For police officers, fire fighters, emergency medical technicians, security guards, and Homeland Security personnel, fast access and response is critical and can mean the difference between life and death. The ability to quickly access information and communicate from the field with other personnel and headquarters is crucial.
Public safety wireless broadband networks enable police, fire, EMS as well as other safety and security personnel to reliably and securely access the same resources from the field as they do in the station. These networks provide safety and security personnel with reliable, secure access to the information they need, wherever they are, enabling them to more effectively and efficiently protect people and property.
high-speed access to data and video enables offices to identify suspects and file reports in the field, allowing them to more effectively police and spend more time on the street protecting the community.
download building blueprints and hazmat data while in transit make fire fighters better prepared when they arrive at an incident location.
communicate live with doctors, providing a patient’s vitals and live video of injuries while en route, enabling the hospital to be better prepped to assist trauma patients when they arrive.
Tropos public safety wireless broadband networks enable field deployment of many applications that deliver broad safety and security benefits. Some examples include:
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma operates more than 200 municipal applications over its Tropos public safety wireless broadband network including police applications such as in-field suspect identification, in-car access to over 300 video cameras around the city, and in-field report writing and submission and fire department applications such as en-route planning using site maps, building floor plans, hazardous materials locations and hydrant locations and access to the OKCFD resource library including best practices for mitigating a hazardous materials spill and GIS information.
Corpus Christi, Texas uses its Tropos network, originally installed to support water and gas AMR, to support safety and security personnel.
Savannah, Georgia is leveraging networked video surveillance to increase safety and security and offset a shortage of officers.
Rock Hill, South Carolina uses cameras mounted in police vehicles to stream video over the network to a centralized monitoring center when officers are investigating or responding to an incident.
