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

Florida Police Union Wants Say About Body Camera Policy

The Gulf Coast Chapter of the Florida Police Benevolent Association is asking the Fort Myers police chief for bargaining rights in the implementation of the department's new body camera policy.

Matt Sellers, president of the Gulf Coast Chapter, said the group is not against officers wearing body cameras, but it is concerned with the policy. The police union represents some of the officers on the Fort Myers police force as well as other regional agencies.

"There are serious concerns about training and also the right to privacy of the citizens of Fort Myers and officers," Sellers said. "We don't disagree with officers wearing body cameras but we want them properly trained." Sellers added that the policy of how to use the cameras is "vague."

Fort Myers Police Chief Doug Baker, in an interview last week with the News-Press, said he understands the concerns, but is moving forward with the policy in place. "The policy that we have put forward is very clear," Baker said. "It is very specific when it tells you to record, not to record and what we want to capture."

Bad thing about cameras and audio is they are limited to a very narrow field of view. When the action is one on one right in front of the camera that would be perfect viewing conditions. But in real life action comes from 365 degrees of sight and sound. The camera cannot catch everything going on the way a human mind can. There will always be blind spots.

Good valid point Lep. Anything to help is appreciated in todays L.E. world but manipulation is always a problem.
