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

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

A Winston-Salem (N.C.) Police officer's kind act helping a woman stranded in the rain received hundreds of "likes" after it was posted to Facebook and Twitter.

Officer Charles Ziegler was off duty last week working his side job providing security for a church, when he noticed the woman pushing a stroller in the rain. He offered to give her a lift. An onlooker took a photo of the good deed and posted it to his Twitter feed.

Officer Ziegler was featured in a news report on WXII, and told NBC Today that his "phone just blew up Wednesday night."

Wouldn't it be nice if this made it onto the national news. I bet they don't carry it because it makes the cop look good.

Its the good news you hardly ever see on TV. In the late 70s, it was a dead night and a young man high on drugs and vodka, was found almost unconscious He was a Vietnam vet like me and begged for our help. We took him to the ER and he said in case I die please dont leave me. It was a dead night and no calls so we stayed and the Dr's. saved his life. I was so elated, that as a 3rd year cop, I saved a life and was shown much appreciation from his family and the medical staff for keeping him alive. When I returned to work the following day, I was called in to the Chief's office. To my surprise I had had my butt chewed out for for helping this guy. I was told as a state officer it wasn't in my jurisdiction to help him and the Chief said, you should have let him die. I looked at him in surprise and said I would do it again, that's my job, while in my head I was thinking what a moron you are. Thank goodness he finally retired after many years of service.

@bob retired leo: Thank God that insipid idiot is no longer riding a desk. You did what was right, as did this young Officer. From one vet to another: charlie mike. Blues, stay safe.

Great Job!!!

Bob @ VA @ 3/8/2013 5:08 AM

Outstanding! If only the press covered more of these kind of common incidents.

Trigger @ 3/8/2013 6:08 AM

Officer Ziegler, excellent job. I know the last thing you probably wanted was the media involvement while doing something you normally do. It is interesting that the law enforcement profession does not have a "true" job description to cover the many, many things that we do. Sometimes administration definitely looses touch of reality.

John @ 3/8/2013 1:30 PM

Officer Ziegler exemplifies the serve part of to protect and serve.

Jack Betz @ 3/10/2013 1:35 PM

Considering the last good deed done by an officer still was cussed by the igronant, don't expect this to last.
