Let’s face it – today’s society lives and breathes technology. So when it comes to implementing technology into public safety practices, it’s an absolute necessity.
State Tech Magazine makes a strong case for public safety technology, as they address the impact of mobile devices in incident reporting. Statistics show that 70% to 80% of 911 calls come from wireless devices. And with the majority of these devices being smartphones, they produce special data that can be vital pieces in effectively reporting and solving crimes, such as videos and pictures from crime scenes.
Most importantly, when agencies use our system, we make sure that it is easy to use and access. Our system is available on mobile devices and it is completely configurable, allowing platform customization that caters to various agency needs, with no coding required.
The article also makes the case of needing to provide text message communication for reporting crime for the deaf community, as well as for domestic violence cases. This way, verbal communication isn’t required to report crimes.
NENA has urged agencies to update their public safety technology so that crime can be reported from any device at any time.
We stand by State Tech Magazine and NENA on these issues. Just as we believe victims should be able to report crime as conveniently and easily as possible through technology, we believe that agencies should have top-of-the-line technology to efficiently and accurately receive and document reports.
We classify ourselves as a technology company. By this, we’ve created three unique systems that cater to a variety of agencies.
All of our systems use state-of-the-art technology consisting of a mobile platform designed for Apple and Android phones and tablets, which easily integrates with our Windows and Mac platforms. We’ve also made our systems completely configurable, allowing agencies to use modules that will best suit their needs, from Mass Notifications to Silent Dispatch.
Through technology, incident management software and agencies are able to protect communities like never before. As the industry grows, we will continue to grow with it, and continue to make safety as easy as possible.
