AlertID, the leader in making the country’s public safety information universally accessible, today announced that it has moved its corporate headquarters to Switch’s InNEVation Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

AlertID provides mobile and online public safety information services dedicated to helping people protect their families and communities. Alerts are provided by trusted sources including public safety agencies, local law enforcement, schools, neighborhood groups, neighbors, family members and friends, all at no cost to members. This first-of-its-kind, fast-growing network is the leader in helping people protect their families and communities throughout the United States and is poised to evolve into the world’s go-to public safety and security resource.
“AlertID is a great addition to The inNEVation Center,” said Richard Ethington, General Manager of the inNEVation Center. “AlertID is a Nevada company that is helping people protect their families and communities across the country, and we encourage everyone to take advantage of this incredible technology.”
“We are excited to become a part of Switch’s InNEVation Center. The inNEVation Center is the realization of Rob Roy’s (Switch’s Founder and CEO) vision to bring innovative companies, public organizations and the most advanced business technology ecosystems together in one location,” said Ken Wiles, AlertID’s Chief Executive Officer. “Switch’s inNEVation Center offers a unique, collaborative environment that will become the epicenter of technology development.”
