Facilitate transparency and efficiency

Police Information Sharing System Features

These law enforcement communication systems can help units and departments interoperate much more effectively while ensuring the privacy and safety of sensitive information.

The systems features include:

  • Secure information sharing
  • Analytical support services
  • Improved preparedness and officer safety
  • Optimized decision-making and strategy coordination

Group calls, inter-departmental as well as inter-regional communication are critical for optimal policing in any given area. Real-time geolocation, bodycam video, maps and images on demand, license plate reading, as well as warrant & arrest database queries can all be exchanged with HQ from inside or outside the police car while maintaining voice contact with dispatch. This significantly improves the situational awareness of officers during any given scenario.
