Enhancing Emergency Response with Opticom EVP in Grand Prairie
“It’s not just about protecting the officer and decreasing the response times,” Simpson said, “but protecting the community as well by clearing that intersection before the officer’s vehicle goes through it at a high rate of speed.”
“Watching the dashcam video and seeing the lights change well ahead of the officers to keep those intersections safe for them just shows that the system is effective and has probably saved a lot of lives,” Simpson said. “[Opticom EVP] has been such a benefit to us; I can’t see why any agency wouldn’t want to use it.”
