Technology Convergence—Key Trends & Operational Priorities in Public Safety Technology

Technology is transforming justice and public safety operations in fundamental ways. New and emerging technologies are playing an increasingly crucial role in the daily work of frontline police officers, equipping them with enforcement and investigative tools that have the potential of making them significantly better informed, safer and more effective. Technology is also changing the structure and operation of agencies, enabling administrators to more efficiently manage and deploy resources, monitor crime trends with greater precision, and target intervention and investigative assets with greater effectiveness. Technology is facilitating closer and more collaborative relationships between public safety agencies and the community, empowering the general public and raising their expectations regarding the transparency of government agencies. This keynote presentation will examine key trends in technology, policy and practice, and will explore operational priorities facing justice and public safety agencies throughout the nation and around the world.

Building Safer Cities and Thriving Communities: Technology that Turns Information Into Intelligence and Intelligence Into Safety

With the age of the Smartphone, the expectations of citizens have caused public safety/admin officials to look at policing and managing the mobile workforce differently.   Sophisticated social network based threats have emerged, that require agencies to look at policing differently.  Intelligence based policing provides first responders the tools and information they need to make informed response decisions, leading to adequate and informed response teams.  Government agencies increasingly are focusing their attention toward bringing automated intelligence and analytics into their command environments to help alleviate the time mobile workers spend in the field and the ability to analyze and interpret the mass amounts of information.  Citizens expect to be able to send a text, photo and/or video of crimes, services needed, city maintenance, etc.  Seventy percent of police departments are using some form of predictive policing today – video from inside police vehicles, crime mapping analytics software, identifying serial offenders, or using historical data to allocate resources to maintain the peace.  Today’s public safety/admin leaders have recognized the urgency to manage the flood of data to bring focus toward the critical content and alert users to potential threats.  Predictive policing has always been a vital tool of the Command Center;  Motorola’s sophisticated approach to capturing, monitoring, analyzing, and disseminating vital data is at the cornerstone of our solutions.

 This session will focus on the technology and expertise that turns the noise into information, information into intelligence, and intelligence into safety.  All of this leads to safer cities and thriving communities.

Intelligent Policing Solutions from IBM i2

Public safety is essential to the health and vibrancy of a city, but pressures are increasing on public safety officials to reduce costs and gain efficiencies while improving both real and perceived safety levels. At the same time, citizens' expectations of their public safety agencies have changed responding to crime and emergencies to preventing crime and pre-empting emergencies. Traditional approaches are evolving to become more instrumented, interconnected and intelligent. Data analytics and analysis platforms are proving to be a valuable tool in this arena to help agencies meet these daunting challenges. This session will provide an overview of an emerging capability maturity model for the adoption of new technologies within the public safety arena and discuss how agencies can leverage these new technologies to meet specific challenges. From better reporting and dashboards to complex social network analysis and video analytics, technology provides a lever to drastically enhance agency efficiency and improve operations and many agencies are already taking advantage of these capabilities to meet new challenges.

“The police are the public and the public are the police…” The very essence of community policing began in 1829 with these words from Sir Robert Peel. Explore how crowdsourcing can expand the scope, reach and frequency of crime fighting and involve citizens from around the world. With over one billion users on Facebook and over five hundred million on Twitter, social media can shrink the world for law enforcement and the criminals they pursue.
