L-Tron’s 2014 Year In Review
The past year has been exciting for us, both personally and in business. At the top of our list, we welcomed two beautiful new grandbabies into our family! This past Thanksgiving, we had the privilege of celebrating with all 3 of our children, their spouses, and our 4 wonderful grandchildren. We truly are blessed!

On the business side of things, we were recognized by the Rochester Business Alliance and KPMG, being named #19 on the list of Top 100 businesses in the Greater Rochester, NY region – and we in turn honor the entire L-Tron team for a job well done!

Nationally, L-Tron also made the cut for Inc. 5000’s prestigious list of 2014 Fastest Growing Private Companies. Over the three year period from 2011 – 2013, L-Tron grew 46%! A heartfelt “thank you” to each of our customers, partners, and employees…We couldn’t have done it without you!

We enjoyed visiting with clients and partners from all over the country at numerous tradeshows this year, in addition to several global partner conferences. Most recently, we took part in Honeywell’s Partner Conference in Dallas as a nominee for Honeywell North America Partner of the Year, as well as Advantech’s World Partner Conference in Taipai as a Certified Partner for WebAccess + IoT Solutions.

Looking ahead to 2015, please take a few minutes to enjoy our video below.

Here’s to a Happy and Successful New Year!

Thank you for your continued business,
-RAD and Gayle DeRose

How Can Officers Benefit from eCitation?

By RAD DeRose

Traffic related incidents have been the leading cause of law enforcement line-of-duty deaths (LODDs) for many years. Though many measures have been put in place to mitigate this dramatic threat to officers’ life and safety, could more be done to promote scene safety while performing traffic stops?

According to 2011 International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Division of State and Provincial Police (S&P) research entitled, “Preventing Traffic Related Line-of-Duty Deaths,” law enforcement officers are four times more likely to be involved in a traffic collision than the average civilian motorist. In fact, 150 law enforcement officers were killed between 2000-2009, as a direct result of traffic-related incidents (60% of all officer deaths in that time period). Continue reading.
