Graffiti detection sensor

Broadband Discovery Systems, Inc., has developed a graffiti detection sensor, dubbed Project Merlin, that works in real time.

Interoperability solution

Sprint and Motorola, Inc., announce the availability of a local, regional, and national network interoperability solution.

To enable this interoperability, Motorola has developed a gateway—the MOTOBRIDGE IP Interoperable solution—that facilitates the integration of disparate networks (different bands, system types, or vendors) to provide enhanced communications among users for day-to-day or emergency applications.

Training guide

Support Law Enforcement’s training guide Strengthening Law Enforcement Communities provides practical guidance for agencies to develop a support structure for their communities.

The goal of this training program is to help agencies positively affect the entire law enforcement community. Sections of the training focus on understanding the culture, getting to know the agency, benefits and financial affairs, personal and relationship support, and support structure cycle.
