Database Database Specialist, Specialist, Public Public Outreach Outreach 2 Background In times of need people call 9-1-1 for emergency assistance. Personal Crimes (i.e. Robberies, Assaults) Accidents and/or Injuries Existing security paradigms rely on verbal communication with people in need which usually comes after the event has occurred.

During a personal crime the victim often cannot call 9-1-1 for fear of aggravating the assailant. 2/25/20 3 Response Time U.S. Department of Justice Office of Justice Programs Bureau of Justice Statistics http://bjs.ojp.usdoj.gov/content/pub/pdf/cvus07. pdf Page 115, Table 107

2/25/20 4 Societal Problem In the event of a personal crime or emergency, security professionals at higher education, business and civil complexes need an effective way to allow individuals to quickly and silently communicate their location to first responders. 2/25/20 5 Proposed Solution Individuals would be equipped with a key fob. Pressing a button or combination of buttons would trigger an alert at a security dispatch

center. The alert would be repeated every 30 seconds until first responders reset the unit. 2/25/20 6 How It Would Work Through a series of transceivers that signal would be translated to dispatch. When a fob button(s) is pushed a signal would be sent out.

The dispatch station will have a graphic user interface that maps the location of the emergency beacon. Once activated the fob would automatically repeat its broadcast until reset by responders. Dispatch would route a responder at a high priority to assess the situation.

2/25/20 7 Benefits of Solution Aids in improving response time First responders do not need location information from victims. Victims do not have to fumble around for a cell phone and dial a number; a button push is all that is required to summon aid. If the victim is moving (i.e. on the run), the system will report their movement. Based on proven technology. Could act as a deterrent. 2/25/20 8 Competition
