Sepura changing the way the police are policing

Published

on

Sepura is changing the way police officers and force control rooms are able to communicate with each other.

There new revolutionary technology image allows the transfer of pictures from the force control room to the mobile devices of field personnel.

The application, was launched at the Critical Communications Middle East event in Dubai, can send images to a wide variety of devices including, notably and uniquely, TETRA radios, widely used by mission critical organisations globally.

Jonathan Hamill, Sepura’s Vice President Applications, commented, “IMAGE provides a major boost to Public Safety and other organisations that have the need to push key visual and associated textual information to field personnel, providing them with a clear and concise set of information on which to act. Mission critical organisations that rely on narrow-band bearers such as TETRA for voice and data communications benefit as the server optimises band-width usage, and compresses the data in an appropriate manner for the network and devices of users in the field.

“IMAGE’s many uses include, delivering a photo of a missing person to police officers; sending still pictures from CCTV or video surveillance footage to security forces to apprehend suspects; dispatching a picture of suspected drugs smugglers to customs authorities; or disseminating a building floor plan or hazardous material information to fire and rescue personnel.”

The application is scalable for use in any sized network, and can be accessed simultaneously by multiple client applications and multiple users in different geographic locations, therefore supporting either multi-agency or multi organisation use. It can be used from a client application provided by Sepura, or integrated into existing command and control systems via an API.

Sepura’s Head of Technology and Innovation, Peter Hudson, said, “IMAGE’s new modern interface is intuitive to use and includes drag and drop functionality, reducing training time and, crucially, increasing the speed at which an operator can react in an emergency situation. The application also supports a wide range of languages via a custom import process, which can be easily managed by the user.

Jonathan Hamill concluded, “IMAGE is an application with many unique features designed to increase the efficiency of organisations where fast, clear and accurate information transfer is vital for their mission and business critical communications.”

Hero Cops save girls life of girl who wanted to kill herself

Published

on

Two fast-thinking police officers have helped saved the life of a girl who text her mate saying she wanted to end her life. Officers were quickly alerted and began searching for the girl.

The officers were alerted to the incident in the early hours of November 14, when Police Constables Daryl Jones and Mark Bullock, from Southend’s Local Policing Team, were patrolling Southend.

With the clock against them, the officers began searching the area and found a girl who matched the description. She had walked four miles from her home alone after sneaking out in the middle of the night and was on her way to Southend town centre to harm herself. The pair pulled over and approached the girl cautiously.

Upon seeing the officers, the girl broke down and became upset. Daryl and Mark reassured her that they were there to help her. After calmly engaging with the girl, the officers managed to negotiate with her to get in the police car so they could get her out of the cold and talk to her.

She spoke openly with Daryl and Mark about the difficulties she had been experiencing and how she had text her friend in the hope that the friend would get help for her.

She thanked the officers for finding her so quickly and the pair reassured her that they would get her the further help she needed.

Daryl waited with her whilst Mark made a difficult call to her parents to inform them of the situation and that their daughter had not come to any harm. Her dad thanked the officers for finding his daughter so quickly and ensuring her safety.

The girl was taken to a mental health suite for assessment and her parents thanked the officers again for finding their daughter so quickly and getting her the help she needed.

Daryl said: “I’ve never seen more of a genuine reaction for help from someone than when the young girl broke down when she saw myself and Mark and knew we were there to help her.”

Mark said: “We were just fortunate that we were in the right place at the right time and were able to locate her and help her, I have no doubt if we hadn’t of found her it would have been a different outcome.”

A Police Dog who was stabbed while chasing a suspected thief has come together with Police Hour to inspire a Charity Christmas Card.

Not just any Christmas Card these cards have been specially designed and drawn by a very brave nine-year-old boy with cancer named Alex Goodwin.

German Shepherd Finn was stabbed on 5th October in Stevenage, His Handler PC Dave Wardell was also injured.

Alex was as devastated when he read that Finn and PC Wardell has been attacked. Alex began drawing pictures of Finn so the idea of a Christmas card was created and they sold out within one day.

Police officer’s son Alex is undergoing chemotherapy for Ewing Sarcoma, a type of bone cancer that affects fewer than 30 children in the UK each year. He faces further “complex” surgery at Christmas.

There is now a change the law regarding attacks on police dogs and horses. Please make sure your sign it.
