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

Learn how your department can make incident reporting faster, safer and more complete by registering for our webinar today.

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

2012 ILEETA Challenge Featured FAAC DrivingForce Simulation System

May 04, 2012  | 

FAAC Incorporated and IES Interactive announced the completion of the ILEETA Challenge competition at the 2012 ILEETA Conference in Wheeling, Ill.

The ILEETA Challenge is a physical exertion, driving, and shooting competition using the FAAC DrivingForce simulation training system. DrivingForce consists of both driver and force options training simulation systems.

This year's challenge consisted of a period of physical exercise, a high-speed pursuit of a domestic assault suspect, followed by an active shooter interaction at the IES MILO force options simulator.

Drake Oldham, training officer with the Ohio Attorney General's office, was the winner of the 2012 Challenge. Oldham said the complexity of the scenario created by the simulation systems was as beneficial for the Challenge event as it is for the training room, according to the company.

"We would definitely benefit from more of this type of simulation at the academy," Oldham said.

While it was difficult to provide an in-depth evaluation of the DrivingForce system after such a short interaction with it, Oldham said the amount of requirements necessary for a high score in the challenge was impressive. Use of seatbelts, radio communication, clearing intersections, handling traffic, and communicating with dispatch all served to create a high-stress, intense driving experience. He added that for a training program he would put his state's driving codes into the training scenarios so officers could practice to the standard they will be held to on the road.

FAAC Public Safety Specialist Chuck Deakins, who created and conducted the challenge, said this event encapsulated the equivalent of a full-cycle training event in the FAAC DrivingForce simulation training system.

"We started the challenge with physical exertion to increase the competitors' heart rates, similar a foot chase or a struggle with a subject," Deakins said.

The scenario then moved to the arrest of the subject in a domestic assault. As the subject is being detained, the other half of the dispute drives by in a pickup, fires two shots and flees the scene. The competitors enter the driver training simulator and go into pursuit of the pickup. The pickup stops in a dead end, exits, and fires another round at the competitor. The competitor exits the driving simulator and moves into the force option simulator where a fire-fight ensues.

Students were scored on seatbelt use, activation of lights and siren, radio usage, navigating through traffic, and suspect neutralization.

"The level of competition was very high, and that is a testament to these officers’ own commitment to themselves and their skillsets," Deakins said. "In fact, we had to use a tie-breaker to determine the winner this year."

FAAC Business Developer Bill Martin said the DrivingForce system is a good tool to evaluate trainee responses to stressful events.

"One reason why DrivingForce is such a powerful training tool is that instructors can allow students to fail or act improperly in the scenario, so an instructor can provide the proper remedy," Martin said. "Mostly, we learn from our mistakes, not our successes, so the simulator is the best training tool out there to unearth improper activity so it can be corrected before these officers face the same encounter on the street."
