“At IACP 2019, I really hope that you’ll make every moment count, with countless opportunities to be inspired, gain insight and make connections. This is the most important event in law enforcement where see and hear about cutting edge education and technology.” – Superintendent Eddie Johnson of Chicago PD.
For over a decade, All Traffic Solutions has been honored to attend the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Conference and Exposition. Each year, our excitement to showcase our products and software only increases! As Superintendent Johnson said, IACP is an opportunity to become educated on cutting-edge technology that support law enforcement professionals serving anywhere from small towns to the largest cities in the world.
Some of the topics and trends being discussed at IACP this year, such as Community-Police Relations, Officer Safety, and Response to Active Threats tie in with our mission.
Community-Police Relations: Sometimes, all it takes is seeing one of our radar speed signs on the street that adds a sense of protection and care from law enforcement to concerned citizens.
Officer Safety: Our vehicle counters are low power and easy to deploy roadside; unlike road tubes, which can put officers’ lives at risk. When responding to an accident, they can set up our InstAlert 24 folding message sign on a portable post, grab the battery pack and share a warning message with drivers in about a minute to stay back.
Response to Active Threats: Police can share emergency messages with the public fast at incident scenes and in lock-down situations.
What’s New at Booth 3817
This year, we’ve introduced two new and important alerting solutions – the ATS FloodAlert detection and notification system, and the ATS Wrong Way Solution. In addition, we continue to be the only manufacturer of folding messaging boards you can find anywhere (the amazingly InstAlert 24 – see above!) Our products are American-made, portable, durable, cloud connected, and highly accurate.
If that doesn’t peak your interest, here are a few more reasons why you should visit Booth 3817 at IACP 2019 in Chicago.
We won’t have tasers, body cams – or dogs – but we will be showcasing our impressive line of radar speed signs, radar messaging displays, variable messaging signs, speed trailers (ALPR-ready available), vehicle counting and classification devices, handheld Lidar devices and our patented TraffiCloud® remote management software. Also look for us demoing TraffiCloud at the Wanco booth #4639 with their TraffiCloud-ready signs.
We’re also giving away two handcrafted wooden wall flags from the Flags of Valor – a veteran-owned business located in Ashburn, VA – honoring our men and women in blue. FOV flags are made by combat veterans, many of whom were wounded in battle.
In the time I’ve been with ATS, one of my favorite aspects of the job are the conversations I have with our customers (in this case, with members of law enforcement). It means more than anything that we as a company get to play a part, large or small, in helping such a selfless and noble industry, and to hear that our innovations are helping keep communities safe. Especially when these customers are putting their lives on the line every day.
You may not know this, but police are required to respond to every single traffic and/or speeding complaint they receive. More than half of the time, those speeding complaints are inaccurate and extremely time-consuming. So, we make it simple, less time-consuming and provide accuracy through data reports via TraffiCloud. Our products and software leverage real-time data to calm traffic, share notifications, manage availability, and make traffic management better—while maximizing resources, revenue and budget.
Our customers include police departments, departments of transportation and public works, municipalities, emergency management and safety departments, and higher education/K-12, as well as trucking and parking and many others.
ATS has had many notable accomplishments over the last twenty years, and will continue to strive to serve customers with the best technology and most reliable products.
We are thankful for the opportunity to exhibit at IACP 2019 and hope to see you in Chicago!
