Publisafe Acquires Lucent's 911 Data Systems Business

(Chicago, IL - September 17, 2001) -- Publisafe [DSD at the time of the acquisition, now d.b.a. Publisafe] announced today that it has acquired the assets of Lucent Technologies' 911 Data Systems business. The 911 Data Systems business provides Computer-Aid Dispatch (CAD) software and Records Management System (RMS) software.

RMS software enables public safety organizations to keep careful and comprehensive records about incidents and arrests for the analysis and reporting both locally and on the state and federal level.

"Additionally, this transaction will help Lucent focus on its core competencies and customers."

Sergey Zaks, Chief Executive and chairman of Publisafe added that his company views this acquisition as a logical outgrowth of its relationship with Lucent and one which will enable the company to grow its presence in the public safety market while providing high levels of customer service to this demanding and vital public service.

Publisafe Releases PubliCam, a Map-based Security Camera Registration Application

(Chicago, IL) April 8, 2016, — Publisafe announces the release of PubliCam, a private security camera registration application. PubliCam assists Police Departments in investigating incidents, helps to deter crime and promotes community involvement.

Recent proliferation of private security cameras represents an important public safety development, creating an additional source of visual information. Many communities recognize the potential benefits of recordings made by private cameras, as they can help local Police Departments with investigations. Consequently, local PDs are setting up databases of private security cameras and Police Departments from California to Pennsylvania report positive results, both in terms of crimes being solved and the deterrent these programs play within their communities.

PubliCam is a joint public-private initiative program that encourages citizens to register their security cameras with the local police. When a crime has been committed, Publicam serves as a visual, map-based tool for police to identify the registered cameras in the proximity of the event and assists the police in requesting copies of camera recordings from the camera owners. The program is strictly voluntary and the police do not have access to live camera feeds. PubliCam is also a powerful and convenient communication tool: it allows the Police to send emails and/or text messages to camera owners. Police can select an individual owner, or a group of owners from a particular area on the map, and send them messages without leaving the map. Messages to all owner could be sent as well.

PubliCam, which is a mobile-friendly application, allows registrants to place security cameras in their exact location using a detailed local map. This makes the location more precise, and more useful for the police, than just supplying an address. Camera owners provide other pertinent information about their cameras and the contact information. This information is stored in secure databases; only the police have password-protected access.

PubliCam is a cloud-based app which is supported and maintained by Publisafe.
