SOMA Global is the first cloud-based emergency CAD (Computer Aided Dispatch) system to go live in Ohio which was recently implemented by the Guernsey County Sheriff’s Office as a continued goal to provide faster and more robust emergency dispatching service to the residents of Guernsey County. Sheriff Paden and his staff performed a demo of the system to employees of Polk County. On hand to welcome Polk County Sheriff’s Office was Sheriff Jeffrey D. Paden and County Commissioners Skip Gardner and Ron Gombeda.
