With advancements in mobile computing for police departments, computing capabilities that were formerly accessible only via police department computers at the precinct are now fully available to law enforcement officers while they’re out on patrol. These newly designed, robust police mobile computers provide improved opportunities for officers to successfully meet the challenges of modern policing.
First and foremost, police car laptops allow officers to have more visible time in their communities, which frees them from working longer hours behind a computer back at the station. In addition, by having fast and reliable access to the information they need while out on patrol — via emails, updates, hazard warnings, crime maps, databases and more — law enforcement personnel are better able to respond to the public’s needs, as well as complete routine parts of their administrative duties while still out on the street.
Finally, by digitally collecting real-time, field-based data, information on everything from traffic violation patterns to serious crime activity can be shared more quickly with the rest of the department for a more informed police force.
Key Datalux Products Benefiting Law Enforcement Agencies
With the ability to pull records quickly via fast, wireless central database connections, the following Datalux products are the latest generation of powerful in-vehicle and handheld police mobile computers:
- The Tracer TF120 is the latest in Datalux’s in-vehicle mounted mobile PCs. Developed specifically for use in police, fire and rescue vehicles, the TF120 is powered by the very best in Intel Core processing technology — either an i5 or i7 CPU. In addition, it can withstand the harshest conditions with its rugged metal enclosure assembly. The TF120 forms the center of a complete mobile data vehicle solution with a removable backlit keyboard, super bright touchscreen display and full range of connectivity features.
- The TM110 Rugged Tablet combines the best in versatility and high performance. Designed by Datalux to MIL-STD 810G, the TM110 can serve as both an in-vehicle computer and a robust removable tablet that can stand up to shocks, vibrations, spills and even drops on the ground. Its 11.6-inch screen is both lightweight and super bright, with approximately 25 percent more viewing area than comparable 10.1-inch tablets — making it exceptionally readable for drivers when dash mounted.
- The TRU-Mount provides ergonomic mounting for both the TF120 and TM110 models. In addition, its well-engineered, safety-conscious design makes it incredibly easy to install and use in either standard police cruisers or SUVs.
