Hertfordshire Constabulary is investing £3 million in technology to support frontline policing as part of its Mobile Data Project. The project aims to increase efficiency and effectiveness by providing access to cutting-edge technology for frontline officers and staff.

The force has been working closely with Panasonic, Vauxhall and KME (Kent Modular Electronics) to test new in-vehicle devices loaded with key operational applications.

A fleet of 86 police vehicles fitted with crime-fighting technology will now go on trial. The vehicles feature the Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 rugged tablet with Windows 8 Pro, an 8.4in high-resolution multi-touchscreen monitor developed by KME and a 4G compatible broadband router enabling high-speed internet connectivity.

These will provide officers and staff with real-time information to support them in their operational duties. In turn, this aims to increase police visibility and accessibility as officers are less likely to need to return to their base to carry out intelligence checks or input data.
