Mobile technology continues to evolve due to advances in hardware and broadband capabilities, which allow greater incorporation of data to facilitate decision-making and relay messages. Public safety, an industry that relies heavily on communicating information to a wide range of constituents, has slowly come to acknowledge the importance of these developments and has begun to incorporate mobile technology. Such technological advances have tangible use-cases in the industry, allowing agencies to increase accountability, improve first-responder safety, and make strategic use of important data. For these reasons, we expect that the market for public safety video cameras and solutions will continue to grow in the future. Developments such as next generation 9-1-1, a move to LTE communications, and greater availability of situational awareness tools will also continue to shape the public safety space for years to come. Although these recent advances make technology more feasible to acquire and implement, impediments to growth persist through such limitations as bureaucratic structures, limited budgets, and lack of IT resources.
Technological advancements in analytics, smart phones, and broadband networks have provided public safety organizations with an opportunity to equip first responders with the information and tools necessary to respond to complex and dangerous situations. The industry has historically produced and stored large amounts of data, but new developments in the ability to store, access, and analyze this data allow law enforcement organizations to better address public safety concerns in their districts and outfit first responders accordingly. First responders can access relevant information from their vehicles, often on either a rugged tablet or a rugged computer. However, this data will increasingly be made available outside the vehicle as well, either on a smartphone or tablet. As more agencies store and manage data digitally in the cloud, first responders can easily access this information from just about anywhere on just about any Internet-connected device. The improved ability to manipulate data for actionable insights, as well as the growing portfolio of public safety devices that provide these insights in the field, are part of an important trend that will mark the future of the industry.
More than half (XX%) of public safety decision-makers in a recent survey identified the cost of deployment as one of the leading barriers to deploying mobile solutions. This unsurprising finding illustrates the significance of budgetary and bureaucratic constraints on the adoption of new technologies. Nonetheless, budgets have generally increased in the past year; XX% of agencies report an increase of more than XX%. Those increases could support investments in smartphones, mobile applications, and wearables. Such tools enhance officer safety through improved, real-time situational awareness and allow greater citizen engagement. While developments in LTE are significant, land mobile radio remains the authoritative source for critical communications, despite slow overall growth in this segment.
Other developments, including the progress of FirstNet and the greater incorporation of connected video cameras, will shape the ways first responders use devices in the field and complete their objectives.
