Top 10 Law Enforcement Consulting/Services Companies - 2020
Today, for all the rewards there are risks, and so the growing need for a tech-aware and tech-enabled police force is clear. Delivering on a leading-edge technology security posture is now a must. For public safety and law enforcement, it essentially translates to the realignment of investment in technology, innovation, and practices to more effectively execute an agency’s or department’s mission.
Apart from existing biometric data such as facial, voice, and iris recognition, and gait analysis, law enforcement agencies are now also using emerging technologies like augmented reality, body cameras, license plate readers, and more. From automatic license plate recognition that empowers officers with more accurate knowledge before an encounter to vehicle-based video that provides an extra set of eyes so that officers are never alone. For today’s public safety officers, these data can offer actionable insights and open new ways of policing. Additionally, with so much of public lives logged digitally, leveraging the value of existing police data with “open data” that exists online will provide more information for officers in real-time. To this end, artificial intelligence and machine learning are already playing a key role in data science.
Together with that, various other nascent technologies are showing potential in transforming the more operational side of the law enforcement work. For example, the upcoming rollout of 5G technology is promised to catalyze this process, enabling the use of body-worn surveillance devices and biometric technologies, including new facial recognition checks. And it’s more important than ever to deploy these solutions with a focus on cybersecurity protections. Today, the public safety sector faces innumerable challenges from new and evolving threats and trends, and they are more often than not ill-equipped to face these trials.
