January 17, 2019

HOBOKEN, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 17, 2019--NICE (Nasdaq: NICE)  today announced that it has opened nominations for the  2019 PSAPs’ Finest Awards, an annual recognition program for emergency communications professionals now in its fourteenth year. Awards are presented each year in the following categories: DirectorLine SupervisorTechnician, Trainer, Telecommunicator, Innovator, and PSAP of the Year.

Since its inaugural year, the PSAPs’ Finest Awards program has recognized dozens of deserving public safety communications professionals. Candidates for the PSAPs’ Finest Awards are evaluated by an independent judging panel, based on their professionalism, accomplishments, and service to their communities.

“With so many changes underway in emergency communications, there has never been a more challenging or rewarding time to be a public safety communications professional,” said Chris Wooten, Executive Vice President, NICE. “Whether it’s the telecommunicators on the front lines, the emergency technicians in the back room, the CTOs who selflessly devote their time to training others, the innovators who find better ways to get things done, or PSAP team-members and leaders who pull together in difficult situations, all are vital to ‘answering the call.’ Through our sponsorship of the PSAPs’ Finest Awards, NICE is shining a light on those who dedicate themselves to this worthy profession.”

Each year, executives from the 911 community (some of whom have been recognized with PSAPs’ Finest Awards in prior years), volunteer to serve on the PSAPs’ Finest Judging Panel. This year’s judges include: Captain Scott L. Brillman, Acting 911 Director, City of Baltimore Maryland (Baltimore City Fire Department); Anita Pitt, 9-1-1 Program Manager, Brazos Valley Council of Governments (Bryan, TX); Matt Groesser, Emergency Communications Center Manager, Kent County Sheriff’s Office (Grand Rapids, MI); Shawn Shear, Communications Center Manager, Thornton 9-1-1 Emergency Communications Center (Thornton, CO); Dina Walker, E911 Program Manager, Seminole County (FL) 911 Administration; and Virginia (Ginny) Smelser, Executive Director, Sullivan County 911 (Blountville, TN).

The PSAPs’ Finest Awards Program is open to all PSAPs, whether or not they are customers of NICE. To submit a nomination for the PSAPs’ Finest awards or read about previous winners, please visit the PSAPs’ Finest website.  Nominations can be submitted on-line through June 1, 2019.
