With advanced technology, law enforcement agencies benefit from the ability to be at the right place at the right time — and with the right tools to enable critical communications so officers have the real-time information they need. With the capabilities of smart sensors, smart surveillance, license plate readers and recorders, and the ability to readily push this data to headquarters and responding emergency workers, the system can be advanced to reach vast capabilities in the detection, determination, and deterrence of criminal activity.
IoT also opens the doors for the opportunity to have rapidly deployable temporary networks. A temporary pop-up network, such as an Emergency Command Center or even a command vehicle at a large event helps public safety officials monitor large gatherings of people to ensure maximum community safety. These pop-up networks also aid in disaster recovery from events such as hurricanes, earthquakes, wide fires and human-caused events like terrorist attacks and active shooters.
Join Michael Fletcher, business development manager and retired San Bernardino County Deputy Sheriff, and Estee Woods, director of public sector and public safety marketing, both of Cradlepoint, for this webinar for an overview of IoT applications taking effect in public safety and real-world uses cases.
