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

Ohio Graduate Students Develop Device to Measure Weed Intoxication

April 27, 2015  | 

Two University of Akron students won a $10,000 inventors' award for developing a sensor that they say will allow police to determine in minutes if a driver is under the influence of marijuana.

Mariam Crow and Kathleen Stitzlein, graduate students in biomedical engineering, hope to eventually market their roadside testing device, the Cannibuster, to police in states where marijuana has been legalized, according to the university.

With the legalization of marijuana, states have set 5 nanograms or less of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, as the legal limit for drivers. But the technology to accurately measure levels of the chemical on the roadside does not exist, the students told Cleveland.com.

"Today if a driver is suspected of impaired driving due to marijuana, law enforcement officers must call an Emergency Medical Squad to the scene or take the driver to a local hospital for blood work," Stitzlein stated in a news release. "Lab results can take up to six weeks to come back, which is clearly not ideal."

Stitzlein said the Cannibuster uses saliva testing and lab-on-chip technology to determine the concentration of the chemical in the bloodstream, providing police with a quick, accurate result.

Urine taken at the Police Station would be the most likely method. Ohio allows the Officer to chose blood, breath or urine or all three or two of the three. The choice of method is at the Officer's discretion. But there is two parts to the Ohio DUI law the per se limit and driving impaired. Driving impaired does not require any test of any kind, impaired driving is based upon how badly they were driving. They can test low but still be convicted of impaired driving.

Pot is not legal as yet in Ohio so any drug of abuse is grounds for conviction and there is no quality allowable on illegal drugs or drugs of abuse. So while its nice they came up with a test, under current Ohio Law there is no quantity limit for drugs needed.
