Survey: Cameras, Radios Top Technology Priorities for Law Enforcement
Thursday, July 09, 2015 | Comments

Body-worn cameras (62.3 percent) and radio communications (52.6 percent) were the top two technology priorities facing local government law enforcement officials, according to the results of a survey conducted by the Public Technology Institute (PTI) and Deltek.

Mobile data, smart devices and public-safety applications all tied for third on the list. Rounding out the top five were information sharing and social media tracking.

More than 400 law enforcement officials from across the U.S., representing villages, towns, cities and counties contributed to the survey. The survey looks at technology adoption and deployment; operations, budgets and funding; public-safety answering points (PSAPs); and what keeps law enforcement officials up at night.

Since 2014, 80 percent of respondents said their spending levels have stayed the same or increased. More than half of PSAPs surveyed said they have completed a next-generation 9-1-1 (NG 9-1-1) upgrade or are in the process. Another nearly 15 percent are planning for an NG 9-1-1 upgrade.
