The Riverside Company, a global private investor focused on the smaller end of the middle market, has signed a definitive agreement with GTCR to sell Lexipol, a provider of policy management, training and wellness software for public safety organizations and local government customers. The proposed transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of this year, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
Lexipol’s technology has helped law enforcement agencies, correctional facilities and fire departments reduce litigation risk and improve operational efficiency. Lexipol combines a proprietary SaaS-based platform with continuously updated digital policy manual content, a comprehensive digital training course library, and wellness resources to help agencies stay ahead of litigation trends, maintain best practices and ensure that first responders are trained and fit to serve their communities.
“We are proud of the work we have done with Lexipol. During our partnership, we invested significantly in the technology and content to create the best offering in the marketplace to solve mission critical challenges for our customers,” said Riverside Managing Partner Loren Schlachet. “Lexipol is a special business that provides first responders, public safety and local government agencies the tools they need to meet compliance standards and keep their agency members and the communities they serve safe.”
Riverside added Praetorian Digital to Lexipol in 2019, Cordico in 2020 and The Rodgers Group in 2021. These three acquisitions expanded Lexipol’s range of solutions by adding online training, digital behavioral wellness resources and additional policy and accreditation capabilities.
