NJII has formed a partnership with the Rutgers University Center on Policing aimed at helping police, first responder and campus safety personnel become more effective through the use of emerging new smart technologies.
The rapid advancement of approaches such as artificial intelligence, video analytics and Internet of Things is dramatically transforming every aspect of the world today including the public safety field. Exciting new capabilities and functions are being developed at a pace unmatched in history. Taking advantage of these burgeoning new solutions is critical for the public safety community to keep pace as urban areas develop into “smart cities” and incorporate their own technological advances and approaches.
The NJII-led Public Safety Consortium will work with key New Jersey stakeholders across the state to identify transformative smart technologies and capabilities that can be tested and applied by local police, school safety officials, first responders, and others to improve public and campus safety.
