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

Learn how your department can make incident reporting faster, safer and more complete by registering for our webinar today.

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

St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson is pushing forward with plans for a drone and wants to create what he calls an information center.

The idea is to have a place where officers can keep track of the growing number of surveillance cameras on the ground and someday, in the air.

The chief said he is just trying to be smart by using the latest technology to extend the police department's ability to keep an eye on dangerous neighborhoods and solve crimes.

"These are not sinister things that crawl up the side of your house and peer in your windows in the dark of night," said Chief Dotson.

No matter what you say Chief! What starts out as an innocent marketing tool to help LEO's ends up like the cameras in this country. If your so dam concerned about dangerous neighborhoods than increase your manpower and have them walk a beat. Better still change the laws for dangerous criminals. The last thing anyone wants is more surveillance. Besides who the hell wants to listen to objects flying over neighborhoods with high intensity lights malfunctioning and crashing into buildings and cars. Do your Job!

There are a lot of cities in California that could use these drones especially if they were equiped with fire power.

Boston @ 10/15/2013 11:48 AM

@Capt. Crunch Firepower would be nice but see how our thinking escalates. Everyday Law Enforcement moves closer to soldiering. I don't think any of us want to move in that direction. The Feds or this Administration seem to be pushing this agenda. This is not good if we want a Police state or Government their are plenty countries in this world we could move to. Is this the start to the New World Order that been hushed-up?

Capt. Crunch @ 10/16/2013 12:48 AM

@ Boston, you make a good point and I do not want to see a police state but I think this is a good tool (the drone). If the PD can send a drone into a dangerous situation instead of a LEO this would be great and some departments do not have the manpower and the drone would help in this case also. If the New World Order is going to happen it will be with this Administration and I think people are getting wise to his lies.

@Capt.Crunch, I totally agree with your comment regarding small departments and limited manpower. If it was launched from a patrol car with a specific task in mind that would be understandable. But if it was launched from the station every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night from the hours of 7pm until dawn well that would now be taking a officer off the streets. The Chief would like this idea saving gas, saving wear and tear on the patrol car. The third shift in some small towns is once around the neighborhood and then park the patrol car to reduce the operating cost. I see this the same way the USG does with drones overseas. Let the people operate from the Police station and we can reduce the number of officers, save money and wear and tear on patrol cars. We will only dispatch an LEO if its a medical, domestic, etc. Now that officer is less visible in the community. The big disadvantage for society is now another way to NOT have personal contact with the people in the community.
