NICE Solutions Are Deployed At U.S. Customs Center

The Air and Marine Operations Center (AMOC), the operational and domain awareness center for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Office of Air and Marine (OAM), has implemented NICE solutions to record and manage mission-critical voice communications used for investigations and debriefing.

As one of the world's largest aviation law enforcement organizations, the OAM's mission is to protect citizens and critical infrastructure by detecting, interdicting and preventing acts of terrorism and the unlawful movement of people, illegal drugs and contraband across U.S. borders. The AMOC supports this mission by monitoring more than 250 radar sources and tracking tens of thousands of air and marine movements daily. The AMOC relays surveillance information regarding potential threats to local law enforcement or other authorities who then intercept and investigate. Since mid-2011, AMOC has been using NICE solutions, including NiceLog and NICE Inform, to record, preserve, and manage critical communications from the tactical operations hub of the AMOC to local law enforcement and other agencies throughout the United States. The recordings are used to gather historical data, and for post event analysis to increase AMOC's readiness during similar events.

"We are pleased that our mission-critical systems, which are designed to address the security, safety, and operational risks of the largest law enforcement facilities, are now being implemented by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Air and Marine Operations Center," said Eric Hines, vice president of security at NICE, in a statement. "The capabilities of recording and investigating provide true value for organizations that need to analyze and assess incidents for learning, planning and future prevention."

The NICE Security Offering addresses the needs of governments and enterprises with intent-based solutions for fighting crime and terror, by anticipating, managing and mitigating safety, security, and operational risks. The solution enables capture, analysis, and correlation of data from multiple sensors and systems, including audio, video, radio, geo-location, and Web, providing a framework for fusing data silos into a single, holistic operational view. NICE Security solutions are deployed worldwide in transportation systems, critical infrastructures, city centers and enterprise campuses.
