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

VIDEO: Wisconsin Department's Facebook Post Goes Viral

What started as a Facebook post has turned into an outpouring of support for the Holmen (Wis.) Police Department, reports WEAU.

After the department Facebook page asked its fans to keep language family friendly, one commenter responded, "Yet police aren't typically family friendly."

The comment struck a chord with Crystal Sedevie, an investigator for the Holmen Police Department.

"A lot of times the jobs that we do, the scenarios that we come across every day are working with families, trying to help them resolve problems, issues, work through things that they're going through."

Sedevie responded with a 900-word post explaining why the Holmen Police Department is family friendly.

The post went viral, with over 2,000 "likes," over 500 "shares," and over 100 comments in just one day.

"While there's a very few negative comments on there, the majority have been very positive, thanking us for the service that we do, the sacrifices that we make, and it makes our job a lot easier even though things are very negative lately it's nice to know that our public appreciates the job that we do and the effort that we are trying to make for them," said Sedevie.

Investigator Sedevie thank you for what you and the Holme Police Department do. Keep safe Brothers and Sisters in Blue.

I read the reply to the post and found it to be exact and appropriate. It dealt with the cop haters in a way that was fair yet let them know their opinion is worthless and what they judge any officer by is not only wrong, but biased. Glad to see some agencies are allowing their members to put the public and the thugs in their places, with kudos to the persons who recognize that not all Officers are racist or thugs, and those that aren't do not deserve the vitriol or hatred displayed to them by the public.
