schools.
“We have two-way communications with SPD,” Wells said.
Any time a serious call comes in within a half a mile radius of any Seattle school, administrators are alerted immediately.
“If SPD is busy dealing with the incident and hadn’t had an opportunity to let us know, we are ahead of the game,” Wells said.
The technology they are using is called Safepoint and it allows SPS to see police and fire data in real time.
