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 Triple Homicide Suspect Located in New York Using Vigilant Solutions

September 03, 2015  | 

Vigilant Solutions announced today that the Whitehall (Ohio) Police Department used its LEARN investigative software and commercial license plate reader (LPR) data to locate a vehicle associated with a triple homicide on August 19th, resulting in the arrest of Daveron Minnis on August 25th by the New York City Police Department.

Sgt. John Grebbs of the Whitehall Police Department explains, "The bodies of Kim Alston, Dontai Rheubottom, and Charles Fischer were found inside the Shaker Square Apartments on Olde Bailey Way near South Hamilton Road on Wednesday, August 19th. Through some investigation, it was determined that a white Dodge Charger was used as the getaway vehicle and Mr. Minnis was identified as one of the suspects.

"We entered the license plate of the Dodge Charger into LEARN in order to generate alerts should any vehicle in Vigilant's commercial LPR data network scan the plate. On Monday the 24th, we received an alert from LEARN that the suspect vehicle had been seen in Jamaica, N.Y., at 1:15 pm by an asset recovery vehicle using Vigilant's license plate reader equipment. Using the pictures provided, we confirmed that it was the correct vehicle. I immediately notified the NYPD and made them aware of the vehicle's location, but it was not there when they went to the scene."

Vigilant copies the 100 million license plate scans made each month by asset recovery vehicles nationwide to its law enforcement data center in Virginia, making the data available to law enforcement for investigations and also for matching against various law enforcement hotlists.

Sgt. Grebbs continues, "On the very next day, August 25th, we received another alert that the license plate had been scanned again by one of these commercial vehicles at 11:43 am. It was in very close proximity to the scan from the prior day. I once again notified the NYPD with this information, and they were able to locate the vehicle in the area reported using a mobile license plate reader. Mr. Minnis was taken into custody and is being extradited back to Ohio where he will face three counts of homicide. The LPR data from Vigilant definitely assisted in this case, and saved countless hours and agency resources in locating our suspect."

No matter how good the outcome is, this is "obviously a government intrusion into the lives of citizens who have the right to travel anywhere they want without any interference or unwarranted search "of anything connected to them, basically it works well and is a good LEO tool, so the thug supporters (ACLU) will find a reason to sue and stop these "Nazi like intrusions in our privacy". How dare we put technology to good use?

I think that the ACLU has partnered with the BLM group and that will cause all kinds of headaches.
