Press Release from Ponchatoula Police Chief Bry Layrisson:

PONCHATOULA---Police Chief Bry Layrisson is pleased to announce that the Ponchatoula Police Department is finally able to get the new dispatch consoles and radios that have been in the works for over a year.

Chief Layrisson and Mayor Zabbia came together Friday morning to sign off on this purchase that the Police Department desperately needed.

The department is getting two new dispatch consoles from Motorola that include a combination of hardware, software, and services for better communication between officers and dispatchers, among other things. The MCC 7500 consoles offer Ponchatoula Police dispatchers integration capabilities to reach across multiple applications and resources for enhanced response coordination. The consoles have a highly intuitive interface that increases the ease of use for organizing resources, coordinating a response, and communicating important information. They contain an inherent security system to ensure that dispatchers stay connected to police officers with the best possible audio quality.

The Ponchatoula Police Department dispatchers currently use a radio that is made to be in a police unit. This new system will give the dispatchers updated equipment and greater quality.

Chief Layrisson says, “My administration and I have been working on this project for over a year to obtain this technology that will assist my officers with providing faster response times as well as many additional resources. This is just one of many projects that my administration has been successful in implementing to keep moving forward and keeping our citizens safe.”
