Providing real-time situational awareness and making information and intelligence available and searchable around the clock, to the entire agency, is invaluable for officer safety and crime reduction.
Pressure mounts on hospital disaster response officials during every major hurricane.
NC4 has introduced a blog series titled "The Essence of NC4 Street Smart: A 12-part Blog Series", to share with our readers what the 'essence' of our law enforcement solution, Street Smart really is. This post is the first blog in this series.
This blog series will introduce each of the six pillars identified by the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing and the basis of each pillar.
Common definitions for the term 'essence' center on the intrinsic nature or indispensable quality of something. Its character. The heart and soul. Substance. Principle. NC4 wants to share with the readers of this blog what the 'essence' of our law enforcement solution, Street Smart, really is in a 12-part series of blogs throughout 2018.

Enabling faster communication allows officers to spend more time fighting crime, and less effort wading through unimportant information to find what matters.
