PublicEngines Named to Inc. 500 List of Fastest-Growing Private U.S. Companies.

Rapid Growth Attributed to Innovative Law Enforcement Technology  

We are really excited to announce that PublicEngines has been recognized by Inc. magazine as one of the fastest growing private companies in the U.S. with reported growth of more than 1,247 percent! We’re blown away by the revolution that has taken place within the 5 years since the launch CrimeReports.com. In all, more than 2,500 law enforcement agencies, school districts, and nonprofit organizations worldwide have adopted at least one of our platforms. Astonishing.

The Inc. 500 list ranked PublicEngines as the fourth fastest growing company in the security category and 297th fastest growing private company in the country.

We’d like to congratulate all of our customers. You believed in us to deliver what you needed even when we were a whole lot smaller and totally unproven. In complete honesty, you deserve more recognition then I’m sure you get for your desire to be more open and communicative with the people you serve and willingness to adopt new technologies that help accomplish those goals. You took a big risk. Thank You.

William Kilmer, CEO of PublicEngines, notes  “Moving forward, law enforcement agencies can expect PublicEngines to deliver a robust set of solutions with new capabilities that will continue making their jobs easier and their communities safer.”
