As we’ve previously discussed, TipNow is an anonymous reporting service that provides communities with a way to communicate concerns about individuals with the potential to commit violent acts in schools, government facilities, and the general public. Law enforcement agencies, school leadership, and officials have been working with TipNow to encourage individuals to share vital information that could prevent public tragedies from occurring.
When you undertake a public safety or security project, there’s a lot at stake - the safety of your community, protecting public property, and the ability to attract tax revenue via businesses and new residents. Therefore, you need to think very carefully about who you will partner with before starting your next project. In the world of public safety technology, who you work with makes a lot of difference in what you are able to do.

It’s not fun to think about actually using the public safety security solutions we implement for government agencies, but know what’s even worse? Needing them and not having them. The right public safety solution helps with everything from loitering to providing evidence in attempted murder cases. In today’s climate, these tools are necessary to help keep the public we protect safe. But what does that actually mean? Let’s outline four measurable benefits of implementing the right government safety security solution.
If you’re thinking about undertaking a new public safety security project, you know exactly how much is involved in getting funding, facilitating the implementation, and maintaining the technology once it’s been properly installed. It might seem like a huge undertaking and adding other departments into the mix might make a complicated process just that much worse. The truth is that with the right process in place, combining the power of multiple departments might actually be the best option for your next security project.
As we’ve mentioned before, public safety security solutions that leverage consultants frequently don’t work out the best for government agencies or the people they serve. It’s not a lack of good intention—most leaders and consultants really are trying to do their best. But the nature of the consultancy rarely meets expectations about the finished safety and security project.
