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.

Thursday, December 6, 2018 -- 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Narrowband Land Mobile Radio (LMR) networks and user radio equipment have been the cornerstone of mobile communications for First Responders for decades. The trend from traditional analog to more robust wireless broadband networks in recent years has improved the overall accessibility but questions remain on whether the new networks can provide all the required capabilities First Responders need to do their job.

Increasing demand for bandwidth intensive applications such as video, advanced mapping and analytics, alongside critical voice communications has been driving adoption of broadband LTE cellular networks, such as FirstNet.

Join our panel of industry experts for this insightful 60-minute webinar as they discuss the critical differences between LMR networks and LTE networking, how these technologies can successfully co-exist, and explore the future of critical communications for First Responders.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Current and future industry trends for LTE and LMR technologies
  • Challenges and obstacles with the convergence of technologies
  • Real-life examples of successful hybrid communication strategies for First Responders
  • Recommendations for future proofing your agency; adoption of new technologies and how to bridge the gap

Super.

Cameras on our guns. How 'bout an ACLU attorney in one pocket and Rev. Al in the other?

How does a camera properly document what the officer sees and perceives? Great for a mid day shootout perhaps but what about in the middle of the night? It is a one dimensional "tool" at best.

A camera will never be a "see all/answer all" for a deadly force encounter...hopefully this "idea" will go the way of the automatic kill switches in everybody's cars...it will fade away quietly.

When are we as police officers going to quit allowing these legislative clowns forcing technology down our throats that is nothing more than someone saying "we don't trust the police."
Every time someone comes up with this stuff and claims that it will stop complaints, it will verify what the officer writes in his/her report they are saying police officers have no integrity.
Maybe stuff has changed in the 30 yrs since I started but, I was drilled that an officer's integrity was unquestioned and if you screwed it up you were worthless as a cop. Now we have depts and politicians telling us we have to have cameras in our cars. We can't get a felony confession entered into evidence unless it is video and audio taped. Cops in England have cameras mounted to their heads and gps trackers attached to them.
When asked you'll be told it's an officer safety issue. I believe it boils down to our legislators and admin don't trust us as officers.

camera on our gun's for our safety...BULL S**T. All this is, is another way for the politician's and administration to ram it up our A**. How the hell doe's a camera on our gun help protect us. All it's going to do is make the officer look at the camera and hesitate when he see's it and more an likely get himself hurt or killed. Why don't all the damn liberal's go to canada with all the other bleeding heart's and just leave us the hell alone and let us do our job's!!!!!

You've got to be kidding me?! How in the world will a pistol camera work when we're trained not to point our firearm at a threat until we are ready to shoot (anybody ever hear of the low-ready position)? As I see it a pistol in the low-ready position won't capture any threat we're looking at with our eyes until we come up on target and shoot. Yeah, that'll silence Rev. Al and his posse. How does an ex-cop with 22 years on the job not know basic firearms concepts?

When will administrators learn that video is not the end all be all of what actually happens. How many times have we seen in car video that will not show the entire scene or what has happened leading up to the decision to use deadly force. This will become just one more tool for the "monday morning quarterbacks" to spend months picking apart. No wonder we are having a harder time recruiting quality people. I guess "1984: was ony 25 years behind!!!
