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

Alabama Agencies Receive Grants to Buy Digital Ally In-Car Video Systems

March 02, 2010  | 

It will soon be easier for officers in Phenix City and Russell County, Ala., to do their jobs. Both city police and county deputies are getting an upgrade in the form of new Digital Ally video systems for their police vehicles.

Nearly $100,000 is coming to the Russell County Sheriff's Department and Phenix City Police for the purchase of 20 police in-car video systems.

"This was a joint grant from the Bureau of Justice Administration. It was a 60/40 split with 60 for the city and 40 for the county," explained Phenix City Police Chief Ray Smith.

Right now the existing dashboard cameras are nothing more than a handheld camcorder.

Phenix City Mayor Sonny Coulter told News Leader Nine, "This is not something that's new to us. We have had some cameras in our police cars for several years. What happens is, technology changes so rapidly that the cameras we had become obsolete."

That's why the two law enforcement agencies teamed up to request money for upgraded equipment.

"We have eight from a prior grant we got last year and they were installed about three months ago. It's the same kind of cameras we'll get on the grant with Phenix City," said Russell County Sheriff Tommy Boswell.

Chief Smith added, "These new systems will be much more reliable, better quality video, they're also going to be mounted and enclosed in a rear view mirror package so it will free up space in the squad car."

With its smaller design and video playback capabilities in the mirror, Boswell said the new cameras will also help officers with their jobs, "It will enhance our ability to make traffic cases, it will also help officers if they're accused of excessive force."

After receiving word that the grant was awarded, the police department submitted their paperwork for the cameras, and they should be installed in patrol cars by the end of February.
