Discussion: Technology in Public Safety

I’m studying for my Law class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?

Do some research on a public safety agency and find out what types of technologies it uses. Select an agency and a technology it uses in its organization. For example, some fire departments use the social media application Twitter to report fires. Based on your selected agency and technology, build a case for how and why this particular technology is used. Consider answering these questions:

  • What is the public safety agency?
  • What is the technology you are focusing on?
  • How is this technology managed and leveraged in the organization?
  • Where does it fit into the overall mission and vision of the organization?

Respond to two peers and discuss why the selected technology is important for the particular organization. Address any potential maintenance that this technology may require, such as employee training or cost. As a public safety administrator, would you consider continuing to use this technology?

Refer to the Discussion Rubric for directions on completing these discussions.
