Thin Blue Line Takes The High-Tech Road To Tracking Equipment

The “thin blue line”, the popular phrase to describe the role of police in society, may in future be known as the “thin digital line” as technology changes the face of policing around the world. Police departments, like other large organisations, have embraced information technology to streamline internal processes and improve administrative efficiencies. But technology is also playing a more prominent role on the front line.

Hardcat’s latest product is its enterprise law enforcement equipment tracking solution. Hardcat Lebosi software tracks equipment, controls firearm allocation and compliance. The platform is scalable, web-based and can be deployed “in the cloud”, enabling multiple applications to be added and allowing 50,000-plus users online simultaneously.
