COVID-19 Response

CentralSquare: Supporting Public Safety Agencies

Public safety and frontline government workers face immense pressure to educate and inform the public as communities navigate COVID-19. Restrictions around person-to-person interactions further complicate relief efforts, leading first responders and public safety officers to look to new communication methods.

CentralSquare is helping ensure the critical lines of communication between first responders, public servants and citizens remain open. The Company is offering complimentary use of select software solutions to its more than 5,000 public safety customers through December 1, 2020.

These solutions include CentralSquare P2C, which allows citizens to communicate directly with law enforcement agencies, and Digital Evidence Management System, which enables officers to manage the storage of digital evidence from video cameras, cell phones and other devices. This software and a variety of other mobile applications help reduce person-to-person interaction for first responders and public servants. They also help agencies share resources more easily and allow personnel to work seamlessly from remote locations.
