Gadgets from the Korean company will performvarious tasks that a policeman needs while working. This includes receiving calls from the dispatcher, and checking documents and machines, and even writing reports. Moreover, officers will be able to view and control street cameras. One of the advantages of using smartphones is a single ecosystem of applications, which can also be useful for photos, recording audio or notes.
“Police DeX” will include access to“ShotSpotter” system, which determines the shooting and where it occurred. It is also planned to introduce voice notes in the reports. The police department is confident that this will reduce paper work.
