Tracking Custody and Location of Law Enforcement Equipment
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 tracks equipment and controls firearm allocation. 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.
Hardcat has been working with Victoria Police and is currently undertaking a state-wide roll-out of a system for critical and high-risk assets such as firearms. It also has several pilot projects with various police forces around the world, including the Australian Federal Police.
“Police forces are very interested in what we have. The key reason is that we can control equipment as well as firearms and that is very important to police departments,” says Dan Drum (CEO of Hardcat). “The issue and return of firearms by police forces are time-consuming. But with Hardcat solutions, a wave of the wand picks up the barcode, or a doorway picks up an RFID tag, identifies the officer and attaches the operational equipment (including firearms) to that person.”
