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.

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

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 Shows Fatal Assault on Miss. Detective

Interrogation room surveillance video captured the killing of a Jackson (Miss.) Police detective by a murder suspect, as more details emerged about the line-of-duty death.

Detective Eric Smith, 40, had brought Jeremy Powell, 23, into a third-floor interrogation room on Thursday to interview him about the homicide of a man who was found dead on a Jackson street.

Detective Smith, who was armed, didn't handcuff Powell during the interrogation. The interview became combative and Powell assaulted Detective Smith, overpowering him and taking away the detective's service pistol. Powell fatally shot Detective Smith four times and then killed himself.

The Jackson Police Department so far has refused to release the video footage of the encounter, reports the Associated Press.

Detective Smith, who served the department since 1995, was one of the agency's lead robbery-homicide detectives. In 2012, Smith received the Jackson's Best Award, an honor given to employees who go above and beyond the call of duty in the City of Jackson, reports WAPT.

Detective Smith has been remembered as a devoted father, who left behind two sons.

LT. Jer @ 4/9/2013 5:24 AM

There is no need to release the video footage to the public. How about a little bit of respect for Det. Smith's loved ones? I guess the press/media will never learn about common decency....RIP and may God bring comfort to your loved ones.

Chief T @ 4/9/2013 6:40 AM

Rest in peace brother... 10-42

Lt. Cruise @ 4/8/2013 6:48 AM

Recently it seems like its open season on Law Enforcement. We watch for the bad guys that's prey on the innocent and have to watch for those who prey on us. We can't set in our cars and eat without looking over our shoulders. My wife realises now why when we go out to eat why I never set with my back to the door. My heart goes out to the family and friends of W. Va.Sheriff Crum and Det. Smith. Your job is now done and God has called you for a different tour of duty where peace is always is always

Deputy King @ 4/9/2013 7:15 AM

R.I.P. brother.

Capt Davis @ 4/9/2013 8:42 AM

Even experienced officers make mistakes and put our guard down,but my brother in blue,did his job well.I salute you and pray for your family, other officers keep your head up and your backs covered.

arturo ramos @ 4/9/2013 10:15 AM

This is a sad day for Law Enforcement, my prayers and thoughts go out to the family and friends. In my 34 years in law enforcement,things have not change. the hatre and violence towards Law Enforcement will continue, we have to prevail, we have to mentally and physcially be prepared for the worst while on or off the job. the stress through out the years is slowly taking its toll on us. The "END OF WATCH" go home and enjoy your family and friends. Be safe "GOD speed"

Capt David-retired LA Cou @ 4/9/2013 12:21 PM

What the hell happened here?? No cuffs, officer armed and one on one with a MURDER suspect..

M.Conner @ 4/8/2013 3:59 PM

Regardless of whether mistakes were made or not. A fellow crime fighter has lost his life. You will be missed and god bless your family.

Fred Stevens @ 4/9/2013 5:10 PM

R.I.P. Brother and my prayers to your family.

Steve @ 4/10/2013 6:31 AM

My sympathy to this officer's family and department!
I hope that the department will not allow that video to EVER be put out for the public to see. This officer's family is going through a tremendous amount of heartache right now and will never completely heal from the ordeal. They surely won't need any reminders in the future, just to appease the news media, cop haters, and thrill seekers!

Deputy M.Garcia @ 4/10/2013 7:07 AM

My prayers will be with his family.

Sgt. T. Goodman @ 4/11/2013 3:14 AM

An animal has taken another of our heroes.

James Brown @ 4/11/2013 10:51 AM

Another fine man in law enforcement has reached the end of his shift.
We'll carry on from here.

James Brown @ 4/11/2013 10:55 AM

Another fine man in law enforcement has ended his shift. We all grieve.
NPSO Deputy Brown
