Who We Serve
Cities, counties, and special districts share a duty to provide for their citizens and employees. This includes keeping people from harm at the hands of criminals in public spaces, preserving safety in the workplace, and protecting taxpayers’ assets from thieves. Government officials can count on ICU Technologies as a partner to design, develop and deploy the best security solutions. Further, ICU leads the industry through our GSA MAS contracts to streamline procurement and to provide for a true end-to-end partnership.
Law enforcement agencies are uniquely suited to lead communities toward a better future and provide a centralized hub for communication to the public and their government partners. For these reasons, public safety camera systems can give responders and detectives the information they need to be successful. This information can be analyzed to guide proactive efforts to stop crime before it occurs and provide effective evidence when crime does occur so criminals can be held accountable for their crimes.
Providing for the safety of children and educators in K-12 as well as the young people and employees in higher learning institutions represents a noble cause for school administrators and elected officials alike. ICU is proud of its proven history of partnering with education officials to protect our country’s future. ICU’s talent pool includes extensive experiences in numerous high-security federal facilities as well as many school projects from small to large. At ICU, we believe in our solutions and we are passionate about our role to keep kids safe!

California’s new AB-841 law created a grant program to make K-12 schools safer, but failed to address debilitating issues like staffing shortages and procurement hurdles. Learn what AB-841 requires and how, when applied properly, the law actually helps California public school districts address staffing and procurement issues while improving process efficiencies in the effort to create safer schools. We detail what a good technology partner should be doing for school districts, and how AB-841 not only helps to improve the air quality of schools, but also can help reduce crime.
Most organizations rely on the RFP process when purchasing technology solutions, but that process is exhausting, inefficient, expensive, and often results in outcomes that ultimately do not fix the problem the RFP was intended to improve. There is a better option: the GSA contract. This article explores three significant problems with RFPs and provides key reasons to consider the use of the GSA procurement process.
Procurement in public sector is not easy. Cumbersome processes more often lead to, sometimes, harmful results. The good news is there is a better way. In this article we review the issues that most public sector managers face in California state’s procurement process and we define some of the undesired results rooted in outdated, unproductive processes. Better yet, we define the purchasing vehicle that empowers government agencies with greater control and efficiencies, and show you how ICU can help.
"ICU came out and listened to our problems. After that, they showed us the new Avigilon analytics technology and how it could help our situation. They even suggested specific camera placement during the initial walk-through. It was a game-changer for us, and we were really impressed with what we saw."

“I’ve worked with ICU in the past and am familiar with their GSA/CMAS contract process which cuts through the red tape and makes purchasing and installation as streamlined as possible—especially in an emergency. In uncertain times, some companies might up their pricing, but partnering with companies like ICU which are GSA/CMAS contract holders, protects us as the pricing schedule is in place prior to the emergency and has been approved as being legal, reasonable and competitive.”
