Wireless surveillance seminars for public safety

Firetide : 17 October, 2007  (New Product)
Firetide and its partners are holding a series of US seminars to enlighten public safety organisations to the power of wireless video surveillance.
To respond to escalating demand for information on using wireless video surveillance for Homeland Security and public safety initiatives, Anixter, Firetide, and OnSSI are hosting a four-city seminar series to provide the "roadmap for success" to public safety agencies. The seminars will deliver insights into policy, technology, funding and deployment issues facing law enforcement when implementing a wireless surveillance network.

The 5-hour seminars will take place at Washington DC, Chicago, Denver and Los Angeles.

Using real-world examples based on Phoenix and Chicago's deployments, participants will get an understanding of how law enforcement agencies are currently using wireless technology to:.

* Minimize incident response times.
* Improve communications with first responders.
* Increase department capabilities without adding more officers.
* Optimise the decision-making process -- especially in situations when rapid access to information may mean the difference between life and death.

Attendees will also receive answers to other key issues, including:.

* Ways to secure funding for video surveillance.
* Steps to ensure successful network deployment and management.
* Keys to reconcile video surveillance and civil liberty issues.

Speakers will include:.
