Originally aired: 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 on-demand 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 session, 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

Video: Axon Cam Captures Burning Truck Rescue

March 26, 2013  | 

VIDEO: Ohio Cops Pull Man from Burning Truck

Three officers from a Cleveland-area police department rescued the driver of a truck who struck a utility pole Saturday morning.

Euclid (Ohio) Police Officer Adam Beese was wearing a TASER Axon on-officer camera system during the incident, which began at about 11 a.m. As Officer Beese approached the truck, flames from the engine compartment licked the crunched hood of the burgundy pickup.

The raw footage, posted by WKYC, shows the passenger-side window shatter and a cloud of brownish-gray smoke pour from the driver's compartment. Two other officers used batons to break out other windows and pull the man to safety.

Officer Beese is testing the Axon system and helping draft a policy for the agency's Standard Operating Policy manual. Several other officers are evaluating Vievu on-lapel cameras.

Officer Beese mounts his TASER Axon camera to a pair of Oakley Flak Jacket sunglasses and wears a small battery pack/control box on his duty belt. Video can be uploaded to Evidence.com or locally stored, Beese told POLICE Magazine. The department is now evaluating TASER's cloud-based storage service.

"It's your friend," Beese said about the system. "It's there to assist in convictions and reduce false complaints."

Several veteran commanders have resisted its use in the agency, and Beese said he has had to change the status-quo mentality.

"You've got to get the mentality that 'I'm already on video,' because everybody on the street has a video camera, so you might as well have video that's as close to what you're seeing as possible," he said.

Officer Beese has a valid point about the current world of technology, with the smart phones, etc. nothing is sacred. The new technology is small and user friendly and with todays new officers most of this is second nature when compared to us ole' timers..
