Hello, Your request was forwarded to me. After consulting with the EPD and Detective Bureau, we do not have any records responsive to your request as we have not entered into contracts or had licenses for this type of software. The City of Euclid contracts their dispatch to the Chagrin Valley Dispatch, so they may be an entity to contact. Thank you.
