Originally aired: 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 on-demand 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 session, 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

CODY Systems Donates Records Sharing System in Honor of Fallen Officer

November 23, 2009  | 

CODY Systems is donating the use of its C.O.B.R.A. real-time records sharing system for police officers within Bucks County, Pa. This gift is in honor of Officer Brian Gregg, a fallen officer from the Newtown Borough (Pa.) Police Department, and allows police officers across the county to look up critical information on persons, vehicles, and incidents from across seven participating police departments in real-time from their mobile units.

C.O.B.R.A. provides real-time access to all connected agencies' records databases, regardless of the RMS vendor each uses, from within an officer's mobile unit, allowing officers to search for persons, incidents, and vehicles from across the network, with real-time officer safety alerts.

Gregg, who had been employed with the Newtown Borough police force for just over a year, was killed in the line of duty on Sept. 29, 2005. The gunman also shot Gregg's partner and one other person during the altercation. 

CODY Systems, based out of Pottstown, Pa., has had long-standing relationships with many police departments within Bucks County and across the region for up to 15 years. The company knew of the incident involving Officer Gregg, but did not know at the time that critical officer safety information regarding the subject who attacked Officer Gregg and the others, while not in Newtown Borough's records database, was in the records databases of at least two neighboring jurisdictions-databases provided by CODY.

This information could have averted the incident by providing Officer Gregg with critical officer safety alerts about the individual who committed the attack.

At the latest Bucks County Chiefs' meeting, after discussions with their clients in Bucks County, conducting a pilot program which CODY funded, and doing considerable financial evaluation in this difficult economic climate, the company announced its intention to donate a C.O.B.R.A. system with the following elements:

  • 1 license of the C.O.B.R.A. Center-Point Server.
  • Connections for the seven local participating CODY RMS clients in order to allow each of them to synchronize their records information in real-time with the Center-Point Server.
  • 75 licenses of the C.tac tactical search application, to be used in mobile units across the police departments in the county. C.tac will allow officers in equipped mobile units to search the records databases of the seven participating agencies.
  • Web-based training sessions on the use of C.tac.
  • Installation, set-up, technical and project management services

CODY is also funding the ongoing support and maintenance of the system.

"Critical information on suspects should always be at the fingertips of the officers on the street so that incidents like this do not occur," says Fran Heffner, CEO of CODY Systems. "I cannot say that our system would have prevented the struggle that ensued, or spared the life of Officer Gregg and the injury to the others, but that's why we produce these systems.
