In May 2021, the Birmingham Police Department began to select the first operators for the RTCC. During the establishment of the unit, Corporal Lucas and Corporal Norsworthy were selected along with four other officers to be the first operators of the RTCC. Corporal Norsworthy was instrumental in creating the unit’s Standard Operating Procedures and Rules and Regulations. While Corporal Lucas assisted in developing the units training manuals for systems used.

Corporal Norsworthy partnered with Corporal Lucas and have taken lead roles in establishing the Birmingham Police Department Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) program. Together they have researched the practicality for such a unit for the department. Although the program is in the infancy stages strides are being made daily to establish the unit. 

Since the creation of the RTCC, the unit has aided in many calls for service. From July 2021 to February 2022, the RTCC has aided in the recovery of thirty-seven stolen vehicles, using assets to locate sixty suspects of various crimes, and establishing numerous perimeters aiding in officer safety as well as scene security. Also, by using license plate readers and cameras throughout the city the RTCC has been able to prevent false reporting of stolen vehicles and other false reports, preventing elevation in statistics. The RTCC primarily assists patrol units and detectives by obtaining video footage as well as suspect and victim information. This information is relayed to the units to aid in completion of the investigation and apprehension of suspects.

dalton webb

Sergeant Dalton Webb is a 17-year veteran of the Forth Worth Police Department in Fort Worth, TX. Originally a native of Tennessee, Sergeant Webb relocated to Texas in 2005 where he has spent his policing career in a variety of assignments. In 2012 while assigned to the FWPD Intelligence/Homeland Security unit, he founded the department's first Real-Time Crime Center. Working alone without funding or staffing, that concept has grown into a 16 sworn officer operation with full 24/7 coverage within the City of Fort Worth. Having been in Patrol, the FWPD Special Response Team, Intelligence, Major Case, Burglary Investigations, and several others, he attributes these experiences to helping him develop the RTCC and having a keen understanding of what officers in the field need in terms of information to advance their investigations.

Sergeant Webb has a unique perspective on RTCC development and training since the Forth Worth RTCC was started from the bottom up. A truly grassroots project when it began, the successes that were experienced early in the concept led to the Fort Worth Police Department to begin investing in the idea. Now considered one of the most proactive and productive RTCCs in the United States, the FWPD RTCC is directly responsible for approximately 2,000 arrests and identifications per year and is a model for Technology-Driven Policing.

Sergeant Webb is currently writing his first book on the concepts of Technology-Driven Policing. A believer that every agency in the nation will have some form of RTCC within the next 10 years, he is passionate about teaching others how to be successful with technology and public safety.

Upon graduation from the NJSP Academy in 1998, he performed general policing and highway patrol duties in Northern New Jersey.
