RANN UTILIZATION EXPERIENCE. CASE STUDY NO. 21. TECHNOLOGY IN CITY OPERATIONS
This project, referred to as 'Totem 1,' is demonstrating the extent to which science and technology can help city officials improve the delivery of municipal services. The focus is on identification of technology that can be transferred successfully into city operations and on the subsequent transfer and beneficial application of that technology. Efforts have been varied: for example, hardware innovations in the fire department; computer software applications directed at public transit, courts, and police problems; and training and organization changes in several departments. At present the most impressive applications are the computer software products, but the hardware technologies promise significant returns in the future. The anticipated benefits suggest that additional technology transfer projects should be attempted.
