CURRENTLY THERE ARE 28 TRACS FORMS IN PRODUCTION AND SEVERAL AUTOMATICALLY TRANSMIT ON A REGULAR BASIS TO THE COURT SYSTEM AS WELL AS THE NIAC (Nebraska Information Analysis Center) AND NEBRASKA DOT.

The MACH system is an invaluable tool for interoperability between agencies. MACH users can view their partner agencies on the MACH Map and quickly coordinate responses and communicate during incidents. MACH is currently used by the Nebraska State Patrol, Nebraska Game and Parks, State Fire Marshals and by 90 local partner agencies. NSP uses the MACH CAD system and dispatches for NSP as well as Game and Parks and Fire Marshals. NSP is the only CAD user at this time and is developing plans to expand CAD for local agencies.
