Interview of Chief of Adrian’s Police Department Kyle Strickland:

Please tell us your name & Problems your department faced before implementing omniQ:

“My name's Chief Kyle Strickland with the Adrian Police Department. Well, when I first took over, we had a major problem with drug areas and gas drive off thefts from our convenience store. Different things lie on those lines and I was looking for a solution to keep up with what tags were in what area, what vehicles come through, how to help in our investigation in the gas drive offs or thefts or whatever.

And so, when we first looked into it, that was my major issue was we needed kind of another set of eyes out there 24/7.

What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of omniQ?

Its a force multiplier! With Qshield we investigated and solved a total of 23 gas drive offs at our local store because of the cameras. Had it not been for that, we just get a general description of the vehicle to, a general direction of travel, a general time. We go back, we look, and we'd just start an investigation from there. Most of them have been non-intentional, just forgotten to pay or whatever the case may be. But there's been one or two that have become an issue.

The second thing that has been the best that I'm so proud of that I've told everybody, We had a missing person reported on October the 30th of 2021. It was reported that night, actually in the next community over, which is Johnson County. Johnson County got in touch with me that night. We searched his tag number. Once we got it, and we got a picture of his car that morning, it was the only picture that's circulated nationwide for four days until we got one at the Jet food store of a front view of his car.

And so, we have not found him yet. However, that is instrumental in that investigation. Now, I've checked it to make sure he hadn't come back through or that tag hadn't come back through. So that's really good for us to be able to investigate if there's a missing person or a child abduction or anything along those lines. We can go back and look, see if they come through here.

How has omniQ helped the surrounding counties with investigations?

We had a stolen vehicle from Trenton County one time. They called and we looked. At least we could tell them they didn't come through here. We don't know where they went, but they didn't come through Adrian. Or at least through the red light. So that it's instrumental. It helps in those areas.

Why is having this solution so important to your agency?

We're a part-time agency. So I have somebody essentially here 24 hours a day now, because we have this solution. You get a call in the middle of the night and whatever may happen, you can look it up. You can look up live view. You can look up the tags. You'd know somebody is here 24 hours a day and you're not having to pay that salary and those benefits, I mean, it benefits you. So it's just, it's top of the line. It's a force multiplier. It really is. Then you always know you have that solution you can fall back on or go back to.

How has your experience with omniQ’s staff been?

My experience with this stuff so far has been exceptional. Mr. Bill and I have worked together since day one, since we first started getting into the planning stage. He calls me at least once a week, if not more. I mean, if we don't have business, at least once a week check, "Hey, chief, how's everything going? You need anything?". The guy that installed the equipment also communicates with me regulary,. If I have any issues or if I have any problems pulling something up on a computer, I have called Bill at one o'clock in the morning, like, "Hey Bill, I don't know how to do this, and I've had a situation I need to know." He's like, "Don't worry about it." He got it and he sends me whatever I need, or he walks me through it.

it's been exceptional customer support, exceptional help. A matter of fact, I called Bill one night. I think he was on vacation. I mean, he answered just like that. I told him, I said, "I hate to bother you so late." I think it was around 10 o'clock at night. He's like, "No, call me anytime." I told him what I needed and he walked me through it and we actually had it down pat within about 10 or so minutes. And so, he's really helpful. He really is. The staff so far has been really helpful and really intelligent. It's really good to have good people to work with.

How has having Qshield given law enforcement peace of mind?

I feel so much better having this solution as chief, as a father, as a citizen, as a person in general. For example say imagine if your car gets stolen and you call it in, I can get about a general direction of travel. It just helps our investigation a hundred percent. If a child, God forbid, gets abducted from the next county over and they're heading here, we can know where they're heading to hopefully set up to intervene as quickly as possible so we can get that child back to their family. Or a missing person, if we find out as soon as we can, we get that information, we can set up to intervene or help find this person and get them back to their family.

Because I can't imagine what the people here at local are through with this missing person, not knowing what happened, not knowing where he's at, or even if he's okay or alive. Just it's instrumental in that, just to know, okay, well we have one step closer to being able to solve these investigations than we had without them. It's just really nice to know and I can go home at night and know, okay, well, if something happens to one of my officers, I don't have to guess where they went or where the suspect went or what, because we have a way of looking that up if they go through our cameras. Same way if somebody comes through and steals something or does something to one of our citizens, we have a way of tracking them down and hopefully ending that investigation pretty quick. It's just, it's exceptional. I just can't speak highly enough of it. I really can't.”

Most of them have been non-intentional, just forgotten to pay or whatever the case may be. But there's been one or two that have become an issue.

Chief Kyle Strickland:

The second thing that has been the best that I'm so proud of that I've told everybody, the cameras that we have are OmniQ Solutions. We had a missing person reported on October the 30th of 2021. It was reported that night, actually in the next community over to Scott community, which is Johnson County, Johnson County got in touch with me that night. We helped a search party, went back and searched his tag number. Once we got it, and we got a picture of his car that morning coming through, and that was the only picture that's circulated nationwide for four days until we got one at the Jet food store of a front view of his car.

Chief Kyle Strickland:

And so, we have not found him yet. However, that is instrumental in that investigation. Now, I've checked it to make sure he hadn't come back through or that tag hadn't come back through. So that's really good for us to be able to investigate if there's a missing person or a child abduction or anything along those lines. We can go back and look, see if they come through here.

He calls me at least once a week, if not more. I mean, if we don't have business, at least once a week check, "Hey, chief, how's everything going? You need anything?" I can't think of his name now. The guy that come installed, we communicate quite a bit. If I have any issues or if I have any problems pulling something up on a computer, I have called Bill at one o'clock in the morning, like, "Hey Bill, I don't know how to do this, and I've had a situation I need to know."

The staff so far has been really helpful and really intelligent. It's really good to have good people to work with.

Chief Kyle Strickland:

So the reason that this has given us a peace of mind is, and I feel so much better having this solution, is number one, I know as chief and as a father, as a citizen, as a person, I know that, say somebody, your car gets stolen and you call it in, I can get about a general direction of travel. It just helps our investigation a hundred percent. If a child, God forbid, gets abducted from the next county over and they're heading here, we can know where they're heading to hopefully set up to intervene as quickly as possible so we can get that child back to their family.
