Rugged Tablets for Law Enforcement

Tablets, or more specifically rugged tablets, are quickly gaining ground as a preferred computing platform for mobile law enforcement applications. Tablets on the market today offer power, functionality, connectivity, enterprise-grade operating systems such as Windows 10, and ruggedness comparable to or exceeding laptops, with the added benefit of a lightweight, compact design that's highly mobile.

Rugged Windows tablets open the door to increased productivity and efficiency that go beyond the patrol car to include officers on foot or on motorcycle, bicycle, and horseback. This can not only help officers do their jobs better, but also lead to improved officer safety.
