Mobile technology is used to connect and share data within families and across organizations. Access to data is even more critical in response to a tragic event or law enforcement incident. How can technology help law enforcement responders when they need to react quickly? Larry Rose, Senior Vice President of Commercial Contracts and Procurement at Salient CRGT discusses with Lindy Kyzer, Senior Editor at ClearanceJobs, how technology can allow first responders to connect with both one another and a command center in real time.

“There’s a sense of confusion, even when things are calm and fine,” said Rose, speaking of his time walking alongside corrections officers on a prison campus. Radio is the typical and traditional way for officers to communicate, but it has limitations. “We’re using technology to help that.”
Salient CRGT’s Atlas is an application designed to help a networked community, such as corrections officers, police officers or first responders, see one another in real time, as well as communicate back with a command center. The equipment is as simple as an application loaded onto a smartphone. A command center controls the data analytics, and also issues permissions to individual users.

“We’re never going to be able to prevent everything from happening. But the speed at which we can get control over the confusion is paramount to limiting the amount of damage that occurs and trying to control the environment as quickly as we possibly can. I think that’s where technology really plays a huge part.” Full article at ClearanceJobs.com.
