Commentary and Opinions

The Defense Information Systems Agency recently certified its first secure mobile device running on the Android operating system, further demonstrating the growing importance of mobile devices within government agencies.
Although historians may characterize 2011 differently than I do, I believe that many in the government and public safety arena likely will remember this as the “Year of the Natural Disaster.” From the unparalleled Japanese tsunami to wildfires and tornadoes that literally destroyed entire communities and droughts that plagued many parts of the United States, we have come face-to-face with natural disasters of epic proportions. 
Existing public safety communications systems are pretty dumb. Not dumb, as in a stupid idea, but dumb as in only able to do the one thing for which they were built. A Land Mobile Radio (LMR) can transmit only voice and only to compatible radios. Once the first units of a communications system have been distributed, it is a costly decision to add features which will make new equipment incompatible with the installed base. Therefore, we largely operate at the lowest common denominator.
Securing our cities in a post 9-11 environment -- characterized by terrorist actions, civil unrest and natural disasters -- has emerged as one of the biggest challenges facing security professionals around the world. Leading-edge technologies for citywide monitoring and collaboration are widely available to improve security, but progress has been slow.
A woman in Black Hawk County, Iowa was alone upstairs when her former boyfriend -- who had a history of domestic violence -- entered her home. Afraid that the sound of her voice would reveal her location, she used her cell phone to send a text message to 9-1-1. A few minutes later, police officers arrived at the scene and arrested the ex-boyfriend for violating a court order requiring him to stay away from the woman.
