Inormation is everywhere in our cities. Environmental sensors mounted on public transit vehicles measureair quality while wireless control sensors keep trac lights rom conspiring against drivers. City bike-sharesystems connect directly to the Web while city apps inorm us when our bus is running late. Citizens use socialmedia to engage directly with public service departments while city cameras send real-time streams to keeprst responders a step ahead. Within the inormation fowing between citizens, responders and agencies is theintelligence that builds saer cities and thriving communities.Vitalizing our cities and making them more attractive is the one clear ocus o all government agencies. Every dollar opublic saety investment has been shown to return 5 dollars o economic development results. At the same time, orevery homicide that occurs in a city, the total population declines by 70 people. Government leaders understand theneed to continually get better at public saety perormance because we want our cities to thrive.However, tight budgets in all levels o government and taxpayers wanting to pay less seem to contradictexpectations or greater protection, saety and service – unless government can nd ways to do more with less.And scrutiny o public saety perormance data is growing as that data becomes increasing more transparentand publicly available; knowing that citizens are paying attention urther increases the pressure to move thoseperormance numbers in the right direction.

This paper considers the technology infections taking place in the industry today that are most dramaticallypoised to transorm government operations and help achieve the key perormance metrics o city ocials. Ourleaders are determined to use technology to evolve government into a platorm or interaction, moving away roma vending machine model where citizens put in money and receive a service (and perhaps kick it i it doesn’t work).City leaders are looking to these technology infections to elevate their service delivery at lower cost to taxpayerswhile enabling high standards or more open, participatory government. Leaders have high expectations or howthese technologies will help government collect more inormation rom across their cities, synthesize to ndpatterns and make smarter decisions, and distribute it to the people who need it, when they need it.Government leaders see technology investments that will help them better collect, lter and share inormationwith mobile proessionals in the eld as a critical imperative toward advancing their goals or providing exceptionalservice delivery with orce multiplier benets that lower taxpayer cost. More than 60 percent o them will prioritizeinvestments in mobile broadband technologies to support advanced data communications in the next two years.This is an incredibly transormative period or government. There is such an acceleration o technology today, and it isbringing capabilities and use cases along with it that are wholly unprecedented. When citizen-generated inputs marrywith public saety inputs and voice, data and video merge into a single unied stream, multiple perspectives becomea single point o view and we move rom reacting at a moment’s notice to whatever comes our way to intelligentprediction, communication centers can anticipate, orecast and predict. Actions in the eld become more inormedand collaborative. ”Ready or anything” becomes “ready or what’s next.”
