Public-safety consulting firm Mission Critical Partners (MCP) completed its acquisition of Athena Advanced Networks. MCP said the acquisition strengthens its IT and managed services offering and its service portfolio and presence in key geographic locations and markets.

“Athena brings a broad understanding of IT that will enhance our ability to offer a holistic, third-party view of the entire public-safety ecosystem, something our clients have been asking us to provide for some time,” said Kevin Murray, MCP CEO. “Together, we share common core values and a deep commitment to helping our respective clients achieve their goals of improving emergency response outcomes.”

Since 2009, Athena has provided specialized IT services in more than 25 states for more than 100 public-safety agencies. Athena will strengthen MCP’s goal of providing clients with greater visibility and control of their IT infrastructure and networks while enhancing MCP’s expertise in maintaining and supporting CAD and records management systems (RMS), as well as mobile applications.

“Becoming part of a larger managed services organization is a logical next step for Athena,” said Bruce Kelling, Athena chairman. “The integration with MCP provides an opportunity for Athena to combine its IT expertise with the broad array of services offered by MCP to provide our highly respected clients with the most comprehensive managed services programs available. We are excited about joining the MCP team in order to continue to support our public-safety clients and expand our technology programs to serve a broader client base.”

With the addition of Athena staff members, MCP now employs 115 professionals dedicated to modernizing the nation’s aging public-safety infrastructure.
