NICE is pleased to announce that NICE Public Safety has been named a Multi-Award Winner in the 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards for Best Investigation and 911 Center Solution categories.
Sponsored by American Security Today, the ‘ASTORS’ Awards recognize outstanding product development achievements and exciting new technologies that support law enforcement agencies, first responders, and other government entities in their mission to keep cities and communities safe and secure.
NICE E-Request received a 2021 Platinum Award in the Best 911 Center Solution category, and NICE Investigate was named the Platinum Award recipient in the Best Investigation Solution category.
This is the sixth consecutive year that NICE’s digital transformation solutions have been recognized with ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards.
“We’re very honored that our public safety solutions have been recognized by the ‘ASTORS’ awards for the sixth consecutive year,” explained Chris Wooten, Executive Vice President, NICE.
“Under increasing budget, resource, and time constraints, our public safety customers are facing growing emergency call volumes and case backlogs, and new technologies are generating more data they have to contend with, every day.”
“Our digital transformation solutions, including E-Request and NICE Investigate, help them work more efficiently to discover and disclose evidence, build cases and get to the truth faster.”
NICE E-Request: Best 911 Center Solution
NICE E-Request was recognized for its ability to help emergency communication centers ensure timely disclosure of 911 audio evidence through automation.
Handling 911 evidence requests is a time-consuming, but essential, function of every 911 center.
E-Request digitally transforms how emergency communications centers receive and process 911 audio evidence requests and share incident information with district attorneys, police investigators, and other key stakeholders.

E-Request automates the end-to-end request and delivery workflow to accelerate request fulfillment, improve transparency, ensure timely disclosure of evidence and free up resources.
E-Request also delivers new-found efficiencies to police detectives by enabling trusted users to directly access 911 audio as they work on investigations.
Additionally, with the E-Request mobile app, officers are able to access and listen to 911 calls when they are dispatched to an incident.
NICE Investigate: Best Investigation Solution
NICE also took home top honors in the Best Investigation Solution category for NICE Investigate, a comprehensive, scalable, CJIS-compliant, cloud-based solution that transforms how law enforcement and justice agencies manage investigations and digital evidence.

NICE Public Safety Takes Double Platinum in 2021 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program
American Security Today’s Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, and now in its Sixth Year, continues to recognize industry leaders of Physical and Border Security, Cybersecurity, Emergency Preparedness – Management and Response, Law Enforcement, First Responders, as well as federal, state and municipal government agencies in the acknowledgment of their outstanding efforts to Keep our Nation Secure.
Best 911 Recording & Analytics
E-Request from NICE is a new cloud-based solution in the Evidencentral platform that supports timely disclosure of 911 audio evidence through automation.
As disclosure laws mandate stricter deadlines for reproducing and sharing 911 audio recordings and other evidence, agencies across the public safety and criminal justice continuum are struggling to keep up with requests using current manual processes.
E-Request digitally transforms how emergency communications centers (ECCs) receive and process 911 audio evidence requests and share incident information with district attorneys, police investigators, and other key stakeholders.
NICE’s e-Request works with NICE’s existing recording solution (NICE Inform) to address this challenge, by ensuring timely disclosure of 911 audio evidence through automation.
Best Investigation/ Surveillance/Detection
Today, police departments have a “big data” problem, and crime solving hinges on digital evidence.
But there’s so much data coming from so many silos that it’s becoming increasingly difficult for investigators to ingest it, correlate it and absorb the relevant facts of a case.
The NICE Investigate Digital Investigation and Digital Evidence Management Software (DEMS) Solution which automates the entire digital investigation and evidence management process, helping investigators close more cases faster.
