An exceeding number of police departments and law enforcement agencies, whose officers spend upwards of 3-4 hours a day completing incident reports and other time-sensitive paperwork*, are turning to smarter tools, such as speech recognition solutions, to help transform their police reporting workflows.

Join us on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 at 2:00 PM ET to hear why these law enforcement professionals are embracing smarter tools to complete higher-quality reports and move mission-critical information within the CAD/RMS faster and more efficiently – all by voice.

This discussion will provide you with an understanding of:

  • What law enforcement has to say about current reporting processes
  • Why officers, especially recruits, want smarter tools to help with police paperwork
  • Why manual reporting has a negative impact on report accuracy and productivity and can hinder criminal proceedings
  • How departments can speed up data entry within the CAD/RMs and move mission-critical information more accurately and efficiently
  • How speech recognition technology can help increase officer safety and improve situational awareness and productivity on patrol
  • Why embracing smarter technology increases community visibility, and minimizes costs

Spillman's new Mobile 4.6 software
Spillman's new Mobile 4.6 software

In the last decade, law enforcement patrol vehicles have become more like high-tech offices than the old-fashioned prowl cars of the past. Today's officer has more technology in his or her patrol unit than astronauts had in the space shuttle. And like any high-tech office, the new patrol car cabin is built around the presence of a powerful computer.

We've written numerous articles on mobile computers here in POLICE Magazine over the years. They are the rock stars of police technology. They can survive drops and spills, and I've even seen the hard disk recovered from one after some scumbag shot at a cop with a .45 caliber pistol and put a round through the computer. But the truth is that without the right software and the right peripherals the most expensive, powerful, rugged police computer system is very much like a rock star, a rock star with no musical instrument and no microphone.

It would be difficult for anyone to devise a short summation of all of the capabilities of law enforcement software. These programs run the gamut from report writing spreadsheets to multiple database compilers that can alert officers to the backgrounds of dangerous people encountered during traffic stops. As for peripherals, just about any tool that is common to a computer network can now be miniaturized for use in a patrol car. There are citation printers, and fingerprint scanners, and a wide variety of other peripherals available.

Each year at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference and trade show peripheral manufacturers and software producers show their latest wares. The following is a look at some of the law enforcement market's most popular and useful software and computer peripherals. Our upcoming coverage of this year's IACP show will include additional software and peripherals.
