FRONTIER JUSTICE HOSTED LIVE-FIRE DEMONSTRATION FOR NEW TECHNOLOGY FROM SPRINT

Lee’s Summit, Mo. (May 12, 2017) – Sprint spent the day last Friday at Frontier Justice demonstrating a new device that signals first responders immediately when a law enforcement officer wearing an “officer down” vest is shot or stabbed.

AID – Automated Injury Detection – is made specifically for law enforcement personnel and first responders.  It sends an immediate call for help to other officers and medical personnel when an officer is attacked in the line of duty. Sprint has teamed with the developer of this technology, Select Engineering Services (SES), to first bring it to the Wyandotte County Sheriff’s Office in Kansas City, KS.

AID transmits an alert message that contains the officer’s ID, the location of the attack shown on a map with GPS coordinates, the location of the injuries (front, back, upper chest, lower chest, upper back, lower back), and other medical information such as blood type and allergies.  The data is sent via the Sprint cellular network to all other designated officers on the network.  The AID Sensor Panel inserts into the body armor without any modification. 

The “live fire” demonstration of the technology held at Frontier Justice on Friday, May 12th gave local police departments, police chiefs, sheriffs and other command staff in public safety a chance to witness the new technology in person.

“This has been a critical project for our public sector group,” said Jim Spillane, Sprint’s Director of Public Sector.  “We believe the safety of law enforcement and the ability to help them quickly when their life is in danger is the highest priority we have. The AID technology can help save lives and we’re proud to have worked with SES to launch it.”
