The Technology Behind PursuitAlert
PursuitAlert leverages the tools and technologies we carry with us every day to simply save lives.
“We can now alert our citizens when they enter an area of a high-speed pursuit. That not only improves their safety but increases the safety of our officers as well.”
Sheriff, Oconee County SC
Using PursuitAlert as an OFFICER
The PursuitAlert notification is activated by the responding patrol unit. The officer will trigger the system through installed hardware mounted in the patrol car as standard, single DIN control units. The officer can enable and cancel the alert.
A proprietary contraband marking system is included with PursuitAlert that allows dispatch to retrieve map-based markers of where contraband may have been tossed out the window throughout the pursuit.
Getting Notified as a Citizen
Download and Forget!
PursuitAlert only requires the one-time action of downloading the PursuitAlert App for your device. Once done, the user will receive the notifications automatically whenever they enter the range of a pursuit. This service will be in effect for any participating state, county or municipal law enforcement agency in the U.S. Thus, the service will continue to work as the user passes through various participating territories around the country.
