About this talk

Leverage your community relationships for better policing! With recent terrorist attacks, law enforcement agencies are investing in new, sensor-based technologies (surveillance systems, drones, etc.) and location-based data feeds to gather intelligence and respond proactively to public safety concerns. A key challenge for law enforcement is how to tap into the vast amount of data being generated by private citizens. Videos, photos, and social media posts, created using smartphones, have the potential to provide first responders with information that could aid in their efforts. In this webcast, hear how the Miami-Dade police department has developed a new smartphone application, the Community on Patrol (COP) app, which deputizes the county's 2.6 million residents and improves community relations. You'll gain an overview of the COP technology, as well as lessons learned by Miami-Dade County in the development and launch of their new smartphone application. You'll see how the citizens of Miami-Dade are communicating directly with their real-time crime center to send videos and photos, make 911 calls, and submit tips to police for response and follow-up. Join this webcast to learn how to: Implement best practices for building a citizen and police mobile collaboration platform. Leverage the elasticity of cloud computing to develop smart phone technologies. Maximize the potential of apps to fight terrorism, reduce crime, and improve public safety.
