Police Vehicle 2.0 – The future of Digital Policing
New solution extends digital support to police officers on the streets
German police officers have access to a host of valuable information when in their vehicles from the details of their next call out to useful information databases and important office applications. But a new technology solution is enabling officers to take this digital intelligence with them onto the streets when they exit their vehicles.
Emergency Services tech leaders - Panasonic, B&T Solutions, Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity and Tonfunk – have teamed up to offer the complete Police Vehicle 2.0 solution. Police vehicles using the popular Tonfunk Polaris interactive control system can now extend its use outside of the vehicle using a secure connection to a Panasonic TOUGHBOOK device.
Thanks to support from Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity, the connection meets BSI-approved IT security standards with a secure browser, a software-based VPN client and hard drive encryption. The solution is also VS-NfD authorised for secure data.
Emergency services integration specialists, B&T Solutions, ensure that the devices are installed safely and in a user-friendly way whether in the front of the vehicles or stored away for use when leaving the vehicles.
So, the next time you see a police officer outside of their vehicle with a rugged tablet in their hand, it’s likely you have just seen the future of mobile computing policing – Police Vehicle 2.0.
