Val Verde County and M2M Spectrum Networks, LLC Partner to Protect Vital Law Enforcement Assets

Del Rio, TX – October 21, 2014 – The Val Verde County Sheriff’s Office has taken a critical step toward strengthening the security of its vehicles, officers and law enforcement equipment by partnering with technology and telecommunications industry leader M2M Spectrum Networks, LLC to deploy leading edge asset tracking tools.

Under a pilot agreement approved by the Val Verde Commissioners Court, M2M will outfit Sheriff’s Office vehicles at no cost with exclusive hardware that can allow Sheriff’s personnel to track the vehicle and its contents’ movement and location at any time, a vital tool in the Texas border region. M2M Spectrum Networks also looks forward to adding other vendors to the pilot.

“We’re excited to partner with Sheriff Joe Frank Martinez to ensure that his team and the citizens of Val Verde County have at their disposal best in class tools that will ensure their law enforcement assets don’t fall into the wrong hands,” said M2M Spectrum Networks CEO Barclay Knapp. “We are confident that this pilot test will demonstrate that law enforcement agencies can maintain command and control over their most valuable property with state-of-the-art technology that delivers a good deal for taxpayers.”

Sheriff Martinez said his office is excited to get started with the new partnership.

“Public-private partnerships such as what we are engaging in with M2M Spectrum Networks assist the county in evaluating new technologies while giving our officers added situational awareness to protect our citizens,” Martinez said. “We are happy to support these types of pilot programs that not only help the citizens of Val Verde, but that will highlight capabilities that are essential on the border.”

The pilot approved by county commissioners is slated to last at least 18 months and will be conducted at no cost to the county.
