HigherGround, a developer of solution-based software that captures, stores, and retrieves telecommunications, location, and radio data, announced the introduction of Live911, a first-ever solution to securely livestream 911 emergency calls directly to authorized officers in the field and provide precise GPS map location of the caller, the company said.
With Live911, officers can hear the caller´s voice in real-time revealing the sense of urgency, small details that may not otherwise be provided, and have access to immediate updates on the situation. This new technology provides a “head start” for officers monitoring incoming 911 calls within their particular area by eliminating standard delays from dispatching. In police response, minutes or even seconds matter.
The vision for closing the gap between police dispatcher to first responders came from retired Chula Vista Police Captain Fritz Reber. For more than a year, HigherGround and the Chula Vista Police Department partnered to develop, refine, and test this technology. Live911 is currently being fully deployed throughout CVPD and beta tests are completing at police departments in Clovis, CA and Polk County, FL.
Live911 is now available for purchase, training and deployment at police agencies across the country. For more information, view video. To schedule a demo, visit www.live911.com.
