Wearables for Police #WearableWednesday

Via Wearable-technologies

In the last years, more and more wearable devices are being adapted for law enforcement. Next-generation wearables have the potential to enable police officers to improve situational awareness and decision making during missions. Law enforcement needs real-time information for better situational awareness in the field and at the command center. Officers need access to information, to stream videos and to collaborate in real time. Therefore departments are experimenting with adaptable versions of wearable devices like glasses or body-worn cameras. So let us introduce you to some interesting products which will help police officers during missions.

Si Serie by Motorola

By integrating unparalleled voice communications, immersive data applications and robust security into purpose-built systems, devices and command centers, Motorola helps police officers work safer and smarter to improve real-time decision-making capabilities. They provide a unified, simplified, smart approach to capturing, storing, managing and sharing multimedia content for greater public transparency and accountability. The Si Series of body-worn cameras dramatically increases situational awareness, information gathering and evidence collection in the field. Unlike typical body-worn cameras, the Si Series combines voice communications, real-time video, still images, voice recording and emergency alerting in one. Sleek, rugged and feature-rich, the Si Series is paving the way for convergence by reducing the number of devices first responders wear in the field today.
