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

CrimePush Launches Location-Aware Crime Reporting App

February 02, 2012  | has announced the launch of its iPhone and Android app that allows citizens to immediately report a crime to their local authorities and provide detailed location data, photos, video, audio, and text description of the crime to first responders.

"There are often tense situations when calling the police is not an option," explained co-founder Eman Pahlevani. "There are other times when inconvenience or fear of reprisal prevents one from reporting an incident. CrimePush allows the more than 100 million smartphone users the opportunity to become the eyes and ears of authorities." plans to work at the enterprise level and partner with high schools, law enforcement agencies, universities, and international mobile carriers. On the eve of its launch, the company has developed relationships with the Metropolitan (D.C.) Police Department, Virginia's Fairfax and Loudoun counties, Virginia school boards, and several D.C. universities.

The first customized safety application to hit the stores will be released for George Mason University, followed by a spring release version for high schools in the nation's fastest growing county, Loudoun.

In addition to reporting crimes to law enforcement, can also alert family and friends of stalking, harassment, or other threats by reporting an exact location when a threat arises.

The app can record and alert for domestic violence, physical violence, verbal threats, or intimidation. It can serve as a personal security device when traveling through dark or unfamiliar neighborhoods.

The app can alert medical responders to emergences like heart attack, stroke, or accidents when no one is around. It can also alert school authorities of bullying, physical altercations, or vandalism. 

"One of the great features of CrimePush is its ability to report a crime anonymously," said Shayan Pahlevani, co-founder. "This is especially important for high school and college students, who often find themselves the victim of hazing, bullying, or drug use but are not willing to inform the police because of reputation issues."

Do your homework guys before reporting! Go download it and look at the disclaimers! This is going to end up just being a tip app and is over-hyped and does not live up to the news at all. There are much better tips apps and companies out there that we are using.

I like this app, obviously John's very succint analysis is great and all, but here is what this thing does- it creates a channel for University Students to quickly contact their UPD without trying to google a number on the University Website. It features location technology and a number of great features that improve usability. Im sure in March when John downloaded the Beta version it sucked, but I have 1.0 and its pretty great.

As a recent college student and someone who volunteers in public schools-- this is a great concept and idea. But let's think about those who do not have the ability to download an app... let's think about those who have flip phones still... this would not work. This app does NOT provide the ability and reassurance that ANYONE with a cell phone can report a crime or instance of bullying. It only allows those with iPhones and Androids to do so. Just something for administrators to think about. There are other companies who provide the technology to include the entire population, not just iPhone and Android users...
