North Carolina-based public safety technology vendor CivicEye has raised $12.4 million in a Series A funding round, money that will go toward meeting increased demand for the company’s cloud-based software.

The company, whose brand launched in 2022 (it was formerly Agisent Technologies), said in a statement that Cercano Management led the funding round, which also include Relevance Ventures and a “consortium of angel investors.”

CivicEye's customer base includes smaller and middle-sized police departments, district attorneys and “fusion centers” where law enforcement data is collected and analyzed.

“We’re excited to partner with Charlotte-based CivicEye and support its efforts to tackle issues in the public safety market,” said Stuart Nagae, partner at Cercano Management, in that statement. “The public safety sector has relied on legacy software for too long and needs modern, cloud-based technology.”

The fresh capital will go toward such areas as product development and winning new markets in the United States. The company also says it wants to “help reduce silos across municipal and state governments,” and further address needs of not only police but judges, court workers and other public safety professionals.

“Law enforcement agencies and prosecutors face a myriad of challenges daily,” said Khristian Gutierrez, CivicEye CEO, in that statement. “Their ability to fight crime on the street and in court is impacted by mounds of administrative tasks and a lack of transparent data-sharing across departments and other jurisdictions. The CivicEye platform exists to streamline workflows so officers and prosecutors can spend more time on what matters: making this country safer.”
