Location-Based Services in Public Safety
Track: Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice
Authors: Tom Casady
Location-based services (LBS) have tremendous potential in public safety, for both delivering information to the public and to public safety employees such as police officers, firefighters, and paramedics. While a few location-based service apps are available now, opportunities abound for improving the uptake of this technology in public safety. During this presentation, I will focus on an LBS app created as part of a National Institute of Justice research project, CrimeView NEARme.
