"An important aspect of a fire department is the ability to celebrate your traditions and still maintain the idea of innovation. PublicEye®, for us, is the most recent innovation we’ve had. It’s a technology that’s come at the right time."

Chief AchillesPortsmouth Fire

"With the iPad…[officers are] getting the information much quicker than they used to. This information is vital to the decisions they make so they can make fast, reliable, quick decisions at a moment’s notice."

Chief LavaleeLowell Police

"Anything that they needed to do remotely was all done from the device running through the PublicEye software. So this gave us an entire new dimension for the Boston Marathon that we never had before."

Officer WilderBrookline Police

"Our engine can move out, supported by turn-by-turn directions after just one touch on the 911 call object on the map. Before we get there, we can even see photos and videos of the fire Tweeted by the residents and the neighbors. I cannot overemphasize the value of having another jurisdiction’s information in the hands of our first responders."

Chief WigginBedford Fire

PublicEye Supports ESRI Maps

Not just for police, fire and EMS anymore

PublicEye now supports ESRI maps. This means that the cities can use maps customized by their GIS departments instead of the mobile OS supplied maps such as the Apple Maps.

PublicEye supports multiple ESRI maps that can be dynamically loaded into their phones or tablets by the first responders on an as needed basis. For example, in the case of a subway fire, a map of the city’s subway system can be loaded. This map could show nearest entry points, underground water resources, etc.

ESRI support is yet another feature that makes PublicEye useful to a whole new class of city workers beyond the traditional police, fire and EMS. Now the GIS, traffic enforcement, public works and other departments can benefit from easy access to maps they need in the field.
