WAYNE, PA--(Marketwire - Feb 20, 2013) -  Metro Technology Services, Inc., leading provider of public safety software solutions to agencies in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, today announced the celebration of its 30th year in business. Founded in 1983, the company continues to focus on providing the law enforcement community with innovative software solutions.

"Public safety technology has come a long way since we founded the company in 1983," said Tony Iannacone, founder and president of Metro Technology. "The first release of our law enforcement-specific software was in the 1980s and was called ALERT® and was the foundation of the comprehensive Visual Alert® solution that public safety agencies across Pennsylvania and New Jersey are using today. We are proud to have retained many customers from the early days, as they have been integral in providing feedback to us to help us develop solutions that truly fit their specific needs. Our 30th anniversary is a significant milestone and we look forward to continuing to develop software solutions that enable law enforcement agencies to better serve their communities."

The stability and value Metro Technology is able to offer public safety agencies is evident in its long-time relationships with its customers. The Pennsylvania police agencies of Doylestown Borough Police Department, Easttown Township Police and Upper Southampton Township were Metro Technology's first ALERT users in the 1980s, and are still leveraging the power of the software today. There are 18 agencies that have been using what is now Visual Alert for their records management for more than 20 years and 248 agencies have been using Metro's software solutions for more than a decade.
