Verizon Receives Public Safety Corporate Vital Link Award From Montgomery County, Maryland

LAUREL, Md., March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Each year since 1974, the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce recognizes the police and law enforcement officers, firefighters, rescue personnel and Department of Corrections employees who dedicate their lives to protecting the people and property of Maryland's most populated county. In addition to honoring individual members of the public safety community for their valor and service, the Chamber also recognizes a private-sector business for its role in helping a public safety agency transform and advance its mission to meet 21 st-century challenges. 

This year's recipient of the Public Safety Corporate Vital Link Award is Verizon.  The company was nominated by Montgomery County Sheriff Darren Popkin for its contributions and partnerships with public safety and for its support of the Montgomery County Family Justice Center.

Mike Maiorana, Verizon Wireless regional president noted, "As the son of a police officer, I have extreme respect and personal understanding of the sacrifices you who are charged with ensuring our safety and security make every day.  We're proud to put our technologies and solutions to work for Montgomery County to help keep citizens safe."

Since the Montgomery County Family Justice Center (MCFJC) first opened in 2009, Verizon has contributed innovative technologies to help enhance victim safety and improve communications.  Among the technology solutions that Verizon has donated to the MCFJC is videoconferencing equipment that connects domestic violence victims who visit the Center with judges in the county courthouse.  As a result of this technology, victims have been able to receive protective orders more quickly and from the safety, security and comfort of the center, thus reducing the number of places a victim has to travel to for services and eliminating the possibility of having to face her abuser in court.  The MCFJC reports that this technology has saved lives and transformed the way the court system handles the issuing of initial Protective Orders.
