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

Joplin Police Solve Two Hit-and-Run Cases with Vigilant Solutions LPR Data

February 12, 2016  | 

The Joplin Police Department in Missouri solved two recent hit-and-run cases with the assistance of license plate reader (LPR) data from Vigilant Solutions.

Officer Brian Wenberg explains, "I was assigned a hit‐and‐run case in which the victim was walking out of a convenience store and witnessed an elderly male back out of a parking space next to his vehicle, striking his vehicle and leaving the scene. In his statement he noticed that the suspect was not wearing shoes when he left the convenience store. He believed the minivan was gold and stated that the first three letters of the Missouri license plate were SJ3. There was no other information provided.

"I spoke with the manager of the store and was told that the security cameras were not working at the time so there was no video. I ran the partial tag through all of our local systems and received no likely matches. I then did a partial plate search using Vigilant Solutions' LEARN. In reviewing the possible matches, I found only one gold minivan matching the partial plate.

"I drove to the apartment building where the vehicle had been scanned and found it. It had damage consistent with the victim's statement. Through further investigation and upon speaking to the property manager and the suspect's son, I learned that the suspect was recently admitted to a care facility due to his declining health. The son reported that his father's feet were too swollen to get his shoes on, and he had no clue his father had been involved in an accident. The commercially available LPR data in LEARN allowed me to solve this case, allowing the victim to receive insurance compensation and assisting the family of the elderly man to better understand the risks associated with him driving an automobile.

"In another recent case, a woman was waiting to make a right turn when a gold Chevy Cavalier ran into the driver's side rear of her car. She said the white male driver with shaggy black hair sped away. Her passenger believed the Missouri license plate on the suspect car to be either 6K9Z91 or 6K9Z81.

"Neither of these plates matched the alphanumeric format for Missouri license plates, but this was the only information available from the witness. Using LEARN and Vigilant's available commercial LPR data, I ran several partial plate searches and found only one viable match on a gold Cavalier. With the full tag number, and a permissible purpose under the Driver's Privacy Protection Act, I ran the tag through the state's Department of Motor Vehicles database which gave me a registered owner and address. After some investigation, we were able to locate and speak to the owner of the vehicle, who confessed to leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident. Without the historical LPR data from Vigilant, this case would most likely have been closed as inactive and remain unsolved."
