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

Vigilant's ALPR Data Helps Apprehend Suspect in Underage Sexual Assaults

June 05, 2015  | 

Vigilant Solutions' LEARN analytic software and commercial license plate reader (LPR) data helped a law enforcement agency locate and apprehend a suspect in multiple sexual assaults against underage victims. Because of the nature of this case, the agency has requested to remain anonymous and keep certain aspects of the case obscured.

One of the detectives on the case explains, "We had an individual identified as a suspect in multiple sexual assaults against several underage family members. When the investigation broke, the suspect fled the state in a vehicle that was not registered to him. We had a description of the vehicle, including the make, model, color, and other unique descriptors, but we had no license plate information.

"The suspect was believed to have fled to Mexico or was possibly staying with other family members in several states that border Mexico. Using LEARN's Stakeout feature, we remotely visited all the known family residences to see if there was any commercial LPR data that may assist in the investigation. We located a vehicle parked near one of the family member's residences that matched the description given to us by the victims. This image was shown to the victims who positively identified the vehicle as the one used by the suspect.

"With this positive visual confirmation, and with the full license plate number now available from the LPR detection, the vehicle was entered as a felony vehicle and the local police department was notified. The next day the local agency stopped the vehicle with the suspect inside. He was arrested and extradited, and he now faces 25 years to life as a sexual predator."

Brian Shockley, Vice President of Marketing for Vigilant Solutions, comments, "This is a great example of how commercially generated LPR data aids law enforcement. It goes without saying that, were it not for this data, this investigation would have taken much longer to resolve and would have consumed a far greater amount of resources from all of the participating agencies. Had this suspect not been arrested as quickly as he was, who knows how many more individuals may have been victimized? We applaud the agency for being vigilant in bringing this individual to justice, helping to bring closure to these young victims, and possibly preventing another horrible crime."
