Officials Okay Sheriff’s Office’s Vendor Request

SNOW HILL – A new software program is expected to help the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office update its policies and procedures.

Last Tuesday the Worcester County Commissioners agreed to approve Sheriff Reggie Mason’s request to use Lexipol as a sole source vendor. Lexipol provides policy management software for public safety organizations throughout the country.

“There is no other company that offers what Lexipol has to offer,” Lt. Andrew McGee said.

Mason submitted a request to the commissioners to use Lexipol, at an initial cost of $40,000 and an annual maintenance cost of $19,000, to update procedures.

“This process is being conducted to address the recurring issue of the outdated procedures and policies and their adherence to state and federal statutes,” Mason wrote in a letter to the commissioners.

$40k initial investment + $19k/year for software to manage "procedures and policies" !?!

The company is run by financial managers, not law enforcement, not legal experts, not software experts.

There must be more cost effective solutions.

If you know anything about this company they have lawyer's from all 50 States on their payroll. They are the ones who go over these policies and provide the law updates for each state.
