In law enforcement, situational awareness is paramount, and NowForce’s software and mobile apps expand agency communications by syncing all officers, supervisors, and chiefs.
Silver Springs, MD (PRWEB) October 24, 2014
NowForce, a developer of cutting-edge emergency response solutions, has announced its newest offering, NowForce Law Enforcement. The announcement comes just days before the 2014 International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Conference and Expo in Orlando, where NowForce will officially unveil the solution.
NowForce’s law enforcement solution provides agencies with enhanced situational awareness of their resources and developing incidents, real-time incident management and resource optimization from any device, and the ability to minimize response times by sending the closest available and relevant officers.
“In law enforcement, situational awareness is paramount, and NowForce’s software and mobile apps expand agency communications by syncing all officers, supervisors, and chiefs,” said Assaf Shafran, NowForce CEO.
With NowForce Law Enforcement, both headquarters and personnel in the field have access to a geographical action map that has tips and information feeding into it in real-time. With blue-force tracking via officers’ smartphones or GPS trackers, the solution allows for auto-dispatching, status updates, video streaming and reports, both from the field to dispatch and vice versa. When extra personnel are needed during crisis situations, the system enables agencies to reach off-duty officers without compromising their privacy.
Furthermore, the solution also provides responding officers with critical data via a smartphone app, such as type of incident and priority level, location of incident and nearby points of interest, location of other officers and resources, navigation, field reporting, a one-swipe “man down” button, and a chat feature.
“We’ve taken the best features of mobile data terminals and AVL systems and integrated them into a smartphone application, which leaves radio channels free for when they’re really needed. Imagine all the data an officer in the field would need, right in his or her pocket,” says Shafran.
NowForce also offers a suite of personal safety apps, so that agencies can provide their constituents with a direct way to report distress situations, emergencies and anonymous tips into the local 9-1-1 or command center. These alerts automatically open a new incident in the agency’s dispatch system that shows the caller’s location.
NowForce offers comprehensive mobile solutions for emergency response and security organizations, enabling reduced response times, full situational awareness, and enhanced communications. The company’s solutions make it simple for agencies to locate, communicate with, and dispatch the closest available responder to the scene. NowForce systems are used by law enforcement, campus security, private security, and other public safety agencies around the world. Learn more at: http://www.nowforce.com
