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.

Federal Bill Would Help Establish National Blue Alert

January 24, 2011  | 

If passed, the National Blue Alert Act would encourage states to set up a federal notification system to alert law enforcement agencies, the media and the public when a law enforcement officer is seriously injured or killed in the line of duty.

Reps. Michael G. Grimm (R-NY) and Pedro Pierluisi (D-Puerto Rico) are co-sponsoring the act, known as H.R. 365, that encourages a system that would work similarly to the Amber Alert system used to locate abducted children.

"The National Blue Alert Act will allow us to act quickly in apprehending suspects, and make it clear that to anyone who chooses to harm our nation's law enforcement officers, that they will be caught," according to Rep. Grimm, a former FBI agent. "Our law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every day for our safety and protection."

Currently, there is no national alerting system for attacks on officers; however, many states have created a state-level blue alert system. California's Blue Alert system went into effect Jan. 1.

Each year Congress authorizes funds via COPS grants for technology and automated systems that help state and local law enforcement agencies fight crime. H.R. 365 would authorize $10 million of already budgeted funds from the COPS to be appropriated for the creation of Blue Alert systems throughout the country.

The bill also directs the Department of Justice to designate a national coordinator for the program who would encourage states to develop Blue Alert plans, establish voluntary guidelines, and develop protocols for suspect apprehension.

The bill has been endorsed by the Sergeant's Benevolent Association that represents NYPD sergeants and the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA).

A good idea in Congress? Those are kind of rare so perhaps the states should get on board quickly if it passes. I guess it would be all right to have the DOJ set "voluntary" guidelines but I think apprehension protocols ought to be left to the individual states. I think they can all be trusted to adhere to the law but if the feds set those it could eventually evolve into some of the ridiculous prosecutions the DOJ persecutors now subject police and the military to for "violating" the supposed rights of some scumbag.
