Law Enforcement Rugged Tablet Solutions

Law enforcement is one of the most responsible and tough job in any country, as it is the department, which keeps our society civilized. However, it always accompanies complexities due to the nature of job. In addition to all other issues a new issue that is faced by sheriffs is advance technology used by criminals.
The crooks are well equipped with latest technical devices and in order to be ahead of them the police department needs to find a solution. The laptops in the sheriff’s car is not helping them out and they need a handy tablet PC that can be used in their daily tasks like forensic, evidence collection and management, video surveillance, license plate recognition, sharing data and connecting with colleagues.
The solution lies in a versatile ops-room condensed into a portable machine with appropriate hardware design for fast data transaction with the local stations in vicinity and the main control center.

We understand your needs
As per the nature of job there can be lot of running, chasing, evidence collection and verifications in the day-to-day duty. Fingerprints matching/scanning, collecting pictures from crime scene, verifying license plates are the regular needs and all these can be made easy with a handy tablet. However, not any tablet is the solution for the law department. A consumer tablet can not fulfill the department’s requirement as they need something which is drop proof (so that you can drive and chase without worrying about the device), can bear shocks, work in sunlight with high speed, can give good battery backup and must be secure (as you are going to access very confidential data). Other than ruggedness of the tablet the department also needs customized apps, as the usual apps that are in any tablet may slow down the device and bring a threat for the data security. Connectivity is other major requirement; a sheriff will need to connect with the control room/other colleagues or share information about any particular incident of past or present.
