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

Oklahoma County Sheriff Deploys HD Surveillance System at Prison

April 01, 2010  | 

The Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office (OCSO) has deployed Avigilon's high definition (HD) surveillance system at its 268,000 square-foot detention center, a move designed to save the agency more than $10 million annually in personnel costs and will reduce the incidents of false liability claims, according to Avigilon.

"One of the greatest advantages of the Avigilon HD surveillance system is that it delivers real, useable proof to help resolve conflicts between inmates or refute false claims of negligence or use of excessive force," said Capt. David Baisden. "With the Avigilon HD surveillance system in place, the first question we ask is whether we have video of an incident or not. With our previous analog-based surveillance system, checking footage was the third or fourth step in the investigative process."

Officers and administrators will manage the Avigilon HD surveillance system using Avigilon Control Center network video management software (NVMS) with HD stream management and have installed 138 Avigilon HD cameras ranging from one to five megapixels throughout the facility.

OCSO has also installed four analog video encoders to dramatically improve the performance of its existing 16 analog cameras and store up to 90 days of continuous surveillance video. A rotating staff of 20 officers monitors Avigilon's HD surveillance system around-the-clock from the central control room that houses 12 monitors and two workstations.

The Avigilon HD surveillance system delivers awareness in various prison areas without requiring a security guard for each cell pod. The OCSO can also cut investigation times from days to seconds.

With the Avigilon HD surveillance system in place, the OCSO can now provide clear, irrefutable evidence to the district attorney's office, which they were not able to do with its previous analog-based system. In addition, the OCSO can now respond more quickly to incidents to resolve conflicts and improve overall safety.

Finally, the OCSO can defend itself again false claims of officer negligence or use of excessive force to dramatically reduce associated liability costs.

"Under Sheriff John Whetsel's leadership, the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office has a track-record of embracing technological innovation to continually improve police services and ensure the safety of its citizens," said Dave Tynan, vice president of global sales and marketing at Avigilon. "Sheriff Whetsel's success with the Avigilon HD Surveillance System is a great example of why law enforcement agencies around the world are transitioning to a new standard in surveillance that is easily achieved through the power and performance of HD video and abandoning the marginal effectiveness of legacy analog video."
