Daytona Beach, FL, September 22, 2011 – The Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) has selected 25 featured products from an assessment made at the 77th Annual Conference APCO held in Philadelphia, PA.

For the past several years, an anonymous team of experienced communications professionals has roamed the exhibit hall at the Annual APCO International Conference & Exposition reviewing new products (those released in the past year) and bringing their favorites to our attention for publication in Public Safety Communications. This year, we had about 90 entries from more than 70 companies. It was nice to see so many companies investing in product development for public safety communications. In Philadelphia, our reviewers got their hands on the technology, asked the tough questions and drew conclusions. gtechna was recognized in its category for outstanding innovation in e citation solutions as part of a new wave of communications taking mobile platforms such as Android to new levels — that could soon be coming to your agency.

“I think this is the wave of the future for county agencies,” says one reviewer. “It creates portability for code enforcement, meter readers, motor officers, etc. Since the introduction of Android and iOS, technology just keeps getting smaller.”

Lisa Williams, APCO’s director of events and corporate outreach stated that, “the Hot Products Review is huge benefit to the Public Safety and Communications industry because it reassures law enforcement agencies that organizations are working hard to improve the quality and foundation of public safety communications bringing indispensable gains in efficiency to the law enforcement sector.”
