Communications — in more ways than one — continue to be a focus for county law enforcement agencies, according to survey data released by the Public Technology Institute.
As part of the group’s 2018 Law Enforcement Technology Priorities national survey, agency officials reported radio communications and information sharing as two of the top five highest-priority technology projects over the next five years.
Next-generation 911, mobile data access and smart devices were cited as the other three top highest-priority technology projects for county law enforcement going forward.
“The insight and experiences that these officials shared provide a picture of how technology is being used in local law enforcement,” a PTI spokesman told StateScoop in an email.
The survey, conducted during the summer of 2018, was intended to “develop a better understanding of the technology, operational and management issues within local government law enforcement agencies.”
