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

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

San Diego Drops Red-Light Cameras

San Diego became the latest California city to drop red-light cameras at major intersections, as city officials cited public hostility and no measurable decline in accidents.

Mayor Bob Filner, at a Friday press conference, carried away a photo-enforcement sign from North Harbor Drive and West Grape Street, near San Diego International Airport, reports U-T San Diego.

Nearly 20,000 motorists a year received $490 tickets in a program that "can only be justified if there are demonstrable facts that prove that they raise the safety awareness and decrease accidents in our city," Filner said. "The data, in fact, does not really prove it."

The red light traps were always a scam and a shakedown. May also have caused accidents since part of the scam was to reset the lights for a very brief yellow to trap more people. Another little known part of the scam was that most of the tickets were not for purportedly running the red, but for a rolling right turn. The traps were a shakedown, a disguised tax, crooked in every respect, and according to the numbers probably caused more accidents than they prevented.

Although respect for the law in many countries is in steep decline, our citizens still fork over their hard-earned taxes fairly dutifully, since they see a social contract with the government to provide a safe, just, and free society in which each of us can pursue his or her individual goals. These red light gimmicks may have started from a noble idea, but they quickly evolved into a government "Profit Center", with safety, justice and freedom given only lip service, as politicians sought out the most lucrative locations to install cameras. Politicians quickly become addicted to "that most delicious of all privileges - spending other people's money" (John Randolph). When politicians' primary concern is how to get more of the people's money, rather than fulfilling their sworn duty to be responsible stewards of the position with which they have been entrusted, the people lose respect for legitimate authority. Look around at the schools: we allowed government-sanctioned gambling because the politicians swore the profits would go to improve education. Now each day, the schools have lines of cars queued up to drop off and pick up one or two kids each—although we have less kids than when the baby boomers went to school, we can't even afford buses anymore! And forget extracurricular activities—we need fund drives to even have the sports our taxes used to pay for! Although it is undisputed that government's first responsibility is to maintain a safe and orderly society, we will see this hollowing out more and more in our prisons, law enforcement, and the armed forces, as other spending becomes a "higher priority". The Roman Empire rotted from the center out, and we may see this gradually happening here. Officers may be like the Roman Legionnaires out at the edge of the empire—holding the line as the society collapses from within from the selfishness and moral decay in our leaders.
