Thursday, December 13, 2018 -- 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

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 Thursday, December 13, 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.

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

Officers Can Learn More About AEDs in Cardiac Science's Free Webinar

February 24, 2015  | 

Cardiac Science is presenting a special webinar on automated external defibrillators (AEDs) titled, "Protect the Community, Protect Your Own: Learn How Your Department Can Save Lives with AEDs" on Thursday, March 26, 2015 at 1 p.m. Central/2 p.m. Eastern.

This webinar will cover:

  • When a 911 call is placed, police are typically first on scene to a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) emergency – a condition that kills more than 380,000 Americans each year.
  • The only effective treatment for SCA is an immediate shock from an AED, so police must provide care to the victim quickly.
  • AEDs can also help to protect your own: Data show that, due to high stress levels and workload, law enforcement is among the highest-risk professions susceptible to SCA.
  • Discover how to fight and win the inevitable budget battles.
  • Learn how to implement your AED program from conception to completion.

The webinar will be led by Sgt. Scott Simon, a Nevada state trooper for 25 years, who made life-saving AEDs a priority in his department and outfitted 210 patrol vehicles with AEDs. Simon, who is now the vice president of Nevada Project Heartbeat, found the funds to see this initiative through despite budgetary battles and bureaucratic pushback. He is an expert in helping law enforcement agencies research, fund, select, and deploy AEDs. Simon is also an EMT and oversees CPR/AED training for officers in the patrol.

Just something to bear in mind. If the subject identified in the emergency has had previous heart problems first check for an implanted pacemaker or defibrillator before you apply CPR or an AED. Your actions can kill a subject that has this implanted cardiac defibrillator since your actions will interfere with the implanted device which is connected directly to the persons heart. A horizontal scar about 3 inches long the on the front chest just below the right or left shoulder (most likely below the persons left shoulder) will be where this implanted device is located. The device is made from titanium and can easily be felt just below the skin, it is a little smaller than the size of a pack of cigarettes and is very hard to the touch (it is bullet proof). (The patient will have a card in their purse or wallet that is red and white that explains the device). The implanted device directly monitors their heart and will automatically activate should that persons heart stop. Anyone touching them at the moment of activation will also be shocked with enough force to restart a heart. In a healthy heart of a caregiver it will most likely stop their heart from beating, killing the first responder. You should remove any shirt to conduct CPR or use an AED anyway so the scar will be obvious. The scar is intentionally wider to make it obvious to physicians of the presence of an ICD (Implanted Cardiac Defibrillator). More and more people get this device after their first heart event so the devices are much more plentiful than they once were. Just something for first responders to know.
