  • TraCS (Traffic and Criminal Software), the nationally recognized and award winning public safety software, provides a total data collection and records management solution for public safety agencies of all sizes. The same software being used by thousands of public safety agencies and by tens of thousands of law enforcement and other public safety professionals throughout North America can be used by your state too at an affordable cost.
  • MACH (Mobile Architecture for Communications Handling) is a central communications hub that features CAD, APL, mobile dispatching, user to user messaging, cross agency collaboration for first responders, in-car mapping and display of other public safety units nearby, and state switch interface capabilities. MACH combined with TraCS provides a complete public safety solution.
