SAN RAMON, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/02/13 -- Tiburon, Inc., a portfolio company of The Gores Group and the leading provider of public safety software solutions, today announced that the City of Pasadena, Texas has signed a contract to continue its longstanding public safety partnership with Tiburon.
"After evaluating Tiburon's latest solutions and considering the benefits gained over our ten-year partnership, the City and Department are well positioned to safeguard the lives and liberties of our community," said Mr. Mariusz Kalinowski, Business Systems Analyst IV, at the City of Pasadena. "We are also very encouraged that dialogue between neighboring agencies, all utilizing Tiburon applications, has opened the door for near term information sharing and interoperability that is certain to enhance the prediction and resolution of crime in the regional community."
Details in the contract include upgrading the City Police Department's existing Tiburon public safety platform (CAD, Mobile, Law RMS, and Jail RMS) to the latest versions of each solution -- offering new features and capabilities to help the police department meet the growing demands for services. Tiburon solutions to be deployed include: Tiburon CAD; Tiburon Mobile, Tiburon Law Records (including a property room bar code module) and Tiburon Jail RMS (including a custom gang module). Interfaces to be deployed include: E-911, TDD, and CAD to Firehouse RMS Transfer, Fire Station Printing, EXT State, Time Synch and Paging.

"We are very excited to put the new capabilities to work for our Police Department to serve our City's citizens. One feature in particular is the flexibility in the Computer-Aided Dispatch System to manage how units are assigned during calls for service. The Resource and Capability-Based Unit Recommendations feature in Tiburon CAD will not only help the department manage operational resources more efficiently but provide more effective incident response," said Mr. Kalinowski.
