The Stanly County Board of Commissioners approved at the December meeting upgrades for the county’s public safety data system.

County officials opened contract negotiations with Hexagon after receiving commissioner approval in October to replace the county-wide computer-aided dispatch (CAD) and Records Management System (RMS).

Commissioners approved at the meeting a contract with Hexagon for just under $2.5 million, which Stanly 911 director Kyle Griffin said is slightly less than the initial figure. The new system will require upgraded hardware, which will make the total cost of the project will be $2.8 million.

County IT Director Chad Coble said the system will have a look back feature and be able to access old files on demand.

The system is expected to be in operation in 2023.
