NexusTalks: From Safer to Smarter

On Oct 17th, AFHU’s Northeast Region hosted From Safer to Smarter, a NexusTalks event featuring Lieutenant Johnmichael O’Hare, Commander of the Vice, Intelligence, and Narcotics Division for the Hartford Police Department. Lieutenant O’Hare spoke about the ways in which the City of Hartford’s Capital City Command Center is using Briefcam, a technology developed by Professor Shmuel Peleg at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Professor Peleg was a speaker at NexusIsrael 2017.

After being introduced by NEXUS:ISRAEL Advisory Board member David Dabscheck, Lieutenant O’Hare explained that Briefcam has myriad applications, each of which add great value to Hartford and other cities using the technology. Briefcam helps the police to investigate crimes, proactively fight crime and traffic congestion, identify drug hot spots, make streets safer, boost economic activity, and promote business growth.

This NexusTalks reception was graciously hosted by Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher.
