To show the real power of innovation transforming public safety, Cisco delivered a live theater presentation every 30 minutes that took the audience on a journey through an 8-minute scenario based on actual events. As a gang drive-by shooting takes place, audience members can see events unfold and how technology can help improve the response, and increase the speed and precision of the decision making process.  

Solutions shown included Command, Control and Collaboration; Automated License Plate Recognition; Emergency Communications and Collaboration; Tactical and Command Vehicle Communications; CAD Sensor and Video Integration; In-Car Video; Video Surveillance and Analytics; Incident Command And Response – NIMS; Comprehensive Voice Interoperability; Gunshot Location And Detection with Video; Mobile Computing and Rugged Handhelds, and; Alerting and Notification.

Cisco demonstrated solutions in each of the following areas: headquarters, operations, and emergency communications; incident command and response; field operations and patrol; and the Cisco open platforms for safety and security. We hope you walked away with an understanding of why an open platform for safety and security, based on Cisco’s IP networking technologies, can help public safety achieve speed and precision in its operations.
