SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 6, 2013) - Tiburon, Inc., a portfolio company of The Gores Group and the leading provider of public safety software solutions, today announced that Public Safety Communications (PSC), the official magazine of the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International, selected Tiburon Analytics as a 2013 Hot Product.
The Tiburon Analytics suite includes the low-cost Public Edition for citizen-accessible, web-based analysis and mapping of crime and calls-for-service data; the mid-range Agency Edition offering more sophisticated analysis of an expanded set of the same data suitable for a variety of public safety and security personnel; and the Professional Edition targeted primarily at the professional crime analyst. The product suite is rounded out by a series of Report Packs consisting of already-designed dashboard, tabular and analytical reports suitable for various types of agency personnel and by Tiburon Academy educational offerings on a variety of topics relating to crime and calls-for-service analysis.
Hot Products was established as an annual editorial program by APCO International and Public Safety Communications in 2007. During the APCO Conference in Anaheim, California, an anonymous editorial review team made up of public safety communications professionals specifically examine new products submitted for review. After the conference, reviews are compiled and discussed, and the editor and the APCO Editorial Advisory Committee selected Tiburon Analytics among the best new products of 2013. This year, 52 companies submitted 69 products for consideration in the Hot Product review and the winners will be featured in the November issue of Public Safety Communications magazine.
