SIGNIFICANT ISSUES
DPS reports the department will support the use of digital mapping data when the data is avail-
able from all counties. DPS states the department understands contractors are working with
counties on digital mapping data. DPS reports upon completion of the all counties updating their
digital mapping data, DPS can utilize this data if compatible into the computer-aided dispatch
system. DPS states the department will collaborate with the Department of Finance Administra-
tionís Local Government Division to acquire completed digital mapping data. DPS reports ac-
cess to updated maps and data ensures the safety of officers and citizens of New Mexico.
PERFORMANCE IMPLICATIONS
DPS states developing a plan at this point would not be an effective and efficient use of tax pay
dollars, since all counties do not have digital mapping data available.
ADMINISTRATIVE IMPLICATIONS
DPS reports the information technology staff will need to utilize already limited personnel re-
sources in the development and discussion of this plan. DPS estimates around several individu-
als would have to commit extensive time to this matter.
