Tyler Technologies launches app for first responders

Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) has announced that its New World ShieldForceâ„¢ mobile application is now available for first responders, command staff, and patrol officers through the IOSâ„¢ platform, with plans to expand availability of the app to the Androidâ„¢ platform in spring 2019, the company said.

New World ShieldForce makes real-time and mission-critical data for public safety agencies available instantly, ultimately improving their situational awareness and overall safety. New World ShieldForce features a familiar user interface and native design and provides a vital connection between patrol officers, dispatchers, and command staff by extending computer-aided dispatch (CAD) functionality onto a smartphone, tablet, or watch.

ShieldForce also allows CAD functionality and communication to be extended into the field. Officers can focus on specific critical details while providing crucial information into the call for service to aid other responders and dispatchers. Responders and dispatchers can benefit from having the ability to visually track the location of officers, detectives, and other personnel who don´t traditionally have laptops or mobile data terminals.
