Why First Responders Need Real-Time Collaboration Tools
For law enforcement officers and first responders, instant access to mission critical data and real-time connectivity is crucial. That's why rugged tablets have become a preferred platform for law enforcement applications. They offer mobility, functionality, connectivity, and lightweight ruggedness, providing officers with the ultimate collaboration tool.
Officer collaboration across locations and devices plays a pivotal role in increasing situational awareness. A system that employs rugged tablets enables personnel—at headquarters, on patrol, or in the field—to stay in sync and gain critical insights by creating, editing, and jointly developing action plans, incident notes, and data analysis in real time. Officers can save and share content with their commanders and with each other—in a highly secure environment that meets stringent regulatory requirements. Teams are connected even further with instant messaging and real-time conversations and consultations, so first responders and law-enforcement personnel can collaborate across departments, locations, and apps.
Common rugged tablet applications include:
- Field interviews
- Ticketing and citations
- Investigations (accident, criminal, etc.)
- Personnel tracking and deployment
- Field command center operations
- Security and crowd control
- Emergency response
- Real-time access to various department databases
- Photo evidence and cataloging
