They signed a contract with SMART Public Safety Software, Inc. and paid them $500,000.

Months and many failed milestones later, SMART went bankrupt and left Kings County with a half-finished, broken product.

The Sheriff’s Office canned it and went back to their old software, but the Kings County police departments who also signed up for SMART were stuck using it for years.

That fiasco is one of the reasons why Robinson and the Sheriff’s Office waited so long to decide on a new system.

“This has been a great joint effort by county staff, our IT department, Spillman Technologies and Assistant Sheriff Putnam,” Robinson said. “They’ve all done an outstanding job with the encouragement and support from our board of supervisors.

Assistant Sheriff Dave Putnam says it’s been difficult for new deputies to adapt to the ancient parser, having grown up using simple, modern interfaces.

A previous effort to upgrade the county’s system went bust in 2008 after signing contracts with SMART Public Safety Software, Inc. Almost every Kings County law enforcement agency joined together to use this system under the promise that it would allow them to share records and work better together.

Instead, the company took $500,000 of the county’s money, delivered a half-broken product, then went bankrupt and disappeared under a new corporate identity.

In the aftermath, the Lemoore and Hanford police departments were stuck using the unfinished software, while other agencies switched back to their archaic systems.

SMART met its end in 2012, when the area police departments joined together to adopt the RIMS software by Sun Ridge Systems.

But the Sheriff’s Office declined to follow them, preferring to find a service that would accomodate running the Kings County Jail and dispatching for the Avenal Police Department.

They met their match with Spillman Technologies, Inc., a Utah-based firm that provides systems for more than 1,000 agencies across the country.

Robinson said the switch will cost them only $10,000 a year more than they were already paying to maintain the old system.

The Kings County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously in late 2012 to adopt the platform.

The crash occurred at a crossing that was equipped with control gates, Putnam said.
After the crash, metal pieces from the truck could be seen inside the train, which was covered by cotton seeds. Several pieces of luggage were also scattered about.
The injuries to passengers were described as bumps, bruises, scrapes and possibly broken bones by Kings County Assistant Sheriff Dave Putnam.
