About this project
How does it work? It’s Simple …you attach the device to your belt or the inside pocket of your blazer. In an emergency you push the panic button on the device you’re location is immediately displayed on the console map indicating an alarm activation while displaying your physical address.
Did you know?
Most Police and College Safety Agencies in the U.S have zero-capabilities to track Officers.
- Currently some departments have AVL (Automated Vehicle Locators) installed on the police computers. That just track where the vehicle goes. If the officer is outside of there vehicle, on foot, or off duty the location of their car doesn’t help them. They have to rely on checking in with dispatch by phone.
Most Detectives, Internal Affairs, and High Ranking Officers don’t always have computers in their cars because of their roles.
My Aunt, a former Deputy Chief didn’t have a laptop or radio inside of her car.
These officers rely heavily on cell phones if they’re outside the office to check-in, and if something happens they may not be able to report incidents right away. If placed in a life threatening situation they may not have the time or ability to request help at all.
Officers often use their cell phones when Outside of Radio Coverage.
This device doesn’t rely on the radio tower. It uses GSM Cellular (Cell phone towers) to transmit data, just like police computers.
Currently most U.S radio systems today do not have the ability to determine an officers location.
Radio systems used today by police have panic buttons that only give them an open-mic, the ability to talk hands-free and the ability to interrupt current radio traffic. Once that Officer has an open mic he must yell out his location. In a loud environment like a public event or physical struggle the officer may not be heard or understood.
With this device Law Enforcement no longer has to worry about being outside of there car, In a loud environment, during an altercation, having time to use a cellphone, or NOT RECEIVING help at all. The Dispatcher and other officers will immediately get location information without needing the officer to say a word.
Fits on a belt clip or inside of a jacket pocket. The size of a cellphone, takes less time than using cellphone, one button and DONE.
Perfect Solution for
- Police Administration
- Off Duty Officers
- Civilian Employees (Process Servers)
- Campus Security or Police
- Convention Center Security
- Private Security teams
- Federal Agents
We are also looking into possibly setting up a monitoring service. It may be possible to sell the devices to a police department and offer to monitor all devices for a fee. If we receive an alarm from any of the devices we could then relay that information to their dispatch center.
Just an idea..but I welcome all questions and love to hear any suggestions you may have! The first 5 donors who pledge $1000 or more will be offered to join in on a Cisco WebEx meeting to discuss all opinions and idea, and will be invited to meet and discuss any future plans. Everyone who donates will be posted on a dedicated page on the company website.
Risks and challenges
Money raised will go towards these specific challenges but not limited to:
– Securing storage space for servers and device orders
– Computer servers to host Mapping software and process all data from the devices
– Designing and Testing our product.
– Software Engineering.
– Producing and selling our product.
