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

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. Sheriff's Drone Nixed After Privacy Uproar

December 06, 2012  | 

Outcry from privacy advocates prompted county supervisors to postpone or possibly scrap plans to purchase a surveillance drone for the Alameda County (Calif.) Sheriff's Office.

Last minute intervention Tuesday morning by the American Civil Liberties Union prompted supervisors to require explicit authorization to use grant money the Sheriff's Office received to purchase the drone. Now the proposal will have to go to the public protection committee for approval then back to the full board of supervisors. That is likely to happen early next year.

Concern has been mounting among privacy groups for months that Sheriff Greg Ahern was forging ahead without rules for deploying a drone in the skies above Alameda County.

The ACLU and Electronic Frontier Foundation are concerned about the lack of privacy protections. They were dismayed to find that the Sheriff's Office was asking the supervisors on Tuesday to approve a $31,646 grant to help pay for a drone, indicating that the department was far closer to acquisition than they had led the public to believe.

Privacy uproar?! LA uses one. No issues...If there are privacy concerns, then a lot of people have things to hide. These drones help a lot. from aiding in criminal aprehension, to being around to capture things on photo and video when there are no officers within a decent response. Not to mention criminal grow houses that give off way way to much heat etc.

OFFICER I WANT YOU HERE IN 5 MINUTES. YOU 80 MILES FROM MY HERE? OK MAKE IT TEN MINUTES.

I can understand the concern. However, maybe if the department addressed this with a use policy and communicated that then there wouldn't be as much of a backlash. I wouldn't want one flying indiscriminately over my backyard either. I'm not saying that the department would be but I would be communicating that to the county's citizens. Just a thought.

"Criminal Grow houses" Most green houses are not criminal. I own one. They let the grower eat traditional native food that is not sold in commercial store grocery Store. Growing your own food won’t be criminal until Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) (2010) becomes active on December 31 2012. http://www.extension.iastate.edu/article/food-facilities-must-register-fda-dec-31-2012c

The only outcry here is from the criminals.

Question; Since when does these two idiot organizations, the ACLU and the Electronic Frontier Foundation tell Law Enforcement what they can and can not use, purchase and use.
Last time that I looked, this was still the United States of America.
