Everything starts with safety. It’s the constant that empowers people to confidently move forward. Our safety and security ecosystem helps protect people, property and places and enables the collaboration that’s critical between public safety agencies, enterprises and communities for a proactive approach to safety and security.

Join industry specialists as they discuss situations facing our communities today and the ways agencies and communities can improve collaboration and increase safety of citizens and first responders through an integrated ecosystem of technology.

In this webinar, Motorola Solutions’ speakers focus on a school safety scenario to discuss how school faculty and local law enforcement can work together to secure a safe campus and prevent a potential threat from escalating through connected video, software and communication technologies – from solutions such as AI-powered video security that detects anomalies, seamless access control with automated lockdown protocols, to panic button solutions for instant communication between school personnel and law enforcement. Our industry team shares how integrated technology and the use of AI impacts the four operational phases of managing everyday events or emergency incidents:

● Detect: Know what’s happening.

● Analyze: Gather insights quickly.

● Communicate: Connect and inform the right people.

● Manage: Coordinate and manage effectively.
