Appriss Team Member Honored by Tennessee DOT Receives award for work to improve highway safety
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Sept. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Tim Bingham, Appriss' Tennessee Account Manager, has received the 2012 Lifesaver Award presented by the Governor's Highway Safety Office (GHSO), a division of the Tennessee Department of Transportation. Bingham was recognized for his "above and beyond commitment" to the state's Driving Under the Influence Tracker program, a program that improves the efficiency of collecting, tracking, and analyzing DUI cases. The award was presented at the annual Lifesaver Conference Luncheon earlier this month.
"The DUI Tracker project would not have been as successful without Tim's dedication, attention to detail and willingness to make changes on the fly," said GHSO Director Kendell Poole.
Bingham has also been instrumental in helping the Tennessee Department of Public Safety/Tennessee Highway Patrol implement a highly efficient and scalable statewide, centralized public safety solution — called TITAN — throughout the state. The Tennessee Integrated Traffic Analysis Network solution helps improve traffic and public safety by providing free software tools and services to law enforcement and other state agencies that make it easier and more efficient to collect, submit, retrieve, analyze, and share many types of information collected by law enforcement and other public safety personnel across the state.
Appriss keeps communities safe and informed by using innovate technology to provide a suite of products that: inform crime victims of an offender's status (VINE®); help police catch criminals (JusticeXchange); improve traffic safety and make crash reports available online (Buy Crash); and prevent the illegal sale of pseudoephedrine to help reduce the number of meth labs (NPLEx).
Appriss also provides smartphone apps for sheriffs' offices to help them communicate more effectively with their communities. The app is provided at no cost to sheriffs who offer VINE.
