City of San Jose Police Department to Implement NICE Security Solution, NICE Inform, for its Communications Center

May 14, 2009

RA’ANANA, Israel, May 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — NICE Systems (NASDAQ:
NICE), the global provider of advanced solutions that enable organizations to
extract Insight from Interactions to drive performance, today announced that
the Police Department for the City of San Jose, the tenth most populous U.S.
city and the third largest city in the State of California, has decided to
implement NICE Inform and other NICE solutions to enhance handling of
critical calls at its communications center. The center handles approximately
one million emergency and non-emergency calls each year. All of those calls,
and the Department’s radio communications, will be captured, retained,
reviewed and analyzed using NICE solutions.

The San Jose Police Department has a reputation for achieving results
through technological innovation. San Jose was among the first big cities in
the U.S. to make use of electronic citations. San Jose also broke new ground
as the first American city to make 911 calls available in near real-time
online. Now, with NICE Inform, San Jose will be able to rely on the new
technology from NICE to efficiently handle high volumes of evidence
reproduction requests and ensure call quality.

San Jose’s records custodians receive dozens of evidence reproduction
requests a day – from District Attorneys and other interested parties. The
NICE Inform multimedia incident information management solution will enable
the San Jose Police Department to seamlessly reconstruct incidents from 911,
dispatch and radio recordings, and other multimedia information. The
reconstructions can then be securely organized and stored in electronic
incident folders for future reference. San Jose’sNICE solution also features
parallel recorders and multiple storage devices for dual recording of
critical emergency communications, and NICE’s quality management application
which will be integral to San Jose’s innovative quality assurance program.

NICE is proud to announce its new relationship with the City of San Jose
Police Department,” said Chris Wooten, President of the Security Division in
NICE Americas. “The NICE solutions will help the San Jose Police Department
enhance their incident investigations, evidence reproductions and quality
assurance processes to help improve safety and security for the citizens of
San Jose.”

NICE Inform is the world’s first full-spectrum multimedia incident
information management solution for the security market. It provides
ground-breaking capabilities for effectively managing incident information
from various sources, including audio, video, text and data, streamlining
information-sharing, investigations and evidence delivery. The capabilities
of NICE Inform also enable agencies and command and control centers to move
beyond simply capturing voice communications to centrally capturing and
managing many different types of multimedia information central to
investigations, such as video, mug shots, affidavits and incident reports.
The unique comprehensive capabilities of NICE Inform can be tailored to the
specific needs of command and control centers for first responders and
homeland security, transportation, government, and private sector
organizations, and deliver improved collaboration and operational efficiency
to enhance safety and security.

NICE Systems will be demonstrating NICE Inform and other NICE public
safety solutions in booth #108 at the upcoming NENA 2009 Conference and
Tradeshow taking place June 6 through June 11, 2009 in Fort Worth, Texas.
