C5 Panama: Deploying Advanced Command & Control Technology to Improve Public Safety
Belisario Tejada, Technology Director, Panama Public Safety Ministry
The Ministry of Public Security of Panama and Panamanian Public Forces are responsible for overseeing and improving citizen security. The government of Panama is committed to keeping its population safe and enhancing emergency response by implementing innovative technology solutions to aid its national citizen security strategy. In November 2016, Panama and Canada governments signed an agreement to create an integrated command-and-control, communication, computing and coordination center, known as C5. This initiative launched in January 2019 to strengthen public security for Pope Francisco’s visit during the 2019 World Youth Day event in Panama.
In this session, learn how C5 supports coordination and collaboration between personnel from 26 different security forces and emergency response agencies. C5 is a fully integrated system that includes computer-aided dispatch with geolocation capabilities for police, emergency medical services, and fire and rescue. It also includes an open video surveillance system, emergency panic buttons, smartphone apps for citizen collaboration and incident reporting, and video analytics, such as biometric facial and license plate recognition.
Performance Metrics: How Does Your PSAP Measure Up?
Selena MacArthur, Telecommunications Program Manager, Washington D.C., Office of Unified Communications Rob Farmer, Business Development Partner Manager, NICE Public Safety
You’ve heard the old saying, “You can’t manage what you can’t measure.” This especially rings true with 911, when seconds can mean the difference between life and death. All 911 centers have performance targets, but how do you know if your agency is measuring the right things? Is there an easier way to track metrics than spending countless hours manually compiling spreadsheets and data? In this session, learn how technology can break down data barriers by leveraging GIS mapping and consolidating information from your I/CAD system, phone, radio, recording, and quality assurance solutions. Experts will also share best practices for creating and measuring PSAP performance and provide results from a recent metrics survey of more than 200 PSAPs nationwide.
