RA'ANANA, Israel, April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced that the City of San Diego Public Utilities Department is implementing NICE Situator and NiceVison Net to help secure its water supply, following an order placed in 2012. San Diego is California's second largest city and the eighth largest in the U.S., with 1.3 million residents.

The integrated NICE Security portfolio will enable seamless, efficient, and centralized monitoring of 64 facilities operated by San Diego's Public Utilities Department, including administration buildings, laboratories, pump stations and filtration plants, as well as other sites that require security management, such as reservoirs and dams.
