A growing number of cloud-connected devices and the development of 5G allow data to be shared at an unprecedented rate. These hyper-connected environments can help law enforcement agencies improve emergency response and citizen services by merging previously separated data silos.

Police agencies without large budgets or limited access to technology are reaping the benefits from technological advancements in CAD systems for law enforcement, which facilitate faster and more efficient investigations.

Public safety clouds are typically used by law enforcement agencies to help them manage and store their data in a cloud-based environment to reduce data storage and management costs. The security of a cloud computing environment protected by SSL encryption is significantly higher than that of traditional on-site servers used by most agencies in the past.

Technology has improved significantly over the years, enabling departments to do much more than just maintain records. Besides serving as portable data terminals, CAD can also serve as a tool for records management, offering 911 dispatchers access to data in real-time.

Designed to bring together the benefits of advanced walkie-talkie technology and cellular network coverage, push-over cellular radio technology is offering a unique combination of features that meet the needs of both the end users and the network providers. In addition to walkie-talkies, law enforcement can expand their coverage area and widen their reach by using the 3G and 4G technology that wireless companies have built.

Various organizations are using drones and robotics to increase the productivity of their organization which is helping to push the market forward. New modern technologies are being used by law enforcement agencies to increase their efforts in crime prevention.

Demand for law enforcement software is expected to grow further as demand for intelligence software and facial recognition increases technologies grow. There is a growing demand for law enforcement software in conjunction with the use of AI for predictive policing, and crime mapping software is becoming increasingly popular.

Approximately 53.9% of the world's population is urbanized, and the number is predicted to reach 68.4% by 2050, according to the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs. Global spending on smart cities was estimated at USD 14.85 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach USD 34.35 billion in 2020, according to the Consumer Technology Association.

Political reforms and social development in Asia have been significant growth in the law enforcement software market. Most of the region's economies are more susceptible to cyberattacks as a result of their large populations of technologically insecure users. These users are becoming the primary targets of cybercriminals.

Integration of Advanced Technologies to Augment Law Enforcement Software Sales

The use of advanced software, such as predictive analytics, digital & mobile forensics, and crime analytics by law enforcement agencies is on the rise, mostly because the world is experiencing robust digital transformation and police forces are expected to be able to work from the office and the street seamlessly.

This is creating new opportunities, not only for the modernization of legacy systems such as computer aided dispatch and record management systems, but also for the implementation of new and advanced capabilities such as forensic case management, body worn cameras, predictive policing, crime analytics, digital & mobile forensics, and digital evidence management.

Law enforcement departments are now relying more than ever on advanced technologies such as: financial investigations, cyber defense activities, big data & data analytics, and more to conduct their everyday operations. 

USA and Canada Law Enforcement Software Demand Outlook

USA is one of the major revenue generation source for law enforcement software globally. The United States has always remained at the forefront of technology adoption across industries, given its strong economy and government support. Thus, North America majorly driven by the USA, is likely to hold a substantial share of the global law enforcement software market.

This growth is attributed to the presence of a large number of vendors setting up their businesses in the region, such as Oracle Corporation, IBM Corporation, Omnigo Softwares and others offering advanced solutions for law enforcement operation management.

Moreover, Canadian government is also significantly investing in data protection and public safety strategies. For instance, in the House of Commons, Canadian legislators recently introduced Bill C-11 to enact the Consumer Privacy Protection Act. This bill embodies the principles of Canada's digital charter, which envisages the internet as a tool for both innovation and the public good.
