Suisun council approves computer contract

By From page A4 | January 23, 2014

SUISUN CITY — The Suisun City Council approved spending $18,000 Tuesday for a six-month contract to help the Police Department maintain its information technology services.

Cohero, a company that offers an integrated law enforcement system, will provide emergency technological support under terms of the contract.

The city needed to take this action after Suisun City Police Sgt. Andrew White, who helped the city develop and maintain such items for the Police Department while employed here, left the department.

White is now employed by Cohero and sold the rights to his software programs to that company. While Suisun City can continue to use the programs at no cost, there are fees for application support and maintenance.

The contract allows the city to meet the Police Department’s IT needs while it assesses what long-term options and alternatives it has open to it, according to city staff.

    I mentioned during my comment on this item at the council meeting that it should be open to public bidding. Not a word was said in reply. Oh, I forgot, only insiders need apply in Suisun! America, what a country!!!!

    Is there anyone else that can support that software since it's proprietary? Wouldn't going elsewhere require purchasing a whole new software solution?
