Hundreds of public safety departments contact us each year about scheduling software solutions (because that is what we specialize in). Talking to these professionals in the industry, we learn a lot about different contract rules, scheduling rotations, and scheduling processes.

Since PlanIt Schedule is used throughout the country, many times we have people asking us

#1 - What other departments near us use your product?

#2  - Who are some of your competitors?


These are two great questions for a couple different reasons:

  • You're going to get honest feedback from people using the system on a daily bases - pros and cons
  • If a company can't give you any referrals, there is probably a reason for that...
  • Finding out and researching competitors will allow you to see advantages/disadvantages of each

Now we, of course, find our scheduling software to be the "best" by providing the most features for the most affordable cost.

AKA receiving more bang for your buck.

But we want you to find that out for yourself and not just take our word for it. 

Therefore, we have listed below some companies who also provide law enforcement scheduling software.


5 Law Enforcement Scheduling Software Companies Include:

1. Kronos - Telestaff Kronos was founded in 1977 in Massachusetts. They offer Workforce Telestaff for public safety but are providers for many other industries as well.

2. VCS - POSSVCS was established in 1998 in New Jersey. VCS offers scheduling software for the general workforce, law enforcement, fire & rescue, and local government.

3. InTimeInTime is based in British Columbia and was founded in 1996. They focus on law enforcement, fire & rescue, and complex organizations.

4. Aladtec - Aladtec focuses on scheduling solutions for industries such as EMS, fire & rescue, law enforcement, dispatch, and healthcare. They originally created scheduling software in 2002 and became the official "Aladtec" in 2005. 

5. ScheduleAnywhere - Schedule Anywhere offers their scheduling software to transportation, retail, government, energy, public safety, and healthcare. They were founded in 1991 in North Dakota.


A few reputable law enforcement sites that offer scheduling software company directories as well can be accessed here: PoliceOne scheduling software directory, administrative software directory, and Police Magazine administration products & services.

A lot of variables come into play that makes each one of these options better for some departments than others.
