Intel Security’s Director of Homeland/National Security Programs Patrick Flynn recently posted a blog about the potential for FirstNet enabled devices to revolutionize the public safety landscape. He noted a number of devices and applications, including Haystax’s Mobile Field Interview™ application, enabling public safety personnel to capture field interview (FI) information from an iOS or Android device.
Rather than relying on cumbersome, inefficient paper notecards, law enforcement officials can conduct these FIs through Haystax’s app and sync the resulting notes to the cloud. Indexed FIs become viewable and searchable by other members of the organization, resulting in increased information sharing and efficiency.
Solutions like Mobile Field Interview™ will soon find increased usage with the development of FirstNet, a first-of-its kind broadband network dedicated to public safety, providing a single, interoperable platform for emergency and daily safety communications. FirstNet will provide a shared operating picture and increased situational awareness, further improving emergency response times and increased efficacy during emergencies.
