Rochester, NY - April 20, 2009 - Pictometry International Corp. was honored by City of Rochester and Monroe County officials April 15 for providing the technology the City’s 9-1-1 call center uses daily to reach people in need.
The award was presented to company leaders during the City’s Emergency Communications Department Annual Awards Ceremony, an event scheduled to coincide with National Telecommunicators Week (April 13-17).
