City of Ontario, California Police and Fire Departments Deploy Tiburon Mobility Solution™ for the iPad® to Increase Situational Awareness in the Field

SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 9, 2013) - Tiburon, Inc., a portfolio company of The Gores Group and the leading provider of public safety software solutions, today announced that the City of Ontario, California Police and Fire Departments successfully deployed Tiburon's Mobility Solution for iPad®.

In late August, the City of Ontario Police and Fire leadership concluded several months of beta testing and installed their iPad's® with Tiburon's Mobility Solution software. Tiburon's state-of-the-art iPad mobility application allows the Ontario Police and Fire Chiefs to monitor in real time the active calls and unit activity from virtually anywhere. In addition, this first phase of deployment provided administrative staff with the same information available to mobile units with Tiburon MobileCOM installed on in-vehicle computers. In the future, the City plans to deploy iPads to their Inspectors and Detectives in the field for self-initiating non-emergency stops, effectively reducing their radio traffic, and allowing the 9-1-1 Communications Center to improve tracking of these officers in the field.

Tiburon's Mobility Solution for Tablet Computers includes iPad®, Android and Windows 8 tablets, so agencies can select the type of low cost mobile devices that best suit their IT infrastructure and future mobility plans. These applications provide more options for agencies wanting to increase situational awareness in the field and give first responders the ability to interact in real-time with their Tiburon Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) system. The software allows the users to make direct NCIC and other queries using FIPS-compliant encryption to access state, local, and federal databases. The devices can be seamlessly integrated with Tiburon's Law and Fire RMS systems as well and offer integrated mapping, priors, alerts and many other functions critical to maintaining situational awareness and safety.

The City of Ontario is located just east of Los Angeles, California and has been a Tiburon client since 1996. They provide service for 166,390 residents over 50 square miles and receive approximately 154,000 calls a year for the 230 sworn police officers and 136 firemen that keep the citizens of Ontario safe.

"Tiburon was the first CAD company to offer an iPad solution to the market because we recognized the budget challenges that agencies are facing and tablet computers combined with the Tiburon Mobility Solution offers a substantially better use of resources than a traditional laptop solution. Agencies want to increase situational awareness by bringing the power of total mobility to all public safety and security professionals in the field," said Cliff Micham, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at Tiburon.
