National Sheriffs’ Association Headquarters Uses Secured Communications’ Public Safety Communications Platform And Mercury Meeting Encrypted Videoconferencing System

Wednesday, September 2, 2020

The National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) is using Mercury Meeting, the secured encrypted videoconferencing platform powered by Secured Communications, LLC, for online conferencing and remote meeting operations. NSA approved Mercury Meeting for headquarters’ online and remote meeting use after a technical review and successful field trials. NSA has also entered into a partnership with Secured Communications to give Association members special access to both Mercury Meeting and Secured Communications’ encrypted public safety communications platform, Artemis, which includes secured messaging, audio calls and file sharing, at reduced cost as a public safety agency benefit.

Mercury Meeting is an encrypted high definition audio/video conferencing system with proprietary technologies to control the security and privacy of online meetings. Artemis is a secured encrypted messaging, voice, and file sharing platform specifically designed for public safety applications. Both platforms are powered by Secured Communications.

These two communications technologies can significantly benefit law enforcement agencies with the secured remote conferencing capability and 24/7 operational non-radio communications and information sharing. They also allow for on-demand intra- and inter-agency communications, including secured encrypted information sharing with other public safety, local government, and community stakeholders. 

Both of these encrypted communications solutions provided by Secured Communications are trusted by law enforcement, counterterrorism and public safety professionals worldwide to protect and streamline their most sensitive and urgent communications.

“Our partnership with Secured Communications will enable us to deliver another level of benefit to our membership while also expanding our ability to protect sensitive information during online meetings and other communications,” said Jonathan Thompson, NSA Executive Director and CEO. “Headquarters is already using Mercury Meeting and we look forward to introducing our members to both encrypted communications systems for their local agency applications.”
