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

Learn how your department can make incident reporting faster, safer and more complete by registering for our webinar today.

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

DHS Approves EF Johnson Technologies Lab for Testing Emergency Responder Radios

May 27, 2009  | 

EF Johnson Technologies, Inc. announced that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has formally approved the company's engineering lab to test emergency responder radios for standards compliance. This approval is part of the DHS' Project 25 Compliance Assessment Program, which will provide more than 60,000 emergency response agencies nationwide with a consistent and traceable method to gather P25 compliance information on the products they buy.

"Our engineering lab demonstrated its competence by completing a rigorous and objective assessment process based on internationally accepted standards," said Michael Jalbert, president and chief executive officer of EF Johnson Technologies, Inc. "We are now qualified by the DHS to assess interoperability.

"Our products have passed interoperability tests at government facilities, in independent test labs, and even in the labs of our biggest competitor. First responders can now have even greater confidence in our Project 25 compliant solutions such as our award-winning ES Series radios with the Enhanced (AMBE+2) Project 25 Vocoder, or our innovative Trunked IP25 and Conventional IP25 infrastructure systems."

"Recognized labs are essential to the success of the P25 CAP program," said Dr. David Boyd, Director of the Command, Control and Interoperability Division within the DHS Science and Technology Directorate. "Until now, emergency response agencies have purchased and used equipment developed by disparate manufacturers. Often operating on different spectra, this equipment prevented interoperable communications when responding to critical incidents. P25 CAP will, for the first time, allow the emergency response community to be confident that the equipment they purchase is, in fact, interoperable."

About the P25 Compliance Assessment Program (CAP)

Managed in partnership with the National Institute of Standards and Technology's Office of Law Enforcement Standards and a coalition of emergency responders and communications equipment manufacturers, the P25 CAP establishes an independent compliance assessment process to ensure communications equipment interoperates, conforms to P25 standards, and meets performance requirements. P25 standards allow radios to interoperate regardless of manufacturer, thereby enabling emergency responders to communicate as necessary.

About EF Johnson Technologies, Inc.

Headquartered in Irving, Texas, EF Johnson Technologies, Inc. focuses on innovating, developing and marketing the highest quality secure communications solutions to organizations whose mission is to protect and save lives. The Company's customers include first responders in public safety and public service, the federal government, and industrial organizations. The Company's products are marketed under the EFJohnson, 3e Technologies International, and Transcrypt International names.
