CTS America provide tech solutions to numberous states

Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Montana are taking advantage of technology from a Pensacola company.

CTS America provides tech solutions for law enforcement and other related agencies. Solutions that could help save tax dollars.

In emergency situations, every second counts.
Law enforcement agencies are always looking for ways to improve response time, savings those seconds, and potentially savings lives.

"We're able to see calls when they pop up on the screen immediately. We can turn our vehicle in the direction of that call before the dispatcher lets us know what's going on. We can save that time," says Officer Mike Wood of the Pensacola Police Department.

The CTS America software takes pressure off busy dispatchers, improving performance and efficiency.

Helping keep officers, and citizens, safe with critical information.
"License plates, decals, the names of people to see if they're wanted," continues Wood.

Calls can be tracked from the moment they come in through completion by the responding officer.
Dispatchers know where officers are, and can choose the closest unit, giving turn-by-turn directions to reduce response time.

"Now we can see it on the screen immediately. If it's my call, on my beat, then and alert tone will go off," says Wood.

Not only does this technology save time, which can in turn save lives.
It can also help save your tax dollars.

The CTS in-car technology puts more information at officers' fingertips in the field, allowing agencies to share information.
"The state fire marshal, or the fish and wildlife commission, or departments of environmental protection. And they all now use a similar system that can share all that data," says Chris Larimer of CTS America.

Wood says, "We're able to run weapons, boats, cars - just about anything that we need to do we can do right here from the car."
It's a complete law enforcement and public safety system that supports all the things first responders need to do their job quickly, effectively and safely.
