Homeland security, justice and public safety agencies all face tough challenges: smaller budgets, staffing reductions and increasing threats on a variety of fronts. Fortunately today’s technologies
provide robust capabilities — along with lower costs, faster deployments and increased user acceptance — to address these challenges. They also greatly increase
the ability to share information and collaborate among agencies.
Today’s technologies are a giant leap forward over those of even two years ago. Tools like 4G, wireless video and GPS are enabling greater productivity and effectiveness from public safety personnel — at all levels of government. They also improve responders’ safety.
Wireless video surveillance, for example, is greatly improved thanks to better connectivity and smaller, mobile cameras that produce high-definition images. Officers can get a clearer picture going into a potentially dangerous situation because video can be streamed to them directly on
mobile devices. Today’s wireless systems can be set up quickly and inexpensively. And they’re commercially available, so they’re easy to purchase. Sprint’s 3G and 4G networks provide a secure and dependable backbone.
