Great things are happening at Genesis! First of all, we have proudly unveiled our latest revolutionary product: Genesis eBonds. eBonds is a secure, web-based system that integrates relevant jail data into an automated bail bond application which simplifies the entire paperless bond process for jail personnel and bail bond agencies from beginning to end.
Leading the charge for our new eBonds product is this little ray of sunshine, Christi McDowell! We are beyond excited that Christi has joined the Genesis Group as eBonds Director of Sales! She brings over 13 years of experience working in many capacities for the Smith County Sheriff’s office, including jail, CID, evidence, and Crime Scene Investigation. She has a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice & Psychology and is close to completing her master’s degree in Public Administration. Her family and a love for life are what fuel her infectious smile.
We are excited to announce that James Wansley has been promoted to the PULSE and eBonds Product Owner role at Genesis. James has more than 20 years of experience as a Public Safety Software Developer at Genesis and is a certified Professional Scrum Master. James is an active volunteer in his community — previously serving as the President of the Whitehouse ISD Education Foundation and currently serving as Mayor Pro Tempore on the City of Whitehouse Council.

Tyler, TX, May 1, 2020: The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the need for alternative means of funding for Public Safety agencies. The Genesis Group today announced the launch of their Grant Assistance Program, offering free grant services for those agencies. Genesis has partnered with Lexipol, a leading provider of policy and training solutions for fire and rescue, corrections, and law enforcement to deliver these services. The Genesis Grant Assistance Program provides support to find and apply for grants with the help of expert coaching throughout the entire process.
“We understand that navigating through the grant application process is challenging and time-consuming and that our customers might not have the resources to dedicate to finding grant money in the current environment,” says Jim Nipp, President of The Genesis Group. “We’re pleased to provide these agencies with the option to lean on Genesis for free grant assistance services during these trying times.”
Tyler, TX, April 15, 2020: Genesis PULSE® announced today its “Potential COVID-19” response feature, a new addition to its CAD enhancement software solution. The ability for PULSE to automatically pull pandemic response information from any CAD without adding extra steps to the dispatch workflow ensures that displayed information is timely and accurate. This “Potential COVID-19” response feature enables first responder agencies to track possible community spread in their area, making it simple for public safety agencies and government entities to have access to this critical information on one map, in real-time.
Since we launched our monthly series of webinars, our mission has always been to provide our valued customers with “in demand” content that brings awareness to, increases usage of, and most importantly maintains a high return on investment from the GenWatch3 software. With that said, we are going to cancel our December session in order to review what worked and what can improve so we kick off 2020 strong!
Thank you for your participation and support of these webinars over the past year. From the entire Genesis Family to yours, we hope you have a happy and healthy holiday season!Read more
There is so much the GenWatch3 software can do, it’s no wonder some functionality might fall under the radar. We will cover a few of these “underutilized” enhancements; some of which can integrate with existing applications to share information with other applications and/or the radio system. These features might even reduce the need for application upgrades. Please join us so we can introduce you to these small, yet mighty, solutions!
Tyler, TX, October 27, 2019 — Genesis PULSE – a revolutionary, cloud-hosted CAD enhancement solution – and RapidSOS – the trusted platform for connecting additional IoT data to public safety – announced today that Genesis PULSE has achieved RapidSOS Platinum Integration Partner status, one of only three companies to achieve the Platinum level.

Advancing the partnership between Genesis PULSE and RapidSOS removes the guesswork for dispatchers in locating 9-1-1 callers and sending the fastest, most appropriate resources to the scene. Read more
