Title The effect of age on technology acceptance among field police officers Type Conference Article
Year 2013 Publication ISCRAM 2013 Conference Proceedings – 10th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2013
Volume Issue Pages 468-477

Abstract This paper studies the differences on technology acceptance between two age groups among uniform police forces. The goal was to seek more understanding on the effects of age on technology adaption in the context of mandatory technology use. Data was collected from police officers in field operations. User intentions were measured after subjects had seen a presentation of a pre-prototype of a mobile information system on the video. The results of this study suggest that there is no difference between the old and young age groups. Similarly, the results suggest that the effect of age is similar between the age groups on the effects of the factors in the research model. This suggests that the old police officers are similar to young police officers regarding the acceptance of new technology for their use. The most prominent result was that regression of behavioral intention on perceived usefulness was not statistically important.

Title SUCRE: Supporting users, controllers and responders in emergencies Type Conference Article
Year 2014 Publication ISCRAM 2014 Conference Proceedings – 11th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2014
Volume Issue Pages 255-259
Keywords Information systems; Mobile devices; Web services; Citizens; Command and control centers; Contextual information; Emergency response; Information infrastructures; Mobile information systems; Responders; Situational awareness; Emergency services
Abstract We use the term “Personal Safety Assistants” (PSAs) to refer to a family of mobile information systems that intend to reduce the risks of both citizens and responders in emergency responses. Using their mobile devices, they can access to personalized views of the emergency plans including context-aware evacuation instructions or real time guidance to specific locations for rescue operations, among others. Additionally, both responders and citizens act as context sources sending fresh information (e.g. pictures of damaged areas) to the command and control center, increasing situational awareness. In this paper, we show how the SUCRE infrastructure collects and processes contextual information to improve the information infrastructure during responses. We describe the current status of the system and outline the incoming enhancements.
