Irving, TX – December 12, 2008 – EF Johnson Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: EFJI) announced today that it has begun operational use of the video surveillance system it sold to the City of Norfolk, Virginia. The system utilizes the company’s secure FIPS 140-2 Validated™ broadband access points and integrates Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) camera technology for first responders in the city.

“We have live feeds on the air now, and our rugged, secure FIPS 140-2 Validated™ broadband access points are transmitting secure video signals that can be watched by key personnel on the City of Norfolk’s network,” said Michael Jalbert, president and chief executive officer of EF Johnson Technologies, Inc. “Our solution is a force multiplier that enables Norfolk police to monitor the streets live from laptops in their patrol cars or at headquarters. We are pleased to provide the City with a solution that will help it protect and save the lives of its citizens.” The cameras play a major role in what the City is calling their Project Focus program, which is aimed at stopping crime in some Norfolk neighborhoods, Jalbert added.
