Where Have We Gone Wrong In Controlling Our Society & The Streets?



 We Have the Best and Advanced Crime-Fighting Technology
and We Fail On the Simplest Problems
By Nicholas Ashton, CEO/CIO CommSmart Global Group

Why? 

Because of complacency and managerial misunderstandings.  

No, it is not across the board, it is pockets of missing links and those that have no clue in the use of Digital Policing technology and today’s social pitfalls.

Public Safety is the most difficult job you can ever think of, whether you get in right or wrong, you are damned by the public and the media.  

Listen to any police officer or attorney/prosecutor press conference and you know what I mean.  Questions that the 'press' has been told cannot be answered due to the nature of the case.  Questions regarding the evidence in the case, that they know full well cannot and will not be discussed outside of the courtroom.

CommSmart Global Group, a LexisNexis Risk Solutions Partner has a full quiver of Digital Policing solutions including LENSS (Law Enforcement Network Sharing Solution) with every aspect of public safety covered.

Expertise is second to none and moreover, down to earth in its understanding. 

Yes, we have technology that is understandable by all, if the only hierarchy would stop trying to re-invent the digital wheel, listen, review solutions that are supporting law enforcement agencies globally successfully.

Today we focus on two very important issues are surfacing and need our undivided attention.
  •   Canine Patrols with Sniffers for explosives, drugs and border contraband with a stronger community presence

  •   Excited Delirium, (In-Custody Death), not so much what it is, it is how to effectively resolve the issue, saving the individual, the effects on the officer and the finances of a municipality and department
As the leader in Circle of Fire of StreetSmart Technology, through our down to earth knowledge and experience focus on situations through our analytical minds and services.   

This week we will highlight the two subjects we have seen radical changes in. 

The Boston Marathon bombing four years ago was and a wake-up call and we need to revisit the most successful attribute in crime fighting, the dog.  

The Canine Crime Fighter with a nose for success.  Success has that sweet smell that makes that difference to the safety of the streets and that is the total goal.

Sniffers, as we call them, and our associates who breed and trains canines for explosive detection, using proven street-smart techniques and solutions.  

Their dogs are for sale and for use on a per assignment basis.  Drug detection is also part of our solutions.  Stadium sweeps are vital for the security of public events and there is nothing finer than a dog to check a stadium or concert venue and then once it is cleared locked down and sealed until the event.

In-Custody Deaths is a major concern and we highlight the massive growing reasoning cause linked to Excited Delirium.  These deaths have been growing exponentially and have now moved into a realm of major concern.  Why?  The use of products that are being used for things other than they were designed for. 






Bath salts as a Zombie drug and the dangerous outcome for the users and the department that stumbles across these incidents and how they are handled.  They are even sold on Amazon.com!

Even the departments who have spent the time to examine the problem are still not addressing it with the caution and safety factors that are required.

Lives are being lost and departments are facing civil suits that in most cases they fail to win.  This puts foolish individuals at risk, the officers, and the department’s coffers.  Losing a lawsuit of this magnitude cost you more than a chunk of your budget, which depletes resources.  We shall go in-depth, later in the week.  Stay tuned!

The CommSmart Global Group brings the solutions and also offers our Circle of Fireteam to address your public safety departments in one and two-day seminars.  We instill the information and bring back the inner Trust, Respect, and Pride to the departments through knowledge, which is taken back to the streets and communities.  

Our Pied Piper Road Show is ready for you, contact us and see how we can positively assist you and your communities.


WE are in the NOW and
KEEP YOU; in the KNOW…

Stupid In-Fighting Detracts From Problems & Logical Solutions

Stupid In-Fighting Detracts From
Problems & Logical Solutions


Every company, family, and community have one, two or maybe more.  Who?  That absolute curmudgeon, pain in the ass and the one who stirs the mire, just because they can and are oblivious to how they are acting.

Male, female, old, young, ill-informed and just an all-around nitwit!

They themselves cannot see that they are not a true team player and damaging all that surrounds them.  Behind their back, the comments regarding their derogatory attitude are loud, cutting and prove they are not team players as they have not been included in the discussion or chit-chat.

Possessiveness is fine when it is your own personal Teddy-Bear, but when you start fighting with your own team, family and business colleagues, then we have more than a problem.

It is hard enough to communicate with for us all, but possessiveness, which turns into aggressive foot stomping and endless emails and that “I will not take No for an answer attitude” is a deal breaker and socially imprudent.

If this continues, in my case I will turn my back and walk away, having nothing to do with them and the issue will be left lying there on the table, as I will not participate in the argumentative, nonsensical dialogue.  The potential client or family member suffers and does not want to know about the internal hissy fits of dumb individuals. I am too old, to waste time, effort and money on those type of people.

There is nothing that replaces solid experience, long-time relationships, proven track record, and a listening ear.  Maybe I and our team are different, we do not think so.  Sure, we do not agree on how some corporations and individuals present their business, we steer clear of disagreeing with them and walk out of the room, so to speak, it is our way.  If they don’t like it, they know the door they came in is also their exit.

Globally the wasted words and actions of individuals are literally killing society.  
Knowledge is King, sadly most in these city issues, like the legal death of a criminal who scoffed the law is twisted by those that just want trouble.  Those that start the reactionary violence are normally dissociated, they are from out of town who goads the community, especially those that are of a lower education level, unemployed and easily led to be the frontline of violence against the community and law enforcement.

Law enforcement has become “Piggy in the Middle”, which has gone beyond deadly.

Today, it is the informational attributes of a community, individuals that will save the day.  Why? Simple, the proactive approach enables the understanding, social patterns and key issues that can be predicted and resolved.

Yes, data that is accessible to use now, social media monitoring, crime mapping, analytics and predictive analysis for all.  That includes the officer on his or her beat.  Not only at the start of each shift but updating and sharing with other officers on adjacent beats.  Proactive information for officer safety when going on a call for service.  Enabling local and public information to establish and verify what has occurred previously at the call for service location.  Never has this level of professionalism being available all the way to those that matter most, the street level officer.

CommSmart Global Group is innovators of record with a full understanding of what the street issues are.  Former law enforcement officers who globally have dealt directly with the concerns.  It is from a Change Agency perspective that we have approached our community problems.  As a LexisNexis Risk Solution Partner, the access to public records and data enables a level of proactive predictive analysis like no other.

From our openness of what we like in communication shows you we are down to earth and will work alongside you to discuss your local problems and the resolutions at hand.

Yes, we will work beside you using our skills and passion for adjusting our societal issues.  Including the LENSS (Law Enforcement Network Sharing Solution) for cross-border/agency communications, investigative alerts, BOLOs,  currency tracking, and active shooter solutions
