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

Successful Sacramento County LPR Operation Uses Vigilant Solutions Tools

November 10, 2013  | 

Vigilant Solutions has announced that the Sacramento County (Calif.) Sheriff's Department and other Sacramento area agencies conducted a one-day sweep of Sacramento County using the company’s license plate recognition (LPR) systems and historical LPR data yielding impressive results.

The sweep dubbed Operation Trick or Treat was conducted on Wednesday Oct. 30 to demonstrate the effectiveness of license plate recognition systems installed on patrol cars and to highlight the use of how historical data is useful not only for investigations but also in coordinated patrol operations.  "The operation far surpassed my expectations,” said Sacramento SD Sgt. Kyle Hoertsch. “We scanned around 70,000 license plates, which yielded over 400 vehicles of interest in only six hours.  Over 25 recovered stolen vehicles and around the same number of arrests were made.  The arrests included a number from occupied stolen vehicles, but the majority were made possible through the use of historical LPR data from Vigilant Solutions as well as our own agency data to locate individuals with outstanding warrants, including many DUI's.  In addition to these results, we also located a missing person vehicle, a stolen tractor trailer out of Tennessee, and we reunited two owners with their stolen cars."

The operation was a coordinated effort among several agencies, coordinated by Hoertsch.  "It was the historical data that was very helpful to us in locating individuals with outstanding warrants.  Many of these individuals are difficult to locate, and the historical LPR data allowed for us to identify probable locations for these wanted individuals.  I can say that Sacramento County is a safer place as a result of our operation," he said.

The owner of one of the stolen vehicles that was recovered and returned commented that she was very grateful for Sacramento County Sheriff's efforts and for the technology that allowed her car to be returned to her.  When asked if she minded having her license plate scanned, she said, "By all means, please do it."

Founder and President of Vigilant Solutions, Shawn Smith, was present for the operation. "It was impressive to see our technology in action, and we applaud Sgt. Hoertsch for taking the initiative to coordinate this sweep and send a message to the criminals within Sacramento County that if they commit a crime, they will be caught,” Smith said.  “The criminal elements in Sacramento County will not enjoy the safe haven they may have in other locations where LPR data is quickly deleted and where the use of commercial LPR data for law enforcement purposes is prohibited."
