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

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

WatchGuard Video Introduces Feature That Allows Recording After the Fact

March 17, 2010  | 


WatchGuard Video announced today the release of Version 6.0 software for the WatchGuard DV-1 police in-car video system. The Version 6.0 upgrade includes a powerful new patent pending feature called "Record-After-the-Fact" that allows officers to retrieve buffered video not previously recorded to a DVD.

WatchGuard says this feature goes far beyond the traditional pre-event video feature common in many digital in-car video systems. Record-After-the-Fact provides the ability to create a new video recording event up to several days after the time the event actually occurred. Many officers can recall times when important events occurred, but the in-car video camera was not recording. Furthermore, most agencies can point to multiple court cases that were lost because the video camera never recorded the event. At times, a patrol vehicle may happen to drive by a location where suspects have been loitering prior to committing a crime. With Record-After-the-Fact, such unexpected encounters can be recalled to assist in an investigation or to exonerate an officer.

The WatchGuard DV-1 is the only in-car video system on the market that uses two separate recording drives to enable this capability. Triggered video events are recorded onto a DVD disc, while simultaneously the system is always recording video in the background to the internal hard drive. Now, officers can easily access the video buffered on the internal hard drive, which usually goes back several days, and define a new recording event simply by entering a start and stop point.

In Texas, an agency was able to use the video from its DV-1's hard drive to help identify a second suspect from a bank robbery. An officer was in route to the bank, when he happened to pass by the vehicle later identified as the suspect's vehicle. The hard drive video clearly showed a female passenger that was not reported by witnesses at the scene. This unexpected video evidence proved critical in making a subsequent arrest.

Another officer said: "WatchGuard really saved the day for me. When I got back to my car, I realized I hadn't initiated a recording of the traffic stop. Since the DV-1's always recording in the background, I was able to go back and make a recording of the event. It turned out to be a high profile case, and thanks to the video I had the evidence I needed to exonerate my character."

As with all WatchGuard software upgrades to date, Version 6.0 is provided free of charge and has already been mailed to every WatchGuard DV-1 customer. In addition, this upgrade is compatible with all hardware generations of the DV-1; even the first generation systems manufactured in 2005.
