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.

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

Calif. Chief Used 10 Cops To Search for Son's iPhone

May 24, 2012  | 

Berkeley (Calif.) Police Chief Michael Meehan is defending his decision to deploy 10 officers to knock on doors in search of the teenage son's stolen smartphone.

The chief used 10 officers, including four—three police detectives and a sergeant—who each logged two hours of overtime during the search in January that took them into Oakland, reports the Silicon Valley Mercury News.

The iPhone, which included the Find My iPhone tracking software, was never recovered.

I hope the idiot police chief was ordered to pay for the police time he wasted.

August Vollmer is turning over in his grave! My next question is, why wasn't the iphone tracking software activated? Hmmm? Still a poor use of a police officer, detective and Sgt.'s time!

I have heard a few different stories from BPD Officer's about things the chief as done in their department. But, you always hear things, hard to please everyone right.............I guess after reading this story, those other stories are true. The chief is a complete Fuc---- Nut case. If the leadership of the "Peoples Republic",
AKA: Berkeley had any sense they would fire this nut case. Berkeley is a sewer that is infested with every kind of scumbag/crime you can imagine. The last thing we need to do is waste tax payers money on crap like this. These guys can be doing real police work, making arrest, writing tickets and providing services to the citizens and I don't care how slow it was. High Visibility = Crime Prevention.

I know how stressful things can get. Just the other night at my house, we had an emergency situation. My daughter discovered after being asleep for a few hours that her favorite blankee was gone. With no clear explanation, we started a search, but it ended with negative results.
My wife said to me, maybe one of the little girls that were playing at our house earlier in the day, could have taken it. I thought to myself....Hell, this could be a 459pc, maybe the little girl came to my house with the intent to commit the theft. Wow, what a cop I am. However, I am sorry to say I never thought about calling my dept. and asking for assistance. I bet if 10 Police Officers came over we could have conducted a search and retrieved the stolen blankee and possible booked that little thief............Damm....... maybe next time. Thanks Chief Meehan for teaching me these new techniques in use in Police work.

Chief Meehan your an idiot and you have disgraced the Berkeley PD.

Who do you think you are?

Capt David-retired LA Cou @ 5/25/2012 8:19 AM

Berkeley?? That sounds par for the course. Great police work guys.
