HigherGround Secures Patent From USPTO For Live911

Live911 allows officers to hear emergency 9-1-1 calls from their vehicles in real time, providing a more complete understanding of the situation

Los Angeles, CA /PRNewswire/ - HigherGround, a developer of solution-based software that captures, stores, and retrieves telecommunications, location, and radio data, announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued a new patent, No.11,206,327, further strengthening the Company's intellectual property for its Live911 technology.

Live911 is a first-ever solution to securely livestream 9-1-1 emergency calls directly to authorized officers in the field and present precise GPS map location of the caller. Since the product's launch in 2020, deployments of Live911 have been improving efficiencies at Police Departments and Sheriff's Offices across America.
