RAIDS Online iOS, Android, Free

Developed by former police offi cer and crime analyst Sean Bair and BAIR Ana- lytics, this app allows users to search for crime that has occurred around them in a specifi c area/neighborhood and then displays a map with icons for specifi c crimes. The icons are scrubbed to protect victim privacy and feature additional details. Users can add basic analytic layers

to the data, thereby creating a heat map of where crime ‘hot spots’ are lo- cated. For both law enforcement and the public, RAIDS provides a visual representation of crime in any area with data provided directly from the participating agencies.

Motorola Solutions LTE infrastructure, devices and software solutions help protect Rose Parade attendees in the fi rst demonstration of new Los Angeles- area public safety network. Motorola Solutions and the Los Angeles Regional Interoperable Communications System (LA-RICS) successfully demonstrated the long-term evolution (LTE) and land- mobile radio (LMR) networks for the fi rst time during 127th Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, Calif., which at- tracted 750,000 spectators along the 5.5-mile parade route. Motorola Solutions built the LA-RICS networks, which will enable public safety agencies around the greater Los Angeles area to leverage broadband capabilities to improve the safety of its fi rst responders and citizens with the newest technologies. Motorola Solutions’ LEX L10 handheld devices, streaming video applications, and its WAVE™ connectivity software helped fi rst responders maximize the LA-RICS system and raise public safety commu- nications to a new level. The network proved to be essen-

tial during large public events such as the Rose Parade, where crowds overwhelm commercial broadband networks so fi rst responders need a

dedicated network for their mission- critical communications. LA-RICS uti- lized both a broadband LTE network and an LMR system to enhance opera- tions during the demonstration at the Rose Parade and was able to create push-to-talk capability between both networks. During the demonstration, Motorola Solutions’ LEX L10 Mission Critical LTE Handheld devices worked with its public safety software apps such as WAVE Work Group Communications. The technology helped fi rst responders with broadband push-to-talk capability to deliver real-time voice and data se- curely over the network. LA-RICS is among the Early Builder projects under the National Telecom- munications and Information Ad- ministration Broadband Technology Opportunities Program that fi nanced its construction, and is the largest dedicated broadband network that is designed to be part of the FirstNet na- tional broadband system. As the prime contractor for LA-RICS, Motorola Solu- tions continues its leadership in creat- ing public safety broadband networks using both fi xed tower sites and mobile LTE devices to provide a robust broad- band public safety network. iOS, Android; $1.49
