Harris acquires TCSC, expanding public safety portfolio with Forensic Advantage Systems platform
August 17, 2020

Harris, a global vertical market software provider and acquirer, expands its presence in the public safety sector by acquiring The Computer Solution Company of Virginia, LLC (TCSC) from Cherry Bekaert LLP, a nationally acclaimed public accounting and advisory firm. TCSC’s platform, Forensic Advantage Systems, provides integrated software modules for forensic laboratories and medical examiners/coroners.

Due to changing legislation and enhancements to forensic techniques, law enforcement agencies —including medical examiners, forensic, and general laboratories— require improved automation and enterprise-wide communications to manage growing backlogs. Blair Robinson, Executive Vice President, says, “Harris is pleased to welcome TCSC’s expertise and Forensic Advantage Systems solutions to our public safety portfolio. These solutions represent a natural extension of our public safety offerings to Federal and State agencies. We look forward to leveraging the combined expertise of the TCSC and Harris teams to support the company in its efforts to help these agencies tackle increased demand.”

For nearly two decades, TCSC has worked closely with law enforcement agencies on the design, implementation, and integration of numerous mission-critical applications. President, David Romig, II, adds, “We are excited to join a customer-focused organization that offers stability and growth to the companies it invests in, and we look forward to growing with them.”

As part of a publicly traded company, Constellation Software Inc. (TSX: CSU), Harris’ financial backing, software industry expertise, and public sector focus were important factors in finding a forever home to execute TCSC’s long-term growth strategies.
