March 9, 2020
MCKINNEY, Texas. – Following a rigorous review process, EnforceNet is now FirstNet® Listed and accessible via the FirstNet App Catalog.
EnforceNet is a Criminal Justice Information Service (CJIS) -compliant iOS and Android native mobile app designed to improve first responder safety through highly secure location, communication, and alerting features right on a smartphone or tablet. No integrations are required, making EnforceNet ready to use as soon as it’s downloaded from the app store.
Out of the box features include messaging, Auto Vehicle Locator (AVL), emergency alerts (including Blue Alerts) and much more. Yet, with an open standards architecture to simplify integrations, EnforceNet can easily be expanded to:
- become the Smart Cities app platform communities use to get data from IoT sensors, live streaming video, and NCIC returns at the right time and to the right place;
- communicate incident level Call for Service data from dispatch;
- coordinate command and control from administrators;
- get rich media from 911 callers directly to the first responders who deliver emergency services live and at the point of incident.
FirstNet – America’s public safety communications platform – features the first-ever App Catalog geared to first responders, featuring more than 100 apps relevant to public safety’s mission. This gives FirstNet subscribers a dedicated location to find meaningful new solutions that have been specifically reviewed for use with FirstNet services. Before any mobile solution can be added to the FirstNet App Catalog, it must pass stringent tests for security, relevancy, data privacy and more.
“EnforceNet has aligned its mission with FirstNet’s,” said Herbert Severin, president of DigitalBlue Software, the creator of EnforceNet. “We created EnforceNet to be a highly secure communication solution for public safety. With FirstNet, subscribers get that security, plus the reliability of a dedicated national platform.”
Achieving a FirstNet Listed designation means EnforceNet is a vetted and trusted solution for public safety, meeting FirstNet app requirements. Additionally, FirstNet subscribers will benefit from FirstNet reliability while using EnforceNet.
