The technology advancement and transformation sweeping across the public sector looks promising today. The proliferation of internet connected devices, sensors and big data is changing the way public safety communications are made. The current state of interconnected systems and devices such as internet of things (IoT), also presents a tremendous opportunity for today’s public safety professionals to strengthen their national preparedness and improve emergency communications capabilities. The networked connection of people, process and data allows modern cities to take advantage of real-time analytics, which can help them in identifying public safety issues or events of crime right before citizens are affected.
Public safety professionals are also leveraging AI and machine learning applications to quickly and effectively enhance public safety, by getting rid of numerous manual, mundane, detailed, discrete and deceptively complicated processes.

In addition, there’s also a great potential for wearable technology in the event of any disaster or accident.
