Law Enforcement Division
Our dedicated Law Enforcement Division provides training and ongoing support to police agencies in connection with the installation of our tracking solutions within local jurisdictions. Comprised of active and retired law enforcement officers, this division along with our 24/7 Service and Support center makes our tracking solution second to none.
If our tracking system detects a robbery, local police dispatchers are alerted immediately; they can then notify officers in the field about the device’s location and movements. Police can also directly access the tracking information and pursue criminals from a safe distance…thus avoiding the inherent dangers of high-speed chases or any direct encounter with criminals. Because we personally train every law enforcement agency who will utilize our technology, dispatchers and officers are familiar with our tracking solution and know that their response to a robbery event is most likely to be effective and appropriate. All required training and related support are supplied to police departments at no cost.
Over 7,000 Law Enforcement agencies across the globe utilize 3SI technology to protect their communities against crime. These police partnerships are key to the 3SI mission to help reduce crime and catch criminals. The U.S. law-enforcement community is enthusiastic about 3SI tracking, and as more law enforcement professionals are made aware of it and are trained in its use, our system’s applications continue to grow. Law Enforcement agencies themselves are increasingly becoming 3SI customers, integrating the tracking solution for tactical use in property crime situations with our Electronic Stake Out® (ESO) Solution.
For over 45 years, 3SI has been strongly committed to the research and development of our products. This continuous investment in R&D laid the foundation for 3SI’s success today, providing the broadest range of high-tech security solutions in the market from a single supplier.
Our R&D Department is organized to both continually improve current products and look ahead to anticipate future customer and market needs. They accomplish these goals through the following groups:

New Product Development
Customers and commercial professionals continuously ask for different solutions to solve the many unique problems they encounter. In addition, because our R&D teams know our markets and customers so well, we work proactively to anticipate upcoming needs and develop solutions ahead of market demand.
