Our law enforcement officers are the first line of defense when dealing with crime of any kind.
As citizens, we depend on them to protect and defend us from harm. With this type of job comes a lot of responsibility both in and out of the field.
Interestingly enough, first responders depend more on internet technologies than we could ever imagine. They use these technologies to carry out missions out in the field.
Right now they are dependent on 5G technology and Iot data floods to carry out their work. 5G does offer faster speed and that helps with transmitting data, but 5G still runs on cellular networks and cellular networks can go down or become comprised.
WigL has the ability to work completely around any cellular network. Law enforcement can have the ability to set up their own satellites which can then transmit electrical power to the necessary devices.
Law enforcement officers won’t have to worry about bad cellular network service; with WigL they will be on their own plane, completely run on reliable electricity.
Law enforcement has begun incorporating different types of wearable technologies. One of the most common is the body cam.
Not only do body cams act as a deterrent for criminals since they know that all their police interactions would be recorded, they are also a type of accountability standard for law enforcement.
Most body cameras operate on rechargeable batteries that last around 8 hours (the full length of an officer’s shift). Body cams also store approximately 2GB of data which is uploaded into a law enforcement cloud server.
With WigL wireless power, law enforcement won’t have to worry about the battery life of their body cams.
They can operate on wireless electricity for long periods of time, and even be able to transmit data in a live feed back to headquarters as opposed to uploading to a “cloud server” with worry of a data breach.
Intelligence-led policing has become not only a trend but also one of the best crime-fighting philosophies out there in the past few years. It is viewed as counter-terrorism strategy, but is now a strategy that is applied to a broad spectrum of police issues.
Intelligence-led policing deals with gathering data and statistics and giving it to the officers and assisting the officers in doing their jobs.
While ILP is an amazing strategy, WigL can help raise the bar by allowing information to be transmitted wirelessly, in real time to those fighting crime in the field.
Detectives, investigators, and police officers will all have the ability to solve their cases at a quicker rate because information will constantly be given to them.
