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 Thursday, December 13, 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

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

ACLU Questions Denver's On-Body Cameras

November 21, 2011  | 

The Denver Police Department is testing on-body cameras for adoption in a move expected to lead to greater accountability of officers and potential privacy issues.

Twenty three Denver officers are testing the devices during a 60-day pilot program to determine if the gear could be more widely distributed among the force. During the trial, officers learning to use the new technology will decide when to activate the cameras, a decision that has drawn fire from the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado.

The civil libertarian group wants the cameras to be on all day, Jessie Ulibarri, the ACLU's public-policy director, told the Denver Post.

"To get a picture of what is going on in our streets," said Ulibarri. "We would want them to be on during the day. It is a stretch to say that in 2011 police officers don't know how to use basic technology like cameras."

I can't say I'm shocked that the ultra LIBERAL ACLU would want these cameras activated all the time. In the LIBS minds, they do not trust law enforcement officers word. In their minds the officer will only activate the cameras when it's to officer's benefit. It's a shame this kind of thinking has spread. Then again, the LIBERAL MEDIA is a huge outlet for these types of groups...

I'll say it again. The ACLU looks for every opportunity to try to tell police departments what they can or cannot do and they should be told where to stick their attempts to usurp any kind of influence or authority over law enforcement.

Mando @ 11/23/2011 4:54 AM

If you know you are going to loose this battle with the ACLU than incorporate a clause where the ACLU will share in the cost of purchase and all day operation of these cameras

Tim @ 11/23/2011 9:46 AM

In the ACLU's purview reasonable expectation of privacy only applies to non-government officials. Does anyone really want to listen to my bodily functions, opinions of my supervisor and elected officials, or my opinion of the ACLU? They protest cameras in public places but expect police officials to record their every movement all day.

Tom Ret @ 11/24/2011 10:31 PM

The ACLU should move to France.
