New - Public Safety Survey 2017 – Europe, Middle-East and Africa Edition
The Motorola Public Safety Survey, has become an invaluable reference on the trends and needs for communications technology for police, fire, rescue, emergency medical services and other public safety and government agencies.
In our 2015 Survey Europe and Africa special edition, we found that Public Safety communications were being transformed. The survey revealed how four key factors influence agencies of all sizes, and how change was driven by high speed data and a need for communications across multiple networks and devices including radios, smartphones and tablets. We found that being able to access data in real-time is vital. An overwhelming 77% of participants said having instant, reliable information at their fingertips is ‘critical’ or ‘very important’ while working in the field.
What has changed since the last survey?
Are cloud solutions now suitable for Public Safety agencies? Can body-worn cameras help keep officers safe and address questions around police conduct? Can social media help agencies communicate important information to the public more quickly? Or can agencies use social media to gain more information during an emergency?
We are repeating the survey in 2017 for all of Europe, Middle-East and Africa. We want your input as we investigate the top trends in Public Safety communications technology in 2017. Make your voice heard on a variety of topics including the use of video, smart devices, cloud, and social media in Public Safety, as well as the latest status and expectations of Public Safety LTE and the impact it will have on Public Safety technology.
What will we learn this year? Take the survey now and, in return for your participation, we will share the final report with you as soon as it is ready.
We look forward to hearing what you have to say. The survey is quick, easy, and should only take you a few minutes to complete.
