Public Safety

Public safety technology is advancing faster than ever. Evaluating and managing advances in 911, IP-based telephony, radio, call center design, computer aided dispatch, records management systems, and mobile applications can be overwhelming. This coupled with tight budgets and even tighter time availability means there is no room for errors. Your staff needs up-to-date technology to take care of their business safely and quickly the first time.

Elert & Associates has assembled a team of professionals with decades of expertise in both public safety operations and public safety technology. E&A’s consultants provide our client partners with a wide range of services, including evaluations, business process reviews, current system assessments, bid development, purchasing evaluations, and project management.

Our consultants pull all of this together and create a plan that works by listening, discussing options, sharing knowledge, reaching a consensus, and then creating a design with budgetary costs – moving forward with you as a partner. Since 1984, we’ve helped hundreds of organizations like yours with their technology.

Elert & Associates will provide unbiased answers to make informed decisions about your public safety needs. Our team is ready to help. Our consultants are unbiased, and our services are vendor- and manufacturer-independent, allowing for an honest and open procurement process via a Request for Bid (RFB) or Request for Proposal (RFP).
