SAN RAMON, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/21/13 --
Tiburon, Inc., a portfolio company of The Gores Group and the leading provider of public safety software solutions, today announced that Jonathan Huberman, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, was named to the Board of Directors of the IACP Foundation, an international nonprofit led by a Board of Officers who are dedicated to providing real, meaningful support to law enforcement officers and agencies across the globe.
As a private sector member, Mr. Huberman joins a distinguished group of individuals led by Co-Chair's George Heinrichs, founder of Intrado and Bart Johnson, IACP Executive Director, and Treasurer Chief Dwight Henninger and 13 other respected board members that reflect a rich blend of committed private sector partners and police executives. The mission of the IACP Foundation is to support injured and fallen officers and their families, protect the safety of officers, and support the goals and programs of the IACP. Tens of thousands of law enforcement officers are injured or disabled every year. Many of those injuries, including felonious assaults against officers, are predictable and preventable.

Joining the IACP Foundation is not only a great personal honor, but an extraordinary opportunity to further Tiburon's commitment to the public safety community," said Jonathan Huberman, President and CEO at Tiburon.
"We are pleased to have Jonathan Huberman join the IACP Foundation Board of Directors," said Bart Johnson, IACP Executive Director and Co-Chair of the IACP Foundation. "We believe that Mr. Huberman, and the work he has done through Tiburon, will help strengthen the mission of the Foundation to protect and provide safety to officers and to support our injured or fallen officers and their families. On behalf of the Board, we look forward to the private sector expertise that Mr. Huberman will bring."
