Crime overall is decreasing, but chaotic events such as extreme weather, domestic terrorist attacks, gun violence, and opioid-related emergencies are increasing, requiring highly coordinated response protocols. From raucous inner cities to sleepy suburbs, the scope and nature of these threats demand a new way of thinking and acting — a new, frictionless collaboration among agencies, departments, and vendor partners.1
Ideally, public safety professionals are already fitted with the latest smartphones, laptops, and tablets to receive targeted information about situations, individuals, and locations before they respond. However, when police, fire, EMT, first responders, and even utility companies can communicate and share data via secure channels, the severity and length of incidents may be lessened, and lives can be saved.
This is the next phase of digital age public safety. As more public safety leaders get introduced to sophisticated surveillance and big data technologies, they realize the benefits are within reach, if they can:
Develop a roadmap with support from tech vendors and partners
Gain funding for each step of a long-term project
Ensure everyone is committed to learning and using these new tools to achieve their mission better
